Thanks. I appreciate that.

Now that I have gotten out of racing, I have built a 2011 Jeep Wrangler from the axles up and my wife and I enjoy that when we travel. Either flat-towing or along with the Harley Ultra Classic in the enclosed trailer. I do miss racing but I enjoy playing off-road in the Jeep and I think my wife enjoys it more than sitting at the dragstrip in the coach as well.

Mike.

We have raced at a few of the tracks you listed when we were running Quick Rod several years back. Now, we stay pretty close, as I am out of town so much for work. We hit Farmington Dragway, Piedmont Dragway, and Rockingham (all in NC). We do go to the big events at Richmond and Bristol.

This year, we plan to race more as my son will be starting too. This is his car....

My buddy has me all paranoid about pulling my enclosed trailer saying the rear swing of the MOHO could crunch the corner of the MOHO. I haven't hooked up to see what it is going to do yet. Any insights? I need a bigger hitch for one thing, and possibly a hitch extender. Confused.

Photos

I don't have any photos with the car; in fact I don't have any photos of the car on this computer.... 28' Classic with a 6' tongue, golf cart, and a 70 Mustang - plus a hoarders collection of parts and tools! pulled by a 99 Exec with an M-11. we haven't really pulled the car anywhere with the motor home yet - just here locally. Used a Ford PS with a CO Camper for years - We are much more comfortable at the track now!

More to it than that, what is the rear axle overhang of the Motor Home, How long it the trailer tongue/ Do you have experience pulling a trailer? Most problems occur when backing up.

It is amazing most people do not have a good picture of the MH, trailer and car, I don't either, but expect to fix that this summer (if it ever gets here).

It is also amazing what a difference it makes to have a comfortable place to retreat to at the track. To be able to stay over night at the track and be set up the next day before the gate opens for those that stayed at Motels.

I know! We haven't been real good at the photo thing for the last few years.. If it wasn't for getting a smartphone I would have none at all. and - its hard to get it all in a photo at the track with how long we are and the pits full. Like you I am going to try harder this year... may have a different car in the photos too just to make it interesting. I stayed in motels years ago before we got the camper and that was a real pain - between worrying about the car and trailer and having to get rolling / check out early etc., now I get to say - honey, whats for breakfast!

In addition to what Glenn commented on, most of us are using trailers that have been ordered with what is referred to as an "RV Tongue" by many trailer manufactures. It is merely an extended tongue to keep the coach and front of the trailer separated a little further to avoid such a crunch. Both of my enclosed trailers have had this and my first coach even though gas was sought after due to its longer wheelbase, which equated to better weight distribution and less rear overhang.

Agreed. I have always been real good about taking pictures of the coach, trailer and the toys, but never all in the same pictures.

I also agree about the retreat. Number one reason we went with coach vs. motels as well and then we got hooked and I can't seem to stay in a motel/hotel now if my life depended on it. Only way to travel whether vacationing or racing is looking through that big ole windshield and seeing the country.

Mike.
