Simple;
Remove the one and a half inch block in the rear, flip the axles, rise the pin box, and lower the 5th wheel. That should just about do it.
The SuperLite was a 5th wheel as well. We pulled that with the pin box out a few holes. Im told this will work, so says the salesman, and they never lie. Actually, the bed rail now is just under 60 inches. With the rear blocks removed, and all that other crap, it should work out. Heck, just flipping the axles raises the whole trailer almost 4 inches.
Besides, if it doesn't work, well just live at TravelOn until we get a smaller truck. Or I could just get you to tow it home for me.

Here is my question. For those of you who use the ladder mounts, does the morning breeze whipping your flags around cause the rig to move all over and or the pole to hit the side of the trailer? Just wondering.

Oh for cryin' out loud...FR!!!

How the heck are ya?! Long time no "see"!

I would think that if you get some pretty good winds, and you got some good-sized flags, you could feel the rig shake- I seem to recall some Dumont days where the wind blows like a son-of-a-gun and you were lucky to have an awning left!

Fire rooster
the times we've ridden our harleys thru PHX on the way to parts east, it HAS been warm....
...and don't be too busy to stop in here.
We're always interested in hearing where that Rampage is being parked at when you go riding.

Have a great 4th!! safe!
Mike

Well hey,

The next time you come thru PHX, give me a shout. If I am off work I will saddle up the CBR, and we can ride a few miles. ( if you don't mind a ricer). If I am at the fire station you are welcome to stop by there too!!

As far as the Rampage goes, we had the second annual Father son/daughter camping trip earlier in June and it was awesome. This year we had 17 people there, which was more then twice the number of last year. Hopefully next year we will have even more. Lots of riding, fishing, bullshitting and a little beer drinking (cannot get too crazy as it is a kid event too). No major incidents and everyone had a great time. Momma and I are planning a family trip this month out of the heat, and a trip to Utah, to see my Mommy in Sept. Nothing planned for August yet but I am sure we will be going somewhere.
