Picture of the air ride seat I put in.

Proof it made it, we do not have palm trees in Kansas.



Main Street during bike week.




The Nina and Pinta were in port so we took the family to check them out.


Had to get a shot of the burb on the beach on the opposite side of the country from where it was tagged. I am pretty sure they do not let you drive on the beach in Cali as it will kill some hermitcrabmitebug that is near extinction.

I am not from cali. My friend is stationed out there and he drove out the bub for me that I have. I have not had a chance to tag it here yet. But to answer your question, 210HP DT466 and an MT643.

Great pics, would you mind to take the time to do a write up of your air to electric brake control write up?
I will sticky it under drive lines and buy you a beer or soda when we meet

Also thanks for picture of the burb loaded "correctly" on trailer....I see so many loads that I cringe when I think of tounge wt...lol

Great job and great pictures!

I can do a write up for the brake controller. It really was pretty simple to install IMO.

As for loading the trailer. My hitch will carry 2700lbs of tongue weight, which I know is much more then most. I positioned the burb like that to attempt to help the aerodynamics of this 60' train. No proof if it really helped or not.

My rear axle was just below 50% capacity when she was empty. I know I did not put an extra 6 tons into her. Then I have self leveling rear air bags on top of that. So I would be really hard pressed to overload the girl right now.

On long trips like this I use chains and straps. After having the burb hooked up I will be modifying her to make that easier in the future. It was not the most ideal way to strap her down but it was all I had to work with. The trailer is also a 10k unit so I had plenty of margin with her. You would have never known she was back there when driving it minus the extra weight and length.

The kids all wound up sleeping in hammocks. They though it was awesome and it saved me a bunch of floor space.
