Love it!!
I'm usually not a glass pack guy, but no room for anything else under the body between the frame and rocker panels.

Very cool either way.
Thanks! It's my Hobby. I build 4x4s and wheel them, sell some keep some, part some out... This one is a winter wheeler for the snow. I've got 33s on it, a locker in the rear and a LS front. Plus a set of "off-road" tire chains for all 4 tires.

I've built 2 4x4 vans, two pickups, 2 broncos, and this Wagonner so far. O, and some mods to the Excursion too. Lol

The 6.0l is for when you're going home to see your wife.
The 7.3 is for when you're going off to see her parents.

Looks like he has a rack built for them on the camper. Plus least amount of WT behind the camper the better IMO.

If you place all the weight in front of the wheels on the boat it will lift the tongue on the TT. Light tongue weight will cause sway in the TT and if you cause sway in the TT you will then cause sway in the boat.

The old playground game of "crack the whip" at 60 MPH.
I would think other than where Andy has the kayaks the only place would be the top of the TT and then you have access and clearance concerns.

I know all about the double trailer senecio and where to put the WT.

Very good explanation for those that don't know though!



That's 3 ATV behind there.

Should have quoted Gerry (Gigger). He pulls a fiver, weight don't mean jack.

Our last trip I had all the yaks in the boat. The boat was getting quite heavy and while I am not worried about the boat trailer taking the weight I was more worried about the rear bumper/frame of the TT taking the weight. Most TT's say there limit is 100 pounds on the rear bumper, mine has a sticker stating 200 pounds was the limit. I have done quite a bit of fab work to the rear of my TT to reinforce the rear bumper and hitch setup but still I worry about the frame of the TT after the wheels.

Plus also like mentioned it is best to have as much weight as possible up front as close as possible to the tow vehicle. As you can see my X doesn't squat and it has no spring helpers or weight distributing hitch.

So the Ex keeps plugging along, and as long as she is dependable, I can't complain.

I did find out today that I will be able to keep feeding her as I am going to be promoting to a higher rank on Sept. 2. On that day, I will be pinning on the rank of Chief Petty Officer, E-7, and for those in the Coast Guard and the Navy, that is kind of a big thing. All I can say is that I am honored to make that rank, and my Ex is grateful for the pay raise that comes with it.
