The more I look at the photo I think I've been snookered!

It has been the cause of some discussion here, though.

Being a new guy at this, I see what people are talking about. Blocked vision, nose down, squat, etc.

But, maybe someone could help me out. Isn’t the front of the trailer high? I know the hitch will/can be somewhat higher than the ball, what I think that I see is that the rear of the trailer is lower than the front.

Ignoring the front of the TV somewhat, shouldn’t the TT be a bit more level?
Is it within normal spec’s? It looks like the bottom of the frame in front is level with the top of the frame in back. Maybe, one should just drag out the torpedo level?

I only ask because in addition to our 5er, we have an 1985 16’ Layton the DW wants refurbished and to serve as our primary run around trailer. I am looking to be sure I will be successful at pulling it vs trying to park the 32’ 5er.

Saw these 2 FR Cherokee Ice Cave TT's heading west on I-80/90 this afternoon south of Chicago. There were 3 more on another trailer behind this one.

Looks like they come in 5 floorplans:

They had a winch like you'd see on the tongue of a boat trailer inside the extra-large wheel wells for cranking it up and down onto the ice.

The site team has removed a handful of recent posts here, so if you notice yours missing, now you know why.

We all like jokes as much as the next guy or gal but there are certain subjects that seem to incite people to say things that can get others a little riled up, which makes the thread go off the rails and end up being closed.

So we've found over the years that it's best to just nip it in the bud right away.

Please do not re-post any deleted material.

Thanks for understanding.

Moderators Note


This thread has been active a very long time and despite a few offensive posts has navigated the subject and stayed within site guidelines. The recent flurry of posts regarding site team actions has not only drifted off topic, but into site rule violations. The offending posts have been removed by the site team. Incidentally several other posts needed to be removed as they made little sense once the offending quoted post was removed. The thread will be closed if these violations continue.



The Site TEAM.

I hope this thread doesn't end, it's one of my favorites. Maybe someday I'll figure out how to post some of my pics.
