Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Here is an update to our story.

We have been in the coach for over 4 months now, and we love it more each day. We have made 3 trips all pulling the stacker trailer with no problems, that coach and 500hp Cummings pulls it like a dream. Just a few projects as of now, we replaced the LR chairs and foot stools with new theater recliner chairs that the foot rest folds under and out of the way. As for the stacker trailer several changes. I added a storage deck above the Harley's (8.5'x11'x3'10" head room) deck with grating and another shelve in the rear above the back door for welder, air compressor, pressure washer, motorcycle lift, etc. In between the two storage areas at the top left I added a 14' long clothes rod for extra hanging clothes. My wife said how are you going to cover the clothes to them clean. So I had a fabric shop make me a Orange/black cover with a 12" clear window and zippers to open up just the section you want to get to. I connected it to the ceiling and wall walls with turn snaps allowing easy removal to section or take it down. Next project is to install the new "Wheel Well Cabinet" (91" wide 50" tall x 8" deep) for all my tools. The big rolling tool cabinet is in the way of the car to load. It's got to go.

If anyone is the Houston area stop by and see us. Just message me for directions.

WOW

That rig reminds me of a CW song about
"Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around"
My rig is 53 ft. long when all hooked up and it is long enough for me.
You will be illegal in some states.

Enjoy it!!!

78 total. FYI most states allows an annual non commercial over length permit. But it pulls so good you forget it's back there. I can make square corners on subdivision streets with out taking out the stop sign or putting a wheel off the payment. LOL. Actually low hanging trees are my biggest worry. Last week I ordered a 4 camera system. One one each side in the back, one zoomed in on the trailer cupler and one inside looking at the Harleys.

Nice Bus, perfect setup, Blue Beacon will be your best friend, we are not as long as yours, but close 5 feet off, ( ours is 42' plus a 26' trailer) I tested out and got a Class B CDL in my state so California wont give us crap about length. Other than that we have driven all over the country with no issues about length, I also put in a Camera above the door in the trailer so when I back up I can see what is behind me, and I have put a nice stereo system up front where I can switch cameras, I recommend it for anyone towing a trailer, behind their bus.


Enjoy your travels, they will be an adventure every day.

Bought a 4 camera system, came in yesterday. 1 frt camera aimed at hitch, 1 inside aimed at the Harleys, and 1 on each side of the rear door. Giving me full rear view from side to side. With the night vision light on all.
