Default Remember the Long Long Trailer

Where they pulled a 6000 pound trailer for the most part with a 53 Mercury 105 horsepower flat head V8 (a Lincoln Capri was used in one scene because they needed that big 205 horsepower engine on the mountain).

well, look at this and read the review. While at the SEMA convention - welcome to mrtrailer.com

It just might be the answer for a smaller tow vehicle. Has anyone tried one of these?

Or when Lucy falls out of the camper doorway into the mud after a hard rain in the middle of the night with the camper bogged down on a forest service road, Desi leans out of the door and says "What's the matter honey, you can't sleep?"

the scene where they have to back up on a hairpin turn to make the corner on the mountain will give you goosebumps...

also, Desi talks about the trailer 'electric brakes' which i found interesting...

Thought I had taken a photo of that particular turn on our recent trip up to Mt. Whitney but couldn't find it. I believe this was taken just above that turn.

That sort of looks like a riff on an old slimp wheel.

Would be interesting to know if that counts as a third axle on the tow vehicle on some toll roads. On the 70 mile stretch of Kansas Turnpike between KC and our exit the toll is $3 for four axles and $7 for five axles.
