I'm Dave from New Mexico. My family and I (wife & 2 girls ages 9 & 11) are taking delivery of a 2013 2819BHS Aspen Trail on Wednesday. I'm excited but nervous as well. I've read where folks have all kinds of problems with new RV's so naturally I don't want to buy a $22,000 problem.
We love camping up in the high country but tent camping is becoming more & more of an ordeal each time. So we've decided to take the RV plunge.
The trailer weighs approx 6,500 dry and is 32 feet long bumper to end of hitch. It's a little longer than we originally planned but we'll see how it goes. I'm pulling it with a 2012 F250 4x4 Crew Cab with the 6.3L V8 gas moror. I expect to get really good mileage with this TV - hoping for upwards of 18 to 22 MPG. HaHaHa... NOT, maybe down hill in neutral.
Do any of you have experience with the Aspen Trail - good or bad? There's still time for me to back-out.
