The New Trailer Bug Has Bitten Again
We are already SOB's but decided after four years with the current unit, we needed a bigger one. LOL The plans are that this will be the last one.
We are trading our Heartland North Trail 24RBS on an Open Range 288FLR Roamer. It is 33 feet long but GVWR is only 9800 so the truck will have no problem with the new trailer. I'm sure we will have more problems learning to maneuver the bigger unit.
An odd thing happens when we trailer shop: we compare all that we see to the Sunline we owned. Having that as a first unit set the standard for our expectations. The Open Range units remind us very much of the Sunline as far as fit and finish and livability of the floorplans. However, Marshall is very quick to say that the Sunline cabinets had a nicer finish than the Open Range but the Open Range is "close."
Thursday is our delivery date which will be a long day with the PDI and then getting it home. Friday will be spent putting things away and then on Saturday we leave for the Outer Banks and Virginia Beach for Thanksgiving week. Yes we are crazy taking a brand new unit on vacation but the vacation plans were already made and we don't want to cancel them. Keep your fingers crossed for us!!
