Well, we made it through our first trip in our new 28 BHS. We absolutely love it!!! As far as we can tell we have no problems with the trailer so far. I was kinda worried after all the horror stories I had heard. We even had another Outback camping right across from us.

Yeah, I just thought I would try it again and see if it worked. It just took me this long to get back to a computer since I was off enjoying the Arkansas heat, ha ha.
It was in the upper 90's all weekend with high humidity. yuk.
We spent a lot of time inside watching movies between short walks and grilling outside.

I suppose you're at your Max. GCWR of your tow vehicle?
Your 1/2 ton short bed truck will probably weight close to 5000#, driver only. And your TT will weigh ~5600#, roll-out from dealer with options, battery and 60# of propane, plus a conservitive 1000# of "stuff" for camping, that puts the 28BH-S at around 6500# ready to camp less water, so Truck + TT = 11,500#. That's my GCWR on my F150. With my truck and other happy campers that travel with me (wife and two grown kids) puts me over GCWR by a few hundred pounds. That's what scares the ---- out of me! (insurance liabilitiy). A hungry shark (lawyer) would ruin my future if ever in an unfortunate accident towing out of spec. I know I may seem a bit paranoid, but just trying to weigh my risk.
