Kurt, I have a 2010SD TM and toe it with a Honda Ridgeline which has a 5000 lb toe rate and use a prodigy brake control. I have never use a Weight Distributing hitch, have always hooked up to full service at campgrounds and run my AC all the time and my awning is good. I don't know where you are located but I will be selling mine in a couple of months as right now it is locked in with snow. I am in the Mass, west of Boston. I need to sell because of back problems. If interested send me a e-mail at [email protected]

I've read on this site that some people have removed awnings to gain width clearance to fit the TM into a single car garage.

Thanks again for all of the information. You guys are great!
The 2720 has a queen size bed in the back and the 2619 has a double/full.

With a 2720, u gain a bigger bed in the rear and a storage locker under/near the bottom of that bed. Many go with a 2619 over 2720 because it will fit in their garage where as a 2720 will not.
If u do have room I'd go with a 2720.
His price in my opinion seems a bit high. It will cost u at least a $1,000 for a new awning unless u can find a used one and install it your self.
The AC will run fine on a 3kwatt generator, I do it all the time.
Odd they did not know the model as I believe it is decaled on the side of most all TM's.
I'd offer at least a grand off what they are asking, maybe even $1500 which gives u more room to negotiate. Always start low and work your way up!
If nothing else u will find out how bad the person wants or needs to sell it and when u have to fix items u did not know were broken, u have it covered since u bought it right.
Good luck.

I have an agent in Miami, he is the one who shipped all the things I buy in USA.
So is no problem, is a matter of time, they put the Trailmanor on a Flat bed Tráiler.

Sincé Chile has an freecommerce agree with USA I onlo pay 6 % tax.

I replaced mine with a Fiamma F45s which is a newer design and does not stick out as far as the original F45i but is the same size awning.

It came with three brackets and each bracket has a channel at the top to hold the awning and a screw/nut on the bottom of each to retain the awning. Remove the three screws and the whole awning can flip on top of the TM for minimum width but really does not stick out much more than the patio lights.

I did redesign the TM mount (lotsa #6 screws) with a 4 foot 1/8 aluminum "L" from HD cut into three pieces: 2 18" ends and a 12" center. Then used 12 1" #12 SS sheet metal drilling screws on each end and 9 in the middle with three in a triangle through each bracket. Screws are through both cap and wall. Not going anywhere.

Someone mentioned that pop rivets work as well or better but prefer to be removable.

ps the Fiamma instructions say to center the "support" label on the bracket. Don't.
