Well, at least you left room to upgrade to a triple axle some day.

That would look great parked out in the GR desert. Guest bed...?

Awesome....no worries, I'm working on a deal right now and not sure if I'm gonna pull the trigger. If so, I'll need the bike hauled up from Tejas, so still could work...I will definitely keep you in mind and THANKS MAN!

Dude, I really wish I knew you better! There's all kinds of emasculating comments coming to mind, essentially since now I'm totally jealous because I sleep on the ground when I camp!

Nice rig! Let me know if you need someone to borrow it!

Nice rig! Is that a 30 footer? That will make life a bit better for all the family.

I was gonna make fun of you for needing creature comforts and not sleeping in the dirt, but then I remembered you did that whole solo Baja thing, so I backed off.

It's 33 ft so really it's small by toyhauler standards. It was hard to find one under 38ft with a separate garage for the toys. That was a requirement since most of my friends bikes like to mark their territory on the trailer ride to and from riding.

Hick- I did need to creature comforts. The house in ensenada was on the beach and so was the house in la paz. There just happened to be a few miles between them.

Plenty of room for guests. Sleeps 7 in beds has a fuel station, air compressor, remote search light to locate your lost friends and all the other shit you don't really need like a shiter, shower, stove, heat and a/c.

It definitely makes asking the wife to bring the kids and go camping with 25 degrees nights a little easier.

Nice new moving van!

I had to get a new truck as my TH has killed 2 gassers now... My reasoning was the same- the wife enjoys going much more with some creature comforts.

I wish I could put it on my business. If I did then whoever pulled it would need a cdl. Its bs.

Old farts can go buy huge rv's and pull a trailer but if its for business and over 10k trailer or 26 gvw you need a cdl. Horseshit.

Rant over.

New toy hauler-check gas tank supports

Nice rig. I bought a tow behind Gearbox last spring and had to work through some problems not the least of which was a broken fuel tank support. I can only describe Fleetwoods effort at securing the fuel tank as "cheesy". This led to paranoid visions of a fireball going down the highway, you know tank drops down to pavement, pavement grinds hole in tank, sparks ignite fuel, wind fans flames, you get the picture. So you might want to consider some reinforcement to their supports. Happy trails.

I actually didn't mean it *that* way. Since I bought mine my BIL has thought of it as his own personal moving trailer. Had to tell him no when he moved down near Hick in Tejas.

Ex wife too. If you run into her please do Not tell her how to get back to Utah!
(she is easy to spot; just look for a woman that has a hump and looks like Ernest Borgnine with tits.)
