New Raptor Owner

Hi all!
Glad to be a part of the Keystone family. This is our 2nd trailer but our first 5th wheel. We purchase a new Raptor 297SE14 in the summer of 2013. We are pulling it with a 2013 F-250 6.7 power stroke. We have towed it just over 4,000 miles since purchasing. The truck is my daily commuter and didn't want to go to a dually. Plus, I like to garage my vehicles and a dually won't fit.

One negative we have found towing to date is the sag in the rear end of the truck. We plan to put firestone air bags on this spring to help with getting leveled back out.

We have had some minor little issues but no majors to date.

We have purchased a camera system and will be installing this spring as well. To help with backing and lane changes during travel.

One question we have is is it worth spending the money on a Rand McNally GPS as well? Our truck has GPS but can't put in parameters for the 5er.

Our plan is to move up to a pusher when time and funds allow it. But, we are enjoying our new 5er!
