   So put a trailer hitch on the back yer 20 foot trailer and pull yer toad.

   I had a 16x8 enclosed that I used to move down here. While several trips I had it loaded quite heavy, I never noted any big change in fuel economy. But like ya say, if your only on vacation why ya need a big trailer behind a big ol Bus.

Toys!          but I do agree.  I do leave them at home now. Just rent or play with someone else's. Have pulled 24ft Stacker behind 40ft bus never stopped. Secret: never draw attention to ones self.  Reckless behavior will do that. Make sure all lights are working.  Blend in.-----correction-----  Have been stopped. Reason-- Where did you get your trailer?    Bob

I pull an enclosed trailer because it has all my hobby stuff in it.  We have a 4x8 trailer with rocket launch system on it in there.  We also carry an ATV at times.  We also usually have a number of rockets on board.  There simply isn't enough room in the luggage bays for all of our stuff. 

We're either camping in an open field or on a dry lake bed.  No campgrounds.

I want to work with alt fuels and I need a space approx 4X8X6.  I also want a full complement of hand and light power tools withing reach.  Full timing, I want wardrobe closets.  As I need a 4X4 transportation vehicle I planned to get a trailer large enuf to accommodate all that stuff and the truck.  I came up with 28 foot with built-ins.  Plan was to move the bus to a central local and sight see with the truck and possibly even over-night camp, etc.  Good chance that a couple scooters would find their way into our stable.  And then there is the porn filming studio...probably shouldn't have mentioned that last...

That's why we were going to include a trailer....and a big one.

  John, you seem to surprise me every other day or so. You may have liked a house we looked at a couple years back. It had a beautifully finished basement in stone, and this room. It was a small room with no windows, but red and white tile floor and mirrored walls. With a lone chair, and a brass pole. Almost as creepy as a repo house we looked at with the tanning beds and the hidden camera mounts downstairs. Wondered why it was repoed, lol
