New Vilano 360 RL

i have been living and traveling for the past six years in a travel trailer logging 38k miles. It was plum worn out. I upgraded to a 2019 Vilano 360RL. Living in style now. I opted for 8k axles with disc brakes. First road trip when school is out in May is Philly to Seattle via Alabama (I have to swing by and visit mom)

With 3 ac's you should be able to hang meat in there. Does it have a genset?

i had it prepped for the genset but right now I donít spend a lot of time off grid. I will purchase it in the future. I figured if one ac were to breakdown I would have a backup.

Great choice on the upgrades of the axles and discs. Guarantee you won't regret them. I want to put 8Ks and discs on my Montana like Roy did.

Looks like the Vilano's are made in Mississippi. Possibly part of the Tiffin/Allegro group built in Alabama. Nice looking 5th wheel inside and out.

The cabinetry in them is VERY nice.

That is a super nice trailer. Roughing it in style for sure. Good call on the upgraded axles and brakes, that's a lot of payload you have. Did you upgrade the tires also? The reason I ask is I upgraded to load range G tires on my gooseneck I took delivery on in January of 2017. Fast forward to last Friday when I picked up a nail somewhere along I-95 in South Carolina. I made it to a Goodyear commercial service shop in Savannah to get it changed. Upon further inspection the tech discovered that not only was there a nail in my tire but the rim had a small crack about 3" long right down the center. The tech said it could have been from the heat build up caused by running it at low pressure. Thankfully, for the tire and ultimately the load, I-95 was a parking lot most of the way southbound to the Ga. line where it opened up to 3 lanes. That's probably the only thing that kept the tire from blowing out was the reduced speeds. Back to the rim: When I ordered the trailer I ordered 7k torsion axles, elec/hyd discs, and load range G tires. Evidently the trailer was shipped with load range E tires because the rims that are on it are only rated for 3750#. So, if you upgraded the tires make sure the rims are the proper ones.
Sorry if this post sounds discombobulated, we've had a steady parade of customers in here this AM. No complaints!

Very nice indeed. We're looking at the Vilano and the Beacon lines as well. Haven't decided for sure yet, but the we like the full body paint offered in the Beacon line. I was curious if you could let me know what color you have for the cabinetry? I like the color combination you have. None of the brochures indicate which ones are the amber glaze or english chestnut (easy to figure out the mocha).

Thanks and that's a very nice looking rig!
