Picking up My raptor

I have to say i have never been so excited about picking up a new trailer like i am about this raptor. i am a long time camper on my 3rd travel trailer but first toy hauler. Getting a 2012 365LEV Velocity and cant wait. any thing i need to look out for before i pick it up? Common problems or what not. hope to be on more soon with some pics

Having previously owned RV's, you are probably well aware of things you should be looking at and for in all units. Hopefully, there will be some Raptor and other toy hauler owners who will chime in with some specific things to check regarding these particular units.
Welcome to the forum - glad you found us.

Raptor 365LEV

Adrian
What will you be towing your new 365LEV with?

We have been looking at that same Model.
Presently have a 2009 Titanium ToyHauler with the side ramp.
Presently have a RoadKing, but a Trike is in our future.
Trailer loaded is about13,500 lb.
TV is 2008 Silverado 2500HD Ext, 4X4 with T/M and A.
Hauls it like a dream.

Caution....use a TV to "pick it up" unless you have super powers

Congrats and enjoy!

I have a 2012 Raptor 365lev and love it!! I pull with a SRW 2011 Dodge 3500 with airbags...no problem!! Rides and handles nicely. We love the camper with the extra bath. The only other one we cosidered was the 3912...but we chose the 365lev because of the larger fridge, North/south master bed, and large awning. No regrets!
