If any of you know Scott, it's in immaculate condition just like everything else he's owned. We can barely even feel we're towing it behind our coach and stops good too.
I don't know Scott personally but I have exchanged information with him on this and another forum and he seems the type to have nice stuff and take care of it.

It is nice to see other people appreciate that.

Great. Happy you were able to step into something that you could design and have built the way you wanted it. Great looking King Aire. But then so was the Entegra Cornerstone.

Here's my rig. Not a good pic showing the MH and trailer. It gets what we need to and from our winter spot in Naples.

Well we have an older unit and this past summer used a friends enclosed trailer. they are now hooked on traveling with their own RV they just bought...so we bought a small trailer for us to pull now...used but paid for....nothing real big...but mine..

Nice looking trailer and certainly will do the job.

Gkgeigr. Does the front shield on your trailer keep the road grim off the vehicle? Is it a feather lite trailer?

The shield is call a stone shield, but the car stays about as clean as if you were driving it. The trailer is made by Aluma.

Just a curious ?
What would it take, length of car (toad)19.6 I would like to have it be a enclosed trailer no thrills type just to haul my classic car with us. If possible I would use a "Trailer Toad" behind my PA. I have been thinking about it since we bought both 3 years ago. Seriously since I found the "Trailer Toad".
It' snowing again and nothing better to do... Just curious to hear from OP that do this.
Thanks,s tb

I didn't use the trailer toad although they look like a great product, however, I towed a 24' enclosed trailer around most of the western U.S. with our first motorhome. Racing and sand toys mainly but combined trailer and contents were right at 8500 pounds. I custom built the trailer hitch and tied it up under the coach about 3-4'.

Mike.

Here is our first motorhome. Don't have any pictures of it hooked up with the trailer. 1984 30' Travelcraft on a GM P30 chassis. 454 cubic inch carbureted engine/TH400 transmission, Gear Vendors OD unit, Doug Thorley headers.

Those bumpers sure are shinny, I am going to have to pull mine and polish them, even if I have been warned that it is a difficult task.

If you need the trailer toad or not will really depend on how robust the rear frame is. I would also suggest a beefy hitch. Be safe, make sure the frame can take the stress, make the receiver stronger than needed, make the hitch (ball) stronger than that. That way you will tow with confidence, never a worry if there might be a problem down the road.

In my set up, I called the chassis manufacture first and was asured that the frame was MORE than strong enough, I put on a 16,000 pound reciever, use a solid one piece american built hitch and ball to pull a 12,000 capable trailer which might have a total weight of 8,000 pounds. Everything is over engineered.

I tow my 24 ft enclosed trailer to haul my T Bucket or 1926 Model T Coupe with a 2005 HR. The trailer weighs 5000 lbs & has about 60,000 miles behind my Class C first then this 30 ft HR with no problems related to the tow....... I am just now started on the third set of tires for
the trailer.....lol....

Nice, I wish someone could explain to me why trailer tires have such a short life span, they are expensive. I could run "D"s but like to over engineer so I run "E"s
