I heard that they only like to be towed in the left lane.

at least they got the door on the correct side, but a washer in such a small unit? The wow factor is really high. All fiberglass, not molded, ALKO galvanized frames, a acrylic windows, really light, 8 stage battery charger!!

That 550 is a big boy (23' OAL). FRP "single panel" which I guess is fiber reinforced plastic followed by a euphemism for bonded or stuck together at more than one seam. I like the electric bed but $52K+ Aussie is probably a lotta lettuce anywhere.

Me, too...or at least light weight!

But I s'pose 5500 pounds might be "lightweight" compared to some of the units out there...

Our 31 ft Kodiak left the factory with a certified weight under 5100 lbs. Included electric awning, spare tire, two 20# propane tanks, tv, no battery. I had the dealer add a slide-out awning, battery, and swap out the 20# propane tanks for a pair of 30 pounders. Still under 6000# when fully loaded.
