Now I know Im going to need a weight reduction hitch, the guy who installed my break controller suggested it, since its that and or an air bladder in the rear coilsprings... I read someone on th Rav4 forum spent like $1800 getting custom springs welded in to stiffen up its rear end... Thats out of my price range... broke now, but have an egg!

The word of a winter storm on the east coast cut short my trip...I really wanted to go to Colonial Williamsburg for a day and just hang out and enjoy the trailer.... but the ride home was pretty easy. I did hav to lower the breaking strength when I had to slam on the breaks and felt my Rav4 pullin backwards cause the trailer breaks were set at like 85% lol. 65% seems pretty comfortable.

The trailer weighs about 2100lbs empty, only had the 2 propane tanks full so it wasn't bad towing it. Im sure normally it will be around 2500lbs for normal trips, still a thousand pounds below my max tow weight. I barely felt it behind me. The first stretch of the ride home was at 55mph and I averaged 16.5mpg. The 2nd tank was at 65-70mph and averaged 13.5mpg big difference.

Two things I notice from the pictures, you have a squat when hooked up, you may need a w/d hitch to shift some weight to the front axle. I also remember seeing Parkliner's dual battery set up and it was wired incorrectly. The feeds go to the positive on battery A and the negative on battery B, Parkliner had the leads going to A battery only, which is incorrect. Can not tell from pictures if it wired correct.

Yeah, I was figuring I would be getting the weight distribution hitch, my little red gypsy cart I built had a tongue weight around 180lbs and I saw how it made my truck squat. I just need to take measurements for which weight distribution hitch I need and order and install it...

Now for the dual batteries, I will have to check... dont remember off the top of my head. I am debateing adding a battery selector switch like I had on my boat so I would have the option of turning them off if there was ever an issue.

I also have to add some 12 volt sockets... unless they are hidden somewhere, I cant find them lol. I have 2 new ones I need to add!

thanks!

That is one nice thing about the Parkliner and EggCamper, ease of finding a 12v circuit and adding an outlet or running a new dedicated 12v circuit to your socket.
