This trailer will be a keeper for while, needs some work but I love the more recent features, like padded ceiling and no cracking end and front caps.

Peter,

Mine arrived this afternoon!!!! I won't get around to installing them for a while yet, but it will be in conjunction with some new tires once the weather breaks.

Once againÖ. THANKS for all of the energy and determination that it took to make this happen.

Charly

Too long/too many axles. Now if they made a sub-28ft diesel pusher that maybe tempting

According to Fred's website they made one at 27ft but 'ruined' it by putting the bath-room in the back!

Mine arrived. I may brave the cold and install them this weekend. I guess now I have to spring for a pair for the rear also. Thanks for your persistence in making this happen.

Centramatics arrived

Peter,

Centramatics were waiting by the door when we got home from a trip.

Thanks again for all your effort and time.

We all appreciate it a lot.

Best to you and your gang.

Dick

Just curious to see if anyone is thinking of giving these a paint job first to ward off corrosion.

John figures a good coat of brake caliper paint should do the trick. Poweder coating was deemed too thick.

Cheers

Tony, I can't answer your question about paint but I'd be leery of powder coating the balancers due to the heat involved in the powder coating process.

I think you would void the warranty.

Paint it is. I hadn't thought of the heat issue as it's going to get pretty hot where they are going to be anyway.

Cheers

Centramatics Delivery

Hi Peter,

I was away and my two packages were pulled into the living room by my mom. I haven't opened them yet but I assume the large contains the two set for the rear. Thanks again for your efforts. I'll be emailing you soon.

I installed mine last weekend. I couldn't find anything in the instructions on the rear installation of the dish between the two rims. If you are suppose to install the bead tube towards the outside tire or towards the inside tire. I couldn't see how it would make a difference either way in changing the performance of it balancing, so I called the company and was told they can be installed either way. You would think they would mention that somewhere, or if they did I didn't find it. Maybe if somebody else has the same question this will help.

I still have a set for the P-30 front someone cancelled after I ordered them.
Please PM me if you are interested. This may be your last chance to get a set, since I will not do this again.
