Glad you had a safe trip. What size trailer is it and what is your TV setup? I am still using my old truck but will be upgrading when I am closer to not having to work Monday through Thursday.

Wow! 11 hours is about the most have done. Can't imagine 18 hours. You must have found a really good price somewhere to do that.

Add your Monte info and truck info to your signature. Will help others offer advice when ever you might be asking questions about operation or problems with either.

the mileage was about 400 each way, so 1/2 of it was towing but it was all driving. a couple hours at the turn around for trailer Ed.

Marty, my pickup is a Ford F350 SB SRW with the 6.7 diesel.

Thanks everyone! O by the way Keystone says 37'-11" a plumb bob and a 100' tape says 39' 10 or so to the back of the ladder to the front of the cap.

now if I could just get the AM FM radio to make sound

Yes, that measure is what we found when we measured ours.

Mark-- That length is typical for all units now. The measurement in the spec is from the middle of the pin box to the rear bumper or rear cap. The balance is the rest of the way up to the nose of the pin box to the ladder on the back. Glad you made it home and hope you find your new unit a joy to own and live in. If you have questions fire away on here and when something comes up answer other's questions. Have a great time and if you want to join us for the MOC Central Plains Regional Rally(CPRR)come join us in Nebraska in July. Check it out here on the Forum.

Mark your 3610 was a model that we looked at and my wife's second choice. We had to compromise on the size. She really wanted the raised rear living room, I liked the extra storage under it. We ended up with the 3160 as I still have my old Ford SRW one ton 7.3 TV. I did not want to overload my old truck towing a few years before upgrading to a new TV. Sounds like your tow rig worked great. As for overall length I was also worried about being to long for a lot of the places I intend to visit. I also liked having the kitchen layout like your 3610. I am sure you will enjoy your rig, I think it is one of their better layouts.

Good luck with your new rig. We have a 2014 3610 and love it. Pulling it with a 2012 F-350 6.7 diesel SRW. No issues. Enjoy.
