    Hopeful new owners

    Hello to all from central Kansas. My wife and I are waiting to take delivery of our first ever trailer. Our local dealership has a Momentum 29g on order, and is expecting delivery within a month or so. We will almost definitely sign papers for it when it arrives. I am hoping to gain knowledge about Grand Design, and the RV experience in general. I have found that forums are an excellent way to obtain that information.

    I got a call from the salesman today. The 29g is now expected some time in July, and with a 10% price increase. He offered me a 31g that they had in stock that comes in below the new 29g price. I put a deposit down to hold it.

    Congratulations on the 31g. Friends of ours in Florida have one. They load it up with some dirt bikes and go all over.

    Whatcha gonna tow yours with?

    For the time being, an F-150 5.0 liter.

    Um, the tongue weight on the 31g is gonna be somewhere in the neighborhood of 1600-1700 lbs with a GVWR of 12,000. Just my humble opinion, but I don’t think your TV is capable of towing that trailer. I could be wrong (but don’t tell my wife I said that).

    The UVW is 8975. Add another 900 for the Ultra. Around 10,900.
    As for tongue weight, I have 2 extra leaf springs added for my car trailer, and a class 5 hitch.Click image for larger version.

    Have you accounted for the added weight for food, water, propane, batteries, clothes, you, any passengers in TV, whatever you want in the storage bay (chocks, leveling pads, patio mat, chairs, electrical cords, hoses, assorted tools/parts), that you will also be towing?
