Well People,we finally bit the bullet & purchased a 2012 Dutchmen 265 BHS. After 2 years of research & narrowing it down to the Kz Spree or the Flaggstaff Vlite we go out shopping & we come home with this baby.
Dont know how to post pics yet, but will figure it out. Any input welcome wether it be good or bad.
Grats on the new Dutchman!!!! Enjoy and we would love to see pictures!!
We are on our second Dutchmen 276RBS trailer, never took delivery of the first one, it went back to the factory for repair. Did a shakedown tour in southern Alberta. Even saw a real life cattle drive. It was a good trip, had some issues but they were warranty. Like the trailer floor plan.
True, getting into the site is often the hardest part. I have bought a Swift Hitch camera and use my wife's directions to get into sites. Many times you have to watch higher up for branches that can damage your trailer. We have a nice gouge from Sibbald Lake to show for inattention. Those dead pine tree branches are sharp! Level from side to side using blocking (always carry some)and chock wheels. Unhitch, pull ahead, level from end to end, and then lower the stabilizer jacks. Watch it though, we find the slide going out can change the side to side level which you need to allow for, I find even with the stabilizer jacks down the slide side will drop or settle. Therefore I will block it a little higher during the side to side leveling.
