Default Newby:Just bought a 1995 Hi-Lo

Going to go pick up a '95 22ft model#269 BR.
Travelling 250 miles with a '96 Shortbed 1500 SLT Ram. Engine is Magnum 5.9 Automatic Tranny w/overdrive. Can't wait to get it. Always wanted a Hi-Lo.
Just have one question here, because I can't seem to find any info online about the weight for this Model. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Can't even find this Model with this particular floor plan. Bathroom across from kitchen area in center by door. Dinette at front facing rear. Two twin beds at rear.
Any clues?

Hi and welcome!

I'm not seeing ANYTHING like what you describe in the HiLo brochures for model year 1995 in 22ft length. However, there IS something very close to your description in a 26ft Voyager. It has an optional model with twin beds, bathroom in the middle, and dinette in front. You can see this model here: https://www.hilotrailer.com/home/then#1990 - It's in the Classic series for 1995. It has a dry weight of about 5000# and a tongue weight of around 750#, which will be your real limitation. I'm sure your truck can "pull" the trailer weight, but the 750# will put a heavy load on your truck's axles. You WILL need a Weight Distributing Hitch (WDH) to transfer about half of that weight to your truck's front axle, or you will likely overload your truck's rear axle.

Possibly, the owner or seller is giving you the length of the "box" that you live in, which is the way MOST trailers are measured. HiLo measures their trailer length from the front of the towing A-frame, to the back of the rear bumper, which can add 3-4 feet to the "box" length.

Hope this helps.

- Jack

Default Welcome to the forum.

Let us know how it towed for you on the trip home. Then we can start you on preventive maintenance. Many of us have had older HiLOS and are well versed on repairs.
