    New Momentum owner

    Purchased a Momentum 385 at Fort worth Tx. RV show. I am a full timer and have been looking at toy haulers for over 3 years. I thought I had my mind made up, on another model, but wanted to look at them all 1 more time. I literally stumbled up on the momentum and immediately made my mind up. There was a rep there (wish I was better with names) that went out of his way to answer every question I had, and I'm sure I asked some of them twice.

    I pick it up on Friday. Reading reviews on proper ways to tie down my Ultra. Will load it and golf cart up and go to Midland

    Haven't figured out how to insert sig. line yet.

    Hi there Gadget and welcome to the forums!

    If you go to the top of the website, you'll see a list of click-able words: Home Help Search and Profile. Put your mouse over Profile and a drop-down menu appears. Slide down and click on Forum Profile. You'll find the option to type in a Signature.

    BTW, congrats on your Momentum. It's really a beautiful toy-hauler!

    Gadget 57. Congratulations on the Momentum 385. What height is your golf cart? I noticed there is only 76 inches of space under the happijack system on my Momentum 385 and I am in the process of having a golf cart custom built. I was told I couldn't do a 6 inch lift with 12 inch wheels because it would be to tall. I am probably going to do a 3 inch lift with 10 inch tires so I have clearance when I pull into the garage.

    Re: New Momentum owner

    Did you put knobby tires or low profile tires? I just want to make sure I have the clearance when it comes up the ramp and fits under the happijack system.

    PS I am the same as Shamu. I was trying to decide between the Cyclone 4100 King and the Raptor 381 before I found the Momentum at the Hershey RV show. I was sold the second I saw the Momentum. At that time the 385th was only in prototype but we decided to order it based on a spec sheet that Marc Hauser showed to me. Actually it was my wife who jumped head over heels when she saw the florplan. Thats how I ended up with the 5th Momentum 385 built.
