Re: My 04 fix/build thread!

Re: My 04 fix/build thread!







Brake contoller in! Trailer after I got it to my top secret hiding place till easter morning, wife posing in front reluctantly. Of course my contoller didn't show in time so i had to pull it with my faterh in-laws truck

Trailer is 27 ft with one slide out. Bunks in the back corner, bath in the other back corner, couch slide out, corner kitchen counter top and queen bed in front in it's own room. Fiberglass construction so that helps with weight. Just over 5K dry so I'll have to watch how I load it but that is a good thing so I can convince the kids to leave some of the crap at home.

More pics with it all hooked up to the jeep to come soon.

I actually hooked it up and used it with the in laws truck to bring it home. Worked great. No bounding what so ever and we hid some really rough overpasses. I could have tightened it up a bit more but for the first outing I couldn't be happier. No sway that a passenger could have felt, I felt a small amount but thats just becasue I was the driver. 65mph for 40 miles and no problems.

Sway gets to be less and less with more tongue weight so after I have propane tanks filled and the front compartment loaded I shouldn't feel any. I'll take some pics when I have it hooked up Sunday.

Best part was I backed it in turning sharp and back and forth without having to unhook anything. No pops, clicks, creaks, bars falling off, nothing just backed in and unhooked. So easy!
