    I will say that lengthening the tongue will make backing the trailer up a lot easier. It’s usually an option when ordering these type trailers. A lot of people that tow them behind their RV’s have the longer tongues. Makes them less twitchy when backing up.

      Yessir. Hit the nail square you did. No electric Jack, not yet.
      The fact also that the trailer wasn't level bothered me, and I hated the 8" drop hitch I had to use.
      Backing the trailer will certainly be easier

          For now. Also helps me see it at night. It tucks right in behind the truk and I don't know it's there, I've added addtion blinkers on the fenders and such so I can see it. Most of my driving it at night.
          I'm already wanting bigger, more tires, etc.
          Getting away from the original reason I bought the thing. And the more I pull it apart, the more I realize really how cheaply it is constructed.

            Our daughter ordered one of these REALLY fancy slide in, pop up, pickup toppers for her Tacoma from Four Wheel Campers. I've been helping her with some of the details. It is shocking how much stuff they pack into this little thing and of course how expensive they are. She plans to be a tech nomad, so it will be home for some time. This one is nothing like I remember Uncle Joe dropping on his Chevvy as a kid.

              Nice.
              Those things always scared me.
              Looks "Tippy".

                  There was a massive RV show here in Hershey couple weekends ago. 1000’s of units of every size & description. The cost of the small ones & slide-ins relative to others is just staggering.

                    Thanks! On the positive side, she won't be paying rent or mortgage payments ;-)
                    I wish we could convince her to arm herself and train before setting out on the road in this rig.

                      Which probably is why she is "boondocking" to get away from all the bad stuff, yet, she needs it there as much as anywhere.
                      Unfortunately, she does not sound like a "protect" type.
                      Let's hope and pray for the best.

                        Well. The back end of the trailer may fall off, but the genny will still be on the hitch.
