Brad,

Have you decided on which camper is going on the back?

Do you think the bags and shocks are necessary, especially in light of the fact that you were talking about a nine foot camper in the past?

Kehale, if you try to install your Superhitch yourself, good luck. I tried yesterday. I got it on now, held on by two bolts. But need to take it to a professional to complete. The directions are not very clear on what washers to use where in the frame. Plus when I tried to fish a bolt though the frame for the forward hole, I got the fishing wire stuck with the bolt on it stuck in the washer and now I can’t get it through. I also think that I used the wrong washers in the two bolts that I have in there holding the thing on. So they may have to come back out. Ugh!

I am still hoping to install the Tiedowns myself. We’ll see.

I paid a buck for the shipping too. What a deal!
