I've deleted several posts so let's all try to stay on topic and not personal in our posts.

Thanks for your help.

What is expensive ("$$$$$)? Those kingpins aren't cheap, and you still run the risk of hitting the cab on a hard turn. I bought my 15K Superglide for under $1000.00 with the adapter plate from Tweetys. Seemed like a fair price to me.

With extended pin box. The new trailers use as much room as possible by extending the lower front for basement storage.
My previous 95 trailer with 3" in front of the axle, I could carry 2 bikes on the truck hitch and still room between truck and trailer.

Very Fair. However, my rig needs all four tires replaced, need to drop the water tank to repair a leak, and I need to fab up some mounts to install my newly acquired CL score Onan under the rear frame rails. So, if I can determine which under bed mounts I have (another thread) I might be able to cut some costs

Nice. I have a '96 Automate, with doesn't seem to have too large of a overhang.

3" front of axle with a fixed hitch ???
