Paul, the tailer is 27 ft and the tounge is another 3 ft. If I remember it is rated at 15000 LBS.

Kyle, there are disk brakes on the rear two axles. I would think that with the front axle able too turn freely you would not want brakes on that axle. If they grab different it could throw you around a little.

Mike wants to do an article on the trailer we are very busy the next two months but will try to get an article together. It will have pictures of the front axle and the lift I built inside.

Thank You Wayne

Hi Paul.  That is an updated version of one that I show on the page I had mentioned previously.  I will try to update that page.

I tried the link I posted earlier and there seemed to be a problem.  Here it is again:  http://www.rvsafetysystems.com/Trailer%20Towing.htm

The issue that has been mentioned about this option is the very heavy loading when the bus goes through a big dip.
