I think you just are stirring the pot!

Here is the truck in alt mode sitting solo. Rear wheel spacing is about the same.

Sooner or later your taste in trailers should make you consider a HDT ,do it once and be done with it, the constant merry-go -round of LGT's and their short life spans is only lining the pockets of the big 3 and draining yours.

Your money, get the Aisin/4:10's you will be good to go!

That is a really cool bicycle holder...what is the model ?

Would it bugger up the air flow or does it matter ?

Thanks

Or an MDT and not have the problems associated with a HDT... that is unless you are moving to a massively heavy 5th...

Could never recommend an MDT. Problem is none are made for cross country running. They ride rough even with air. HDTs are built from ground up for comfort. They also cost a lot more.

Swagman XTC2 I believe the model is. I built the receiver bracket. Sad but the nose of the new 5er will stick out too far so the bracket won't work any longer. I will be mounting the Swagman to the receiver on the back of the new RV.
