I didn't pull this one myself, they had it ready for me when I got there.

You should see the shit this guy has there though, he's been buying from municipality's for years.

You name it,he probably has it.

If you get that thing anywhere near an airport don't stop unless you want the bed full of luggage.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

I thought about it a little bit but Then I'd be tempted to overload it.

I'd get a dump trailer first,which I'd do soon if I could make some $$$$$ with it.

Time for an update.

I haven't been totally idle for the last month but not much has happened worthy of pictures.

I did go shopping yesterday for supplies to complete the bed and plan to get that ball rolling this week.


This is the space that stuff will fill.

Here's the new engine waiting to go in.

Went racing twice over the last month too, the bus works great for day trips not needing the camper.

I'll be pulling the camper for the first time in this configuration next week and am excited to see how it performs.

I should be able to get much more out of this thing than was possible with the other transmission.

I'm still convinced it's geared too low and am resonably sure that it could pull a lower numbered gear ratio and still perform towing the camper.
