New Redwood Height 13'1"

IS raised me 3". At least I know. Elkhart to Des Moines today, IS is performing flawlessly. I am sure my scooter hanging off the rear loves it as well.
Met a guy there with a new $170k list Elite Suites removing the 8k axles and Kodiak brakes for IS 9k. His front axle weight was 8,100 lbs before adding anything to the trailer. DRV told him it was his problem. He is not a happy camper.

Wow, wonder what the total weight across both axles were.

Confused. Is the height of your Redwood now 13' 1", or was that the height before the change in axles?

Hmmm...I'm at 13' 4" with stock set-up. Do you think the IS dropped you?

No, I was at 12'10" before IS. Maybe difference in 2012 & 2013? FL vs RE? not sure.

Have you measured? Website shows all RWs at 13' 2", with both Ac's.

My RL was 13.4 to the top of the forward vent (with a 2012 F350 4x4). I had the suspension worked on and I believe it's now a couple inches taller. Anytime I see a sign of 13.6 I tend to tense up a bit. With the airbags I can lower my unit about 3 inches if I get stuck.

I was measured at Mor/ryde before and after. I know as I get older, I get shorter. Probably true for Redwood as well.

Our '13 FB is 13' 2" at the forward AC, the Fantastic Fan cover vent over the Bath takes us to 13' 4".

Assuming the IS will add 3 inches I would be over the legal limit @ 13' 7" if I installed the suspension upgrade!!!

I think it all depends how level you are now towing. I was 3" nose high so they raised the trailer to tow perfectly level.

I hope we're all taking our measurements while hitched. 13' 4" here.

John, is the 13' 4" before or after you added the vent covers?

Vaughn, do you have the vent covers @ 13' 3"?

Chuck that is the height from the top of the forward AC unit to the ground. My vent covers are no higher than the AC units. The MorRyde IS raised my rear height 2 inches or so as our coach was riding nose high on our truck.

Thanks John. Our FB's high point is the vent cover in the bath area, it's 13'4", the forward AC is 13'2". We don't have the MorRyde IS so adding it could be problematic.
