Nice looking setup!

Hey, we stop at Roy's to and from the River as we enjoy the scenic drive along Route 66 (as opposed to taking the 40 all the way). Mainly to use the First Class Restrooms.

You have some nice set ups there for your rig. What's best about the Colorado River area is boating in the summer and playing in the desert in the winter.

I Love Our Car Hauler

We worried about parking a car hauler, and have experienced almost no problems during our first year of traveling.

What a luxury, having a clean and dry convertible to use at our destination!

Plus, we carry a canoe, bikes, a bike trailer for the dogs, misc storage items that would otherwise crowd our basements.

Best of all, we are no longer restricted from backing up!

Indeed, the more people we meet doing this, the more evidence we see that law enforcement personnel respect well-maintained equipment operated in a safe and courteous fashion; for that, owners are given a little slack when it comes to combination length.

We have a 20' trailer behind a 45' Beaver; legal, if you ignore the distance between the two...

I wonder what made those black marks in the road?

Very nice most people miss the fact that a trailer makes a great garage when not being pulled behind the Motor Home. You cannot build a garage for the price of a good trailer.

Great looking rig! How do you like your new trailer? What kind of tongue weight do you have when loaded? Is it a 10,000# trailer?
I had them build me one this year also......nice towing trailers.

How long is your trailer? Did you order it with an car escape door in the far side? What is the rating of the axle?

We ordered ours,with a car escape door, makes easier to load/unload the car. We also ordered the trailer with 5200lbs axles, 3500 lbs was standard.

We have a similar setup; a 20 foot trailer box with a 5 foot V nose. It's the perfect setup.

I had to custom build my trailer and got exactly what I wanted. Beefed up the frame, tires, axles and all hinges. I really like the front ramp door in the V nose so I can get the bike out without unloading everything.

Love the trailer and had it about a year now. I don't know what the tongue weight is and yes, it's a 10K# trailer.

Yes we got the car escape door but it's barely useable as my wife's Caddilac's door is barely high enough to open throught the escape door. I also have the V-Nose ramp door which is nice for unloading the bike and have the 2 "fueling" doors which are not worth the money as I've never used them yet.

I've also added 30A-120V service with breakers and 6 - 4' ft flourescent lights and various outlets.

Nice setup.

Do you have the Cummins ISL425 engine? How much does the trailer weigh loaded and how does the coach handle it?

Mike.

The trailer pulls really well. We have the ISL 450. You can feel the trailer is there when you first hook up. Acceleration is a bit slower and mileage drops slightly. Last tank we averaged 8.2 mpg. Only have 6,000 on the odometer. Handles hills quite well.

We carry a SUV, two Gold Wings (one triked) and a Yamaha VStar. We have the 16' lift.

The trailer weighs 13,000 loaded, tongue weight is 800. Height is an issue as the SUV is tall so we have to take the windshields off of the bikes. Trailer is all aluminum so curb weight is 6350. Have 6,000 lb axles.
