Hit the send button accidentally. I'm on the iPod.
With the additional length of the GN it would in effect set the trailer axles back. More like a GN.
With the GN one would be able to turn much sharper, especially if an anti sway system were on the bumper pull rig. Which in some cases requires removal of the anti sway system prior to backing.
Not being totally informed about the cam type hitches, I don't know if there is anything special refunded in order to back.

This idea is something I was considering. I like keeping the old brain cells dusted off.

Perryg114.
I am seriously considering it. About the only thing that keeps me from giving it a try is time and $$$$. At this point the $ is going into the Argosy 26' improvement project. I just installed new axles and tires. As everyone knows that requires some significant $$$'s.
Right now I have over 10K in this old trailer. Don't know if I'll ever camp enough in it enough to break even.
But it is still cheaper than therapy. LOL
Besides it's much more satisfying to look at the trailer than a stack of receipts from the shrink. Not that I've been to one. Maybe this is the reason. LOL

I want to drive this, just for a few minutes. 18 to 20 MPG towing!

You don't need a VW to do that.
