Glen: That is an awesome looking trailer. Just gorgeous. You sure have more snow than we do. (Not complaining) We've had a ton of very cold, however. We should have our trailer in about a week. Not as beautiful as yours but we'll put a picture on when we get it hooked up and down in warmer weather.

Out of curiosity 45 foot RV & 32 foot car hauler would be at least 77 feet so have you and any problems with the length - has law enforcement looked twice at you?

Maybe a little longer than a week, have to air the new carpet out first, right?

My oldest son took a couple of courses at the Hot Rod Institute in Rapid City. Very cold but surprisingly very little snow. The crossing gates along the expressway lead me to believe that you guys go a lot of snow.

I like the looks of the trailer also. I looked for a long time for a used one but found none that had the height I needed for the Jeep

What lift and tires in your Jeep? I assume a CJ7 by the year, I don't think I saw you post a picture of it in my thread about Jeeps.

I haven't seen a thread on Jeep here. I really only read, the fleetwood owner's, Class a, and vintage categories, steer me in the right direction

It is a survivor CJ-7, 2.5 inch lift on 31 tires

you can see the build here

I have always towed an open trailer with our Rock Crawler and RZR on it. Total length is 68' I have never been stopped for anything. We are looking at a 26' enclosed trailer that would put us at 75'. I have hesitated, thinking the extra length and bulk of an enclosed trailer could attract more attention and a possible citation or take out of service ticket. However it would be nice to get the toys under cover. I have seen a lot of combos here that imply there is not much to worry about. I never go into CA, but mainly run the states between AZ, UT, WI and TX. What has been everyones experience in that section of the country??

We actually can and do get a lot of snow but for some reason, it our part of the state, we've so far been getting missed. I'm sure our time is coming; hopefully after we get out of here. We also had to custom-order our trailer with a higher ceiling. Happy travels Glenn. Maybe we'll see you on the road somewhere.

I would think the air would want to get under the bow of the boat and lift it off the trailer when going down the road????

If you look closely you will see two red tie down straps on the side in the side window area plus two more you can't see further back. The straps hook to the bunks the boat sets on. 8 total. Many miles traveled with no issues.

Granted we are only 72' OAL with our little 40' coach and 26' Haulmark Edge enclosed trailer but we are based in Utah and routinely run Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Nevada, Arizona and Wyoming without any issues or even given a second thought.

Mike.
