Turbo Travel Trailer

Ok, I'm really surprised that none of you have one of these beauties yet!!

I can just see this at next years Meet & Greet. How long do you think it would take before The Sunline Owners Club would be banned from Buttonwood Campground

Hoon Of The Day: Turbo Trailer Pops Up Wheelies

Watch and Enjoy!!:hehe:

kanyonkitty is an unknown quantity at this point
Pat,

I've seen that before, and still get a chuckle when I watch it again. Now, to continue with my plans to put a motor in the 2499, do you "think" I would need to use a bigger motor than they did ? I want to make sure that I do good "wheelies" and our 2499s' are tongue heavy. So your imput would be apppreciated.

Hay, ya gotta know I had a snow day today, and we "didn't get the snow & ice" so I've been amusing myself online most of the day

Kitty

Kitty something tells me if you could find a used Power Stroke Diesel you'd have no problem popping those wheelies with that tounge heavy 2499

Good Luck, and make sure you show us plenty of picture of the build up! Something tells me you'd be on Jay Leno or David Letterman or at least make the cover of next years Sunline Owners Club Calendar!!

Hey I know why it pops wheelies, those bikes on the back exceed the bumpers 100 # limit.

That was good....

and as for Leno, if he saw it, and it was done well, he'd probably buy it!

BTW- a PSD may be too heavy- I think that a nice 302 'stang motor or 350 cid Chevy motor with a blower or NOS would work nice too....

Mount the PSD in the rear of the coach and it would give new meaning to the term "Diesel Pusher".

H'mm Kitty,

If your going to soup up that T2499, see Hutches post on putting drag wheels on the back verse the drag V's you have. It might have to be a required upgrade.......

I have seen that flic before. And the bikes on the back is a real nice touch.... It is so silly, I still laugh at it and say "why"? Some have old fashion hot rods, well I guess some have Hot TT's.

Stay warm down there. Freezing rain out most of the day here over snow. No camping this weekend, again.... I'm going into camping withdrawl...

John
