Relocating fwd gaucho

Soooo, as I plan my gut job (to rework the rear floor), I am thinking of my options to move a few items around .... I'd like to *swing* the fwd gaucho 90 degrees so that the back rests along the street-side wall. The table that resides street-side now will move to fwd wall, taking the gaucho's previous position. I don't know what the weight difference is to decide if it will cause a balance issue... I know the street-side of the trailer already has more weight due to the addition of a large refer - but I'll change that back to a smaller dometic.

Anyone have any thoughts on this? Thanks in advance

Laura

You should be fine with you're plan. You're not shifting that much weight around. I've done several similar things and they didn't change a thing from a towability standpoint.

If you're really worried, pick your smallest anvil from your collection and place it on the light spot.

Thanks Jim - that was the answer I was hoping to get! Hey, how's your paint job holding up? Any more sticky walls?

Paint's holding up really, really well. What's it been now, 2 years or 3? Can't remember. No more sticky walls.

How's your new career going? Did you find something in your field? I hear SpaceX is hiring.....

Well, more of "in the field". I'm the caretaker for a private horse ranch, orchard and farm in rural Reno, NV. I didn't expect it to take months to hear back from recruiters for engineering and made the move out here a couple months after layoff from KSC. THEN the recruiters (mostly aircraft related) started calling. I'm set here for at least another year - it's challenging in many new ways.

Space X rocks! But they've been hiring cream-of-the-crop designer engineers and working them 70 hrs a week. Would love to get an opportunity to interview with them but I know few who make it past application (mine included).
Thanks for asking - it was a tough reality check.
