I like that you haven't put a queen bed in it. That deck and rack are also really nice.
Does that rack make it significantly tougher to turn without swinging the back end into something?
What kind of fuel economy does it get?
The rear rack really isn't a big deal, you get used to driving it, and using the mirrors helps tremendously.
I have calculated I get about 10mpg, which isn't bad at all for something this big. It's comparable to anything else of its size. Please give me a call if you feel like asking any other questions, I'd be happy to tell you all about it.
