If I am not mistaken, it is St Patty’s Day. So kiss the Blarney Stone and the little green guys with the hats will keep the trailer in line. Besides, just move the booze to the Honda and all is equal. Now you can put that flame out. Safe travels!

As I stated then if adding a couple of hundred pounds to the back of an AS makes it split apart and sway out of control that trailer shouldn't be on the road period. It is not glass bird cage for cripes sake.
Over analysis induces paralysis.

Now you're catching on.
However, a new F-350 diesel is no problem!

Looks good, a second vote here for a cover though!

I am surprised no one has asked for pics of the underside to see how it is joined to the frame. Maybe it is just my curiosity, or lack of knowledge installing receivers on vehicles..

I really don't have the energy to debate this with you, or with anyone else, but if you want to expose yourself and your family to the various risks, including liability after an accident [whether or not it was your fault] . . . not to mention personal injury or death . . .

. . . be my guest . . .

You forgot 45 pounds for the bumper. So according to you and Airstream 147 pounds is fine. BUT you claim reducing that weight to 128 pounds will cause problems.

Why would 19 pounds less cause problems?

Hi, my biggest concern is with the 2" receiver connection to the generator mount. If it has any slop, it will in time, hammer it's self to death. I would use one of those hitch vises, or what ever they are called to hold everything solid.

Looks like you're not the only one that's mounted a genny to the rear. Here's someone's larger 23' AS with a larger 3000W class genny.

I personally like my genny (Honda eu2200i) on the tongue. But that's also because I have a bike rack at the rear. The genny does a nice job to counterbalance the rack to maintain good tongue weight.

If the AS in question doesn't have enough structural integrity to carry this tiny generator in such manner, while maintaining proper TWR, while not exceeding known weight limits (real or imagined bumper limit not included); should it trusted to do anything? (Just my observation)

Ever considered that the rear bumper limit doesn't apply here, since there is no longer a bumper. I like the look without bumper (Just My Opinion)

I think I can speak for many when I say, I don't give a hoot what AS recommends and I will do what I think is okay without consulting with AS first. I get to use my brain and I get to ignore the unfounded paranoia of others. (Life lesson)

I would not mount anything to the bumper of my 23FB which left the factory with less than 10% TWR. The only model I know like this. (Just the facts)

This was a funny thread, gave me a chuckle, but now that I'm done reading I find myself very concerned about the penguins.

Whose? 😂



Most folks realize that JC just's pins the tail on the donkey regarding TW.

Everyone has a right to their own opinions and paranoia.

Now I have to include weight for a non-existent bumper as well? You are sure hard to please...but ok. Before you say anything more, I am going to be proactive and commit to no longer traveling with my unicorn in the the bathroom. That guy does nothing but eat Skittles and fart rainbows all day. Can't trust a creature like that.

Your work is done here sir. My life has been changed.
