Pulled the Trigger!

Hello all, we just pulled the trigger on our first travel trailer! Signed the purchase agreement yesterday for a 2014 Bullet 230BHS. Should hopefully take custody next weekend. Going to pull it with my 2013 RAM 1500 HEMI Crew Cab. We are looking forward to all the good info and opinions offered on the Forum.

Looking at the GVW of the trailer at 6,475Lb and a hitch weight of 475Lb you should have a very nice set up with your tow vehicle. I am assuming that you will be using a WTH and you should find on this forum a great deal of knowledge of things that will make your trips more comfortable. Read all the manuals that come with your new trailer, lots of good stuff in them, and best of luck, your going to have lots of fun!

Welcome & congratulations on your new TT. DW & I brought home our new 5er yesterday. A Cougar 26SAB & we're towing it with a 13 XLT, HD Ecoboost. Had about a 50 mile tow & oh what a fantastic setup. You'll have so much fun in the coming years. Enjoy it.

Hi! We're going Saturday to put the money down on our new 230 BHS!

Did you have the dealer make any modifications for you?

I want them to move that outlet above the kitchen sink down to the wall or the counter top so the coffee maker isn't hanging from the 'ceiling.'

Any other 230BHS owners out here have any suggestions before I hitch it up and bring it home?

No mods for us, we use a peculator when camping, so the outlet being up high wasn't an issue for us. so far, so good, spent the nigh in the driveway, just to break her in. Except for the brake problem we have, no other issues!
