We also looked at the Polarias RZR trail and it is shorter at 106" We don't have a AC dealer near us.

Like I said I tried, the problem is the front profile is too high even with the wheels off & putting a skate under it wouldn't work. Good luck maybe I missed something, its too bad because I really preferred the RZR & the momentun 376 wont fit the AC. Unfortunately very limited with this rig as a toy hauler.

Bed Lift

I was just raising & lowering the bed when it dawned on me they use a schwin tek system. I dont know if this has been mentioned before but you need to extend & retract all the way & hold the switch until the motors shut off on their own. We have another camper & were having an issue until I found out how to synchronize the motors. what amazes me is how easy they come out of sync, & you are supposed to go all the way with out stopping. Doesn't sound like the ideal set up for the bed lift as sometimes you need move in small increments. I just ran it up & down a few times & each time you hear the motors for a few seconds after the bed stops. Not saying this will fix all the issues but I hope it helps.

We did find that the CFmoto 500 and 800 trail unit that is 50" or less wide will fit with the front tires deflated and using ratchet straps to pull front suppension down. We did this last year.

We just took possession of our new 2020 381TH a few weeks ago and so far issues have been minimal, but I've got to say I'm more than a bit concerned after reading all the problems described in this thread. We may have reconsidered & looked at other options (e.g. Momentum) if we saw this first. We took the 5yr warranty and will be EXTRA vigilant....hoping that what's described here is the exception and not the rule, and that our new 5th wheel serves us as well as we'd hoped.

It's always good to be concerned, but I think most of the issues have been minor & easy to repair. Overall we love our camper but like most here & with other brands have had our issues to work through. Even though these things should be perfect for what we pay they're not so we stay on top of maintenance & repairs, but most of all we enjoy our time using it. The nice thing is you have a lot of help here on this forum & the 380/381 facebook group, you can get a jump on what to look out for plus a lot of help to fix it. My buddy bought a momentum & has had his share of problems , since they have been bought out their QC has changed a bit. There's no perfect camper, just be diligent & enjoy the heck out of it,good luck.
