If I was you, I would consider a Trailer Toad for this setup. Even though it is an open trailer the leverage from dips, bridge entrances, etc are going to be hard on the frame, frame extensions and especially the slide out opening framework.

I towed with almost the exact same coach, before we built our first Trailer Toad, and welded braces inside the frame rails, braced the hitch and when we towed in the rain it was downright scary stopping as the front brakes wanted to lock up and pulse on the ABS. Originally, the Toad was built for Class C coaches as they needed the most assistance in rear frame support.

While the Trailer Toad is not cheap, they hold their value well and you will not tear up the floor, frame or sidewalls of an expensive coach if you use one. Besides handling benefits, protecting your investment is where the Trailer Toad does it's serious work.

Love the ol MOPARS!!!

Very nice setup. Did you stay at the Goulding's RV Park and how did you fit. We were in an end site about middle row two years ago with our coach/trailer and we were hanging our the back of the site and the front of the coach was sticking out the front a little more than I liked. They would have liked us to unhook prior to parking but I like staying connected. Maybe I should have dropped the trailer in their area up above because I couldn't relax the entire time we were there worrying if someone was going to take my mirrors off the coach or tag the rear of the trailer.

Very nice setup!

I might suggest to Mike to purchase a couple orange cones to keep in the trailer for circumstances when you might hang out a little of your space.

Yep, covered. I bought about six of them several years ago that I carry in the trailer. I had two orange cones placed at each end of the rig but I was still nervous. Actually that same trip someone had grabbed one of my cones to place next to a water spigot that wouldn't shut off. We returned one afternoon to find one of our cones missing. I went looking and found it a few sites down. I think someone thought maybe they belonged to the rv park or something.

I have only used them a few times as I am generally fortunate enough to call ahead and request long enough sites, but they were a little off on their measurements or they measured from middle of one road to the middle of the other road rather than just site length.

I even set up the cones when I pull out in front of my house before departing. For some reason it drives the wife nuts but I know how some of my neighbors drive through our neighborhood with their heads firmly placed up their asses.

Mike.

Mike ... we did stay at Gouldings ... they put in the first row behind the store ... fit nicely hooked up .... hate to have to drop just for an overnite ... we're right at 70 ft ... so it can be challenging .... at our next stop, they didn't have pull throughs ... but let us back into one of the bigger spots ... we hung out in the front a bit ... but the park was not busy ... so no problem .....

Trailers you tow behind your MH / Pictures of the whole rig

We took the trailer to Yosemite with the car, kayaks and bikes stuffed in it. It worked great!

Glen,
Trying to figure out how to get a Facebook picture to this site. My good friends truck is overall, bumper to bumper 48.5' and his 5' tongue on his 34' three-car stacker equals 87.5' overall length. The rig is a Freightliner truck conversion, twin screw, 600HP and it's all painted a single Charcoal metallic, no stripes. Very unique!!
Dual axle air-ride trailer but... the tires are 22.5" truck tires like the truck uses.

I'm not sure you can, I know you cannot link it. You might be able to save the picture to your computer and than attach it to a post as a JPG.

You could do a screen print, edit it with paint and then post it, I know that works. Send me the link to the facebook page and I will work on it. I do not do facebook any more, but my wife does.

Nice looking setup.

Just out of curiosity, how much does your trailer weigh loaded?

Mike.
