Granted, that does not mean driving on narrow streets or backing up.

I learned how the trucks maneuver from the CDL manual and trucker friends. Narrow streets are fine with my 42 + toad. Don't need to back up! Might make "2 lefts = a one right turn", but I get along just fine.
Steve, does this make sense?

When we are pulling the stacker the overhang of the coach is almost equal to the distance from the hitch to the axles of the stacker. So the stacker is tracks just slightly inside the circumference the rear wheels on the coach make.

The result is if the coach will go through the stacker will have room.

We generally come through several times a year. We snowbird in Yuma so travel down in the fall and up in the spring plus go skiing in SLC in February. We are planning to travel to FCCC in Gaffney this fall so it will not be until February.

We carry a couple motorcycles, a SUV, ski box, stuff etc.

interesting analogy but I think we are missing some facts about the air suspension parts.
You mentioned the leveling valve constantly adjusting as the coach is traversing a washboard type road.


That's not actually true. All leveling valves have a built in delay that eliminates the rapid valve actuation.












Shock absorbers not air pressure control how well the wheels react over rough roads as air pressure is increased for heavy or lighter loads.


Air ride is superior for ride in every way except in $$$$$$
