No. It was ment to be a word joke.
I suppose Darrel means 'Watt' where he writes 'Amp'.
I promise I never try again ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

Well don't quit on my account, Lex, I liked it. I was trying to show acknowledgement of the joke. but I didn't want to laugh too loud if you were serious. <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3ed9ac0f36d72kugel.gif/> throw a smiley in there if you want, for further clarification. :lol BUT then again if you were going for correction then maybe not. <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3e6d1ad1410e0footmouth.GIF/>

All is well no offence taken about the humor at my expense. I can take it.
Well I have had a little setback on my trailer project. I will still take it for its maiden trip but may not have everything completed. I have to use my free time to do some engine repair to my tow rig. I hope to have it on two wheels this weekend so I can get regristration details taken care of. I will get pictures when it is on the road.
thanks again for all your encouragement.

Horray it took its first step to the DMV today:banana
This is a picture of my bedrolls first time out on its own wheels showing the lift with the new tires, axle and new frame. I am using a narrow 3500# streight axle which gives a good lift with 15 inch tires. I have a little bit of forward slope to the trailer but that will be corrected as soon as I install a new towing bumper which I am having built. <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3f13637e13896Old Blue and Bedroll.jpg/>
The tongue looks a little long in this picture but as soon as I add the Propane tanks and spare tire rack it should fill up. However my turning radious is good. It's turn diameter is less than the overall length of the rig.

Excellent Darrel! <img src=http://members.shaw.ca/JoeyTomato/clap.gif/>

It's amazing how closely the Compact II's lines match your Bronco.
I really need to get my Boler's altitute up too, to match the Jeep.
The 15" Wheels sure do help don't they ;)

Here's a little "photoshop" present for you...

BTW, is your CompactII on a torsion axle/suspension?

Mike

Hi Mike
Thank you for the picture update. Yes I have been excited about the classic lines on both rigs since I found the Compact II. I considered a torsion axle install and I may do It yet. The axle I'm using is a straight axle spring combo. The torsion axle would give me much more clearance. I even found one that could be modified. Actually I am engineering the axle so that it will be movable from low for on highway and raised for off highway. I am trying to factor in the Camber needed to swivel the axle tube or the spindle lever to maintain the camber. I wanted to get it on the road so I could start using it until the new axle is finished.
Thanks again and good luck on your Joey Tomatoe.
