    Theres 2 TV's, the big one you see in the console and one in the rear bedroom. There is also a rearview monitor above the drivers seat with a camera that points out the rear.

    Its 35' long....Yea...I was thinking 6 44" Swampers is going to set me back a couple $$$ /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    Maybe I can crank up the pressure in the airbags to get a 4" lift /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    I paid $10K less for this than my 2002 TransAm /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Dont know whats going to hurt worse, filling the 100 gal gas tank or replacing those deep cycles when the time comes /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Ya know what I don't understand and maybe someone here knows?

    Why on every bus-like vehicle I've ever seen with 2 rear axles, do the rims on the front rear axle go in, while the rims on the far rear axle go out???? Does that actually affect anything, or is it just a bus thing?

    The rear "Tag" axle just carry's the additional load if needed. I can adjust the pressure on the Tag to provide additional support or lift to level it.

    The vehicle does not carry a spare tire, the reat Tag and front wheels are interchangeable if you get a flat.

    so.... the rearmost axle doesn't really do anything??? the wheels that go in are stronger than the ones that stick out??????????????????????????

    Chuck, so how many times have you made the beast-with-two-backs in that thing? /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Capman - That axle just there to support weight, it's not a drive axle... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Dude, that's awesome! I'd love to have something like that.

    So, $10,000 less than your car, huh? That puts it at about how much? /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I have also seen on alot of those rigs, not sure about this one, but that rear most axle is also a steer axle at the flick of a switch to aid in turning that long monster, similar or just like some busses.

    It does, it carries the excess load weight in the rear.
    I can adjust the pressure in the rear airbags from the drivers seat to give it more downforce lifting the rear of the vehicle. Just like the ones on the back of cement trucks.
