New 195 here in Conroe north of Houston.  Pulling with a Dodge Durango R/T 5.7l Hemi.  Since September we have made several trial runs from Dallas to Galveston.  Did have the CO2 /LP detector and tongue jack fail but still loving it.  Getting ready for a 4,000 mile pull out to California this December thru January.  Should be exciting.

Welcome to the forums!

 

Thank you for sharing those pictures. The this is the first Retro I have seen with the black on silver and I must say the colors are pretty amazing! How does this large of a trailer pull with your Durango? What type of hitch setup do you have?

We pretty much fell in love with the look of the unit.  And the Durango handles it just fine if you ignore the mileage.  We even got to see the breaking of the rig the other day when 65mph traffic came to a screaching hault.  Must say it helps to have a 6,000 lb car pulling a 4,000 trailer.  Other than a little longer acceleration and longer transmission shift points I really dont know it is there.  

I have a standared load leveling hitch with a single sway bar.  

Lots-o-fun!

Welcome to the White Water Retro Family!

I love that color scheme! It even matches your SUV! We ignore our mileage too but this trailer we get better mileage with than our last one so it was a huge improvement. It’s nice to have a lighter trailer to tow.
