Yes, exactly. And precisely why I was thinking of just getting rid of it- it would be pretty odd for us to actually "plumb in" at a campground, where you'd use that benefit. And substantially less likely it ever happens again depending on how successful BFE is at CM. btw, your camper doesn't have one..



Steve, it was the wind that knocked it down, Gavin can't dunk yet-

Then again it's just water & tooth paste, so maybe the bucket ain't so bad..
Ya got me there

As for the sink drain...I probably didn't describe it very well but I imagine it is similar/identical to yours where the water from the sink goes into the drain, down a tube to a connection on the floor leading to an outlet outside, underneath. On that I could attach a length of hose to route it away from the trailer or into a drain but we just use a bucket to catch the water at the outlet underneath

link for weight distribution.http://www.trailercanada.com/axle_position.htm
I'm trying to figure out if can cut the front of my trailer frame and extend it to fit 2 motorcycles on the deck. Issues currently are: current deck is 24" and rated to carry 200 lbs. I want to carry my motos 260lbs each. There are 2 propane tanks in front of the deck and a big battery. My thought is to take measurements. Measure actual tonge weight. Work the math with estimated weights and location of bikes, firewood, battery, lp tank. To see if this is even possible. Getting rid of 1 propane tank. saves 25 lbs. I've thought about upgrading to an E2, but that's a bunch more money and I don't want the bigger camper just bigger deck. I *think* I'm trying to add 24-30" of deck and 350? Lbs additional weight over the current max of 200 lbs. My camper is currently in storage, so at this point I'm looking for feedback? I've searched mud and some other pop-up sites. Also I'm planning on replacing the 2" ball to something more "off-road" thoughts or suggestions? pintle is off-road (I think?)

Me thinks your biggest issue will be tongue weight...520lbs of bikes plus propane tanks, battery, etc. that far out on the "arm" will drastically change things.

Farnham, what about putting the bikes or one bike on the back to balance out the weight? Does it have a receiver hitch on the rear? Add one and get one of that moto racks for a receiver then beef up the front for a single moto there.

Because I also think putting them both up front will screw up your tongue weight unless you add more behind the trailers axle, a lot more.
