What I would/may do is change out my MORryde IS 8k to 9k. If anyone is going to be in NW WA this Summer and would like a deal on my 8k system PM me. I do have a Friend with a Metal Fab Shop that has a lot of Trailer experience that can do the RnR. Reason for changing is my axle weight is 17,500# and I would like better braking as my RV weighs 23k.

HA. It ain’t all her. I recently had to remove a few hundred pounds of things that go bang from my basement. The front had dropped a small amount so I hit extend and just sat ther with the hydraulic pump pumping away with no movement. [emoticon]

If money were a “ non-issue”......independent suspension, and full -body paint. Other than that, we’ve got most everything covered.....spray-on (FlexArmor) roof summer of ‘17, 17.5” wheels/tires, hydraulic disc brakes, three axles, Bigfoot Auto-Leveling, six (6) solar panels, six (6) batteries, very quality oak cabinetry, a very heavy duty frame ( pre Lippert), all windows are dual pane, last but not least, a factory guarantee to a minus 20 F ( which it can easily do). Overall.......pretty happy with our old Teton!

Oh.....there is another. We’d be towing (at least when there’s no snow and ice) with a “customized” late model Volvo Class 8, mid-roof 730 or 740....as suggested by my DW! memtb

Since we have the IS suspension, Disc Brakes, 17.5 tires etc on our Mobile Suites, we would go for heated floors, Lithium Batteries, about 2500 watts of solar, and split system heat pumps.

I really appreciate the disc brakes on our unit. If it didn't have disc brakes and I was willing to spend more money on an RV I'd sell what I have and buy what I want rather than spend money on an old trailer.
