Must be nice to have that trailer buddy. they do work well.

I can tell you that I pulled much harder and left my friends 2007 Travel Supreme with the ISL 425 emissions equipped behind.

I have changed out my air filter to a larger one and I have the Aero muffler. Can't say it helped in the mountains but I did pick up a little MPG's on the highway!
Thanks. You have a nice looking coach and I have a special place for LJ's as well.

The last two years of heading to Ouray with the Jeep JKU and the Harley and my son's Buell loaded in the trailer we were weighing right @ 48,500. It pulled good but you can never have enough power.

Mike.

I have been driving from seattel to palm springs for years. I know I am way over length. I always go the speed limit and have had numerous police cars next to me but never stopped. My fingers are crossed.

Zman,
I see you chose the Trailer Toad to carry the tongue weight. Great choice and thank you ! ;-)

Here is a friend who is about 80' as well. 500 gallon jet fuel tank in the attic above the tongue for fuel for his two jest dragsters he runs at air shows across the country. 4000 lbs tongue weight, none on his bus.

Hope we can run into each other one day.

I'm surprised he's never been treated as a commercial vehicle.

With 500 gals of jet fuel I would think it should have placards

(
DOT Placard, 1863 , Fuel, Aviation, Turbine Engine)

for hazmat (
454 kg (1,001 lbs.) aggregate gross weight or more must be placarded

Here's our contribution to this, nothing special. When our son came back from Afghanistan he was sent to Ft. Lewis Wa. He was going to be there for a couple of months on some medical rehab stuff and wanted his Bronco to drive so we took it to him.

Thanks Mike, I do have the Jeep desease. The Jeep on the trailer is my wife's TJ, she has the Jeep desease too, it is a very capable Jeep.

Funny you mention the LJ, I should be done building mine by the end of the year.

I love the wheelin i Colorado. Quray, Silverton, Salida, Empire, love them all and here in Idaho is a fun place too.

I hope to wheel with ya someday. Maybe in Moab in May. Will see.

Have a good day!

So I am assuming you have the ISL engine? How much do you weigh total with the trailer and how does it handle the weight especially on the grades?

Mike.

Yes its an ISL. Trailer is 21k and the coach works great. Honestly the trailer toad makes it so you dont feel it because of no toungue weight on the coach. It can't help me on the steep grades though LOL. It acutally is not too bad on the grades. Coming from Seattle to So Cal the slowest I went was 40mph through the passes.
