I would have thought that removing all that furniture up front would have a negative effect on the TT's balance, perhaps lightening the load on the hitch too much...?

It's just the gaucho- no water tank or anything like that- battery isn't even up there. You wouldn't cause any issues with weight distribution.

Bunk Bed Pics

Hopefully this download works. This is the PVC loft that I put together. I attached the base to subfloor. The rest of comes apart in large pieces that fit nicely in the closet directly across from the bed. Might not be too pretty but it is a sturdy bed for a kid. And if we go camping without we can take it all down.

She (not he) and her pal are always free to tent it if they like...

although May thru Nov down here you would be hauled away by mosquitoes..

but they'd probably choose chillin' with a dvd (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: "Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs" (great movie), "Teacher's Pet" (art by Gary Baseman!) and anything "Simpsons") on the gaucho..

(the real reason I want the bunk is so me and my four-piece psychobilly band can hit the road for groupies, grub, and ole grand dad, yknow, toss a few tv's off the roof, set random fires, that sorta thing... at least that's what I tell my wife.. ;-)
