    Newbie -- Would I regret not having the Leveling Up Option?

    I think I'm close to my first purchase, a Cyclone 4000, and I'm narrowing in on the options I think I'll need/want.

    There is a trailer local to me without the leveling up option, and several from outside my area with the system. One of these salesmen told me I might really regret not having the leveling system.

    From a newbie's perspective, he made a lot of sense. But before taking his advice to the bank, I thought I'd check in with the experts here. It seems like the leveling system would make pulling into camp and setting up a breeze. Am I missing something?

    Thanks for your advice.

    If I was to do it again I would get it. Its a 3-6 grand upgrade after the fact and would rather it be done at the factory.

    It really just depends on how much your time is worth. Some like levelling and others love the convenience of having it.

    We have been rving for 40 years and have never considered a level up. We rarely use our boards to get the trailer level, most sites are good enough for us. If we are camping for a long period of time(1 week plus) then we get a bit more serious about being reasonably level, mostly so the doors(especially refrig) don't go swinging to much. We consider "good enough" so that we don't notice the tilt.

    I consider it a nice luxury item, would rather put my money into a Morryde IS suspension and maybe disk brakes.

    Re: Newbie -- Would I regret not having the Leveling Up Option?

    I had it added to my last rig as a"show special" at the heartland Homecoming rally in Goshen two years ago. I had really considered it a "nice to have but not totally necessary" option. Now, I wouldn't be without it. When we ordered our new rig, that's the first option to be ordered. I love it and would never get another rig without it. It's still a "nice to have but not totally necessary" option, but it makes my lfe so much easier when setting up (and breaking down) that I no longer considerer it an option, just a must have.

    We discussed a similar question in a recent thread.

    You might not miss what you never had. But no one who gets auto-leveling would give it up.

    If you get it you will not regret the decision. Sure makes set up a whole lot easier. Would never be with out one again.

    There are other aftermarket leveling systems available other than Level-Up.

    Didn't have it on our first BC......have it on 2nd BC......LOVE IT!!

    And, think about the, hopefully never, flat tire experience in the middle of nowhere.....lift the tires off the ground with the touch of a button for a quick change!!

    I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
