Sleeping over at the dealer tonight to make sure there are no bugs. Start home in the morning. The pinbox needs raised but I'm not going to bother. I have a Reese 5th Airbourne waiting at home that will fit under a factory pinbox cover. I had them paint me one when it was in the paintshop. So, it will look cleaner I think than the trail air. By the way, if anyone is in the market for a trail air that's a brand new take off, I'll be selling it when I get home.

Yes, I probably need air bags. I had them before and disliked the jounce bumpers (air lift ultimate) so I sent them back. Will go with a standard bag this time to keep my unloaded ride smoother. That will hold me over until my 2017 DRW...

Wife is cleaning interior now to got it photo ready. More soon...

If you weren't so far away, I would take you up on that Trail-Air if it would fit my TH. Please let us know how different it pulls with the 5TH Airborn over the Trail-Air.

Will compare the two... Bet they are the same, the Reese just hides it's guts inside...

Interior pics. Hope it's not too much for you all... Just extremely excited! My last rig, a 2013 Road Warrior 30C was just not on this level of quality and it is a direct competition line. Not sure if it's the three years newer or XLR is just that much better quality, but holy....

Wow that fiver is amazing. If you do enough camping the time will pass fast enough for the 2017 order banks to open next year as I have a feeling you'll want that DRW.
