It is one hell of a boat ramp, like you said Scott("Monster Ramp")
and there is for sure a ton of concrete in it! It is the largest boat ramp I had ever seen

I'm guessing that the coach rode level and the front end wasn't trying to come up off the ground? It would be interesting to get the weight fully loaded and towing the boat. The tongue weight of the boat is probably at or below the 500 lb. limit.

what I noticed was when it is out of fuel and no water is when the rear seems to drop about 1/2-3/4 not quiet an inch...
it rides so good you forget it moving...

running it full of fuel & water or empty doesn't seem to effect anything...
same power and mpg...rides smooth full...

I would love to take my 22' tri-toon behind my 33D, but all the trailer parking areas I've seen are a chore to navigate with just a pickup truck. Does your lake have a giant parking lot where you can park your 60' + of trailer and RV when out on the lake?

parker, powel, mead, havasu,... all do....

you'd be surprised at how good the 33d get around.. with only 208 wheel base it seems to go every where I do with the van towing....
and everywhere I went with the 26'r

sofar... take away the cost of the rig ,.. it has been cheeper to run the excursion 33d and have some luxury when we get there...

hate to say it but.... my wife was right...

then the pontoon to go exploring..

been boating and rv'n my whole life....

I remember back in the day when rv'rs where nice to each other and respectful..

seems that we were more friendly and helpful to each other, always said How -do ,or waved when passing..... now it seems the thing to do is get under someones skin and burrow in..

I still say "HOWDY" and still wave at passers by... guess I'm ol school..

I always say howdy. Always have. Don't care if others respond or not. And the only way someone gets under my skin is if I let em... or am looking to burn off a little frustration.
