What hitch setup did you go with. Helper bags? That big ol bitch has to have some tongue weight. My guess is 1300lb minimum.

Hey everyone I will up date you guys later we didn't get home in ER in el centro think mrs beerrun had a heart attack

Hoping it's indigestion or gall bladder rather than a heart attack

Prayers for Mrs Beerun and hoping just indigestion or something less severe.

Hope she is OK. If you want the trailer picked up and stored in Carlsbad while you Mrs deal With ER, let me know.
I could be in EC in apx 3 hours
I was hoping someone would step up to help if needed. Good man. Praying everything is ok and everyone will be enjoying some adventures soon enough

Good morning everyone so Mrs beerrun checked herself out of the hospital last night after they told her they are not sure what is going on and wanted her to stay till Monday for a stress test and if that went bed they would transfer her by ambulance to san diego so we left and I hauled ass to get her back into san diego country where we can get better care. ( if you ever need a hospital in that area el centro is the place to go NOT YUMA if you can get there) so we are up this morning she is feeling good and is thinking it was stress between no sleep the new trailer and work and a couple other things. So let's get back to this story of an Attitude toyhauler.

When I get back to the truck tireless ( I couldn't find it not that I really wanted it back) I talked to the owner again and they were sending a truck to get the Trailer i told deb to call the CHP and ask for an escort off the freeway I didn't think i could run more then 45mph and didn't want to get run over. After talking to the owner again we agreed I should tow it home or back to his shop ( if you guys don't know I'm a lowbed heavy haul truck driver) so no kid at a motorcycle shop is going to have my experience. Deb and I decide to tow back to the dealership less miles.

Loose lug nuts probably. Fuck me, you wouldn't think you would have to check that....but lesson learned I guess. What a nightmare of a trip.

I hope your experiences improve!!

The shop bought us lunch at habbit burger next door we walk over and they tell us we can't come in without a mask you can sit there and eat without a mask but you can't come in without one I was in a really bad mood and told them to go fuck themselves and we went across the street to in an out . This is where deb said let her drive that I had basically been awake for 2 days straight so we eat really quick and get on the road deb driving. I settled in to the passenger side of the truck ( strange place for me I always drive) and start this thread we didn't get to the rest area before deb started having severe chest pain she gets pulled over im dialing 911 and she says not to call because we are on 5he freeway and I can get her there faster so I get her in the truck and I get her to the hospital in 5min

Thanks everyone this was supposed to be a fun thread and it took a really bad turn. We started the morning so excited to finally get our new toyhauler after a year of waiting so from big highs to being in the hospital in tears for deb she is my rock and we have been through alot in 39 years I can't imagine her not being here and how helpless you feel on the side of a freeway in an emergency

If you need ANYTHING let me know. Obviously leave the trailer and coyne will make it right. ALL trailers are crap they way they are built and the shit labor.
Request a extended warranty or that they take it back...yes thats a pain in the ass.

I went through 2 years of shit with weekend warrior and lawsuits. At the end of it all the time lost was what hurt the most. For you, health is priceless, trailers come and go, good ladies dont.

@beerrun my buddy had the same thing happen to the trailer. It wasn’t torqued. He demanded a new whole hub, brake and wheel assembly. Got it too.
