Ed, i dont know the manufacture of the lights, I think they are attached with a 3M tape? I actually told my shop to put LED lights on and thats what I got! They come with a remote and colors can be changed etc...

What do you have in the Trailer? I am looking at something very similar and keep windering If I should go with a shorter (and more legal-ish by length) stacker or a easier to manage trailer like the one you have.

This is great and really making me want one! Hubby likes these best of all but we thought they were out of our budget...seems they aren't

I think the best selections and pricing info is often on www.racingjunk.com. They have a section for Truck Conversions there. Good luck.

ie2special, have you gone to any car races and walked around the paddock areas? That's where you're going to find lots of Truck Conversions. Most of the guys will be busy working on their race cars but lots of family members will talk about their rigs and likely invite you in for a look.

Nice Looking rig, is the I shift smooth on its shifts or do you feel it throttle up and down?

ShowHauler

Folks,

We are buying a custom-build from Angie at Big Power Coaches in Hickory, NC. She is terrific.

Ours is 45' with 2 slides.

Lonnie is the sales manager at ShowHauler and is also very nice to discuss options.

Mine is a Freightliner Cascadia with a DD16 engine and 13 speed AUTO.

Go to the ShowHauler Facebook page and you'll find thousand's of photos. Also some great video's on travel channel and youtube.

I got to drive a buddy's '09 Volvo 770 with D16 and ishift for a short test drive. It was set up for hauling his 5th wheel and Smart on the deck. We didn't have the trailer or Smart on it when I drove it. But, his bed was pretty substantial, large generator too. I don't know how much it weighed but more than bob-tailing with just a tractor, and less than a fully built Truck Conversion. The trans was incredibly smooth. No jerking whatsoever when it shifted. I suspect it would be just as smooth, if not smoother, on a heavy T/C.

Considering ShowHauler

We are looking at Showhaulers and working with Lonnie...will be a motorhome 45 feet and a stacker to attend conventions and show our software at conventions...

Lonnie and ShowHauler have impressed me the most...

We will want to also occasionally stay at rv sites. Will carry two vehicles and booth equipment in stacker toter.

Most campgrounds have other areas to park the toter and we are willing to pay extra.

Any advice on the chassis brand and options, options on the Showhauler coach and issues with your toter or Class 8 motor home at campgrounds.

Subscribed to the Big Rig website and expect to spend some time in parking lots, rest areas, truck stops, etc. to save money.

Will buy new.

Your favorite transmission (auto) and engine.

Thanks for your advice.
