Nice, that looks like the 285 version of my 295. Does that have the quad bunks in the back? We looked at that and ours and decided we liked the outside kitchen more than the extra bunk.

Ours has been good other than a few recalls. One involved replacing most of the roof though!

Yes, quad bunks. It's the 29QBLE. I wanted the other one, with triple bunks, outdoor kitchen and power jacks (and was 4 or 5 feet shorter), but my wife won. No real camping yet, but so far very pleased.

My 20' dbl axle car trailer which I use to tow my 1963 4x4 Suburban.

You can see one of the new Michelin 275/65/18 LT M/S2 tires I'll be using when towing the Burb.

Nice, I have a similar rig.

Coachmen 23TQX HTT, 3 Queen beds, 1 slide, looks very similar to yours.

It does a decent job.

I have put a lot of time into tweaking my setup to get it right. Just added air bags this year, it stiffened it up the ride a bit more, and I like it for towing.

I try to stay below 65 just for safety and fuel milage. I am currently using a EAZ WDH but am thinking about going with an Equalizer hitch. Thoughts or experiance with this hitch?

Thanks, Ken
I am picking this model up tomorrow,what are you seeing for mileage?
curious what to expect on a trip I have coming up next week.
