Default Hello, Our first HiLo

We (Julie and Larry) just bought our first HiLo. It is a 3302S Classic in very good condition and we love it. Our tow vehicle is a 2016 Ram 1500. It tows it nicely but I am surprised by the heavy tongue weight. I added a weight distribution hitch and that works well to level everything out. We have camped in it a couple times and we are ready to go more. Researching on the internet has shown me that brochure, specs or any information on this unit seems to be non-existent. We live in Florida, just a little north of Tampa and our favorite camping is local in FL and in the North Carolina and Tennessee mountains.

Welcome and congratulations on your HILO. As far as the brochure check out the library on this forum it has a brochure section that will probably have the information you are looking for. Any other question just ask there is a wealth of knowledge here and are happy to help.

Welcome! I'm to the east of you in Polk County. I'm only a few months into Hi-Lo ownership with a 2400. The tongue weight surprised me too! The WDH helps.

Formula, I note that you acquired a Hi-Lo Classic 3302S. As a general rule, the model number is defined as 33 feet in length and model year 2002. Does anyone know the definition of "S" at the end of the model number? If your Classic Hi-Lo is actually 33 feet long, does it rest on triple axles? I would love to see pictures, as I have only seen two of these in my lifetime. Because of the size of this Hi-Lo, I can see why the hitch weight would be up there!!

Formula, one more thing, since I don't see your model in the library for model year 2002, I am speculating that you may have a Hi-Lo which was custom manufactured for someone by the Hi-Lo Company.

I was curious about that too, maybe "S" denotes Special Order? That would indeed be quite a find. Welcome to the forum Formula.

Default Welcome to the forum.

I remember some one mentioned that one particular dealer special ordered 33ft. HiLos. Maybe six or eight a couple years in a row. Then HiLo got rid of the jigs.

I measured it...33 ft rear bumper to hitch. The dealer that sold it to me said that there were only a few made and that they did not appear in any brochure. After a lot of research my insurance company found a new 2002 sale price but could not find any current value information. I dont know what the "S" denotes.
The layout looks similar to the 3102.

I dont know how to post pictures, if you can help me with that I will post pics. Or give me an email and I can send them that way.

Thanks everyone for your warm welcomes.
Larry
