    Re: Building vs Buying?

    I think in answering your question, you also have to ask if you have the appetite for a build. I am far from the best mechanic in the world but I can get basic stuff done.

    A few years ago I...

  8. Re: Charging 2nd battery in vehicle as well as battery in trailer

    Folks Mikevr is 77. I would not want to be lugging and putting out any kind of solar panel at that age. Trailer rooftop would be ideal.

    Personally all I would want is a flattish site and a long drop. Route suitable for an off road trailer. The more self sufficient I am the more I enjoy.

    It does not appear that you are going to be able to move that axle due to the wheel wells. The two things that I would try would be to use a drop plate to lower the nose and to fit a stabilizer.

    Re: Bush Caravan Sway

    A rule of thumb is to have the axle 60% behind the foremost part of the box, not including the tongue. Just looking at the pics that axle looks to be further forward than that.
