Thanks Dave, wasn't sure about the aerodynamic effects of the shell. I am going to look into a bed cover of some sort, maybe I'll make one. I gotta figure out what I am going to do about fuel storage in the bed for diesel/bio/SVO first.
As for the trailer is a stacker. It has a bedroom area upstairs in the front for the boy. From about 6feet back from the front to about 5 feet forward of the back the upstairs is a large ramp that hinges at the front. There is a hoist that lifts it up. On the ramp we store dirtbikes and eventually a Waverunner. Downstairs we currently have a Rhino, but it has enough room for a Jeep or rock crawler(I helped a coworked move his Dodge Grand Caravan in it). The trailer also has a 5.5Kw Generator, full shower(with plenty of room), toilet(with room to take care of business), kitchenette with sink and stove, and a microwave. I am still working on insulation, paneling, some wiring upgrades, bar with kegerator, music and some storage and furniture. Its basically custom and is a blank canvas. We also have a 22' long awning on the side with a full room enclosure, and an awning out back with a full room enclosure and cables to hold the rear door level for our dining room.
Its a HELL of a load and drag so every little bit helps with mileage. I need to put in my 6L CAC
, 4" exhaust, fix some leaks, and save up for new injectors. I may also need HPOP
. I have talked about a lift, but I know that is completely counter productive. I would really like a fully linked air suspension I could lift and lower, but thats too much work right now. When it comes down to it my truck has 237K on it and tows the trailer quite well. I just need to upgrade a few things.
