Thank you for the feedback! Have you ever towed it with a 1/2 ton? If so, how did it do?I've had a Mirage 28' v-nose with the Highmark package for 10 years and other than some maintenance repairs it has been fine. I too, would like to know if other owners like another brand better. Mine has a steel frame which some have complained about because of rust, but the rust on mine is only cosmetic without structural issues. I like the heavier steel frame (aluminum is susceptible to corrosion too) as it keeps the weight/center of gravity down low. I have towed mine in heavy mountain cross-winds/blizzards and it pulls great.
Years ago Mirage developed a really bad name because of a batch of horrible axles they received.I thought they were good trailers? I can still back out of the deal if i need to. Can you fill me in a bit?
This was my experience with my mirage trailer. Keep in mind it gets washed every trip, stored under cover during off season. I keep my stuff super clean, etc. it was a 2008, bought it new in sept of 08.I thought they were good trailers? I can still back out of the deal if i need to. Can you fill me in a bit?
You may want to do some research on these two. I’ve been reading online that bags and wd hitches counteract with each and make matters worse. wd hitches are made to be used without bags. I’ve seen videos that show the wd hitches working better by placing more weight on the trucks front axle compared to bags, but the tests could be leveraged by wd hitch manufacturers.P.S. I would be putting in air ride in the rear or timbrens at the minimum as well as using a weight distributing hitch.
