    • Water pressure regulator is a must - I went with the cheap ones to begin with and found they failed after a year or so, so bought an expensive one with the needle to show you the pressure.  Bad thing is they can't be out in freezing weather or they break....two of those later, I saw a post from another RVer about one that is set at 55 gpm and is a reasonable price.  On my 2nd one of those ONLY because I left the first one somewhere this summer.  You can look at a dozen of the regulators on Amazon and then price check other places to get the best deal. Surge protectors are also important and you can go several ways ($-$$).  I have a Progressive portable (not hard wired) and like it because it's easy to read and has been on the spot when low voltage or another problem shows up.  Since I full time and visit lots of parks each year I like having a beefy EMS to watch over my trailer. Hey fpmtngal, we were typing at the same time!
    • A bob tailed HDT is no longer and wider then a 3500 CCLB in most cases. Its just taller.
    • If its a Cab and chassis I would. Not the pickup. ITs derated to class 3 and GVW is anemic.
    • Water pressure regulator definitely - I’ve stayed at parks that say their water pressure could reach up to 100 psi in places.  My trailer was only designed for somewhere between 40 and 50, don’t want any plumbing leaks caused by high pressure. I have a Progressive Industries EMS (electrical management system).  It protects against both high voltage and low voltage (which can also be damaging), plus wiring problems like reversed polarity or open ground.  You can get cheaper surge protectors but they don’t protect against as many things. 
    • I was looking at Nuwa/ Kansas rv center website.  It says they partnered with a private kansas rv manufacturer.  To produce a Hitchhiker at there specifications etc. Has anyone else seen this and i wonder who is building it.   http://www.nuwa.com/kansasrvcenter/
