Ours is 195' WB. Barth took a 178" WB and added 17". If you check your frame you will see the added section. If you get chance to weigh your rig you might be surprised at how heavy it is. Your probably close to max weight. I think gcwr is 19.5k and your coach is probably close to 14.5k. Just letting know. I was real surprised when I weighed ours. Did your coach come with leveling system.

Old Blue also had a 195" wheelbase. It was 28' long with a rear bath layout. The really interesting thing about "Nameless" is that at 25' on a 155' wheel base, it handles every bit as well as Old Blue.

No leveling system. Would have been nice but sounds like it would have just brought me closer to my weight limit.

Weighed ours with full gas, 5k on front axel, 10k on rear, 3.5k on trailer axel, 500lb on hitch. Our coach has about every option Barth offered including levelers, central vacuum 50gal water tank, 6500 kw gen.
