Looking pretty sweet!

Can't wait to see it at BV . . .

However, we can't let them win all of our door prizes! :eek:

Although I do now have a very special pair of socks that I brought home from the Tucson rally last month . . . :rolleyes:

It is my owners club plaque. I reversed the brackets so it sits behind the ladder so I can still use that rung to climb.

Off subject question for you. Do you have your bikes on fork mounts set on the side rail with the bikes sitting on a tool box? I tried that setup but my bikes hit the front cap during turns. Have you had any issues?

When I was planning for this setup I measured for the way you described and even with an 8 ft box it was not going to work. What I did was buy a in bed tool chest and mounted the fork mounts to it instead. I went with this http://www.uwsta.com/p/60-standard-chest-1?pp=12 for 3 reasons. It was the biggest chest I could find, made in the USA, and their lids are really thick to hold the load of the bikes. I still have to loosen and turn the rear most bikes handle bar to keep it from hitting, but having this setup in 3 pick ups we have not hit the rig so far. I just use ratchet straps to the bed rail to keep the rear tires from bouncing. We will be moving in a couple of days and I can take some pics for you if interested.

This is in Slidell La. We are parked next to a very nice couple from Iowa. Our rig is 13'3" and the water during Katrina was about 7 feet more right where we sit! It is hard for me to imagine.

They are over 3 hours away. Not an easy thing to do. Lol. All though if they find their way through here again it could work out.

Oh, ok, sorry, thought y'all were closer. But hey, 3 hours in Texas isn't that far, I'm driving that every weekend, from Dallas to Cisco (3 hours one way) and back, while I work in Dallas during the week.
