Sticking out over the Grand Canyon? I don't think so!

But in certain places, that would be real nice.
Deck weight limit is 1400 lbs though the most I've had is probably 500 lbs. The picture doesn't show it but 5' off the back deck is the Lake Martin.

Is that really only tandem axle?

If it's equipped with heavy enough axles (8 lug) there's no problem with tandem.

Most states per Rules of the Road won't even allow anything over 45', and only a couple allow 50'..

I can say that the rules for Maryland don't match up with my communications with the state back when I was buying my camper. At 42', I'm over the Woodalls published limit.
