Bill,

I don't know if it was the "chicken or the egg" That photo of the 2500 Suburban backing with the Airstream is a full page spread in the current Chevorlet Suburban information booklet. Any guess to which Airstream they are attached to??

Not sure....However, the blue stripe and window skylight should be a hint. Anyone recognize which model it is?

WOW!!!

Just Back from the test drive. Quadrasteer is a home run!!! I was sold before I was out of the dealer's lot. It will take a few days for my brain to adjust to the way the steering works, but it makes a full size truck turn tighter than my Jeep Grand. I am with you all that after driving with Quadrasteer there is no going bacK!!!!!!!
ps I asked the owner of the Richmond Chevorlet dealer about the possibility of a Duramax/Allison combo in the Suburban and he said that question was asked at a national meeting and the answer was not in the near future.

Big Dee,
I will always remember you because you gave me the "go ahead" to give it a try!!! These next few months will seem to drag on. We put a deposit on a vintage trailer last week. We are about 7 months out on delivery. (Cool couple that re-stores vintage to your specs while keeping it as original as possible, but this is a whole different thread) And the Burb is a 12 week build out so I am waiting till the trailer is closer to finished...Hope we meet at a rally

Abe,

That sounds really cool! Did you "order" a vintage restored to your specs or was it already in the pipeline? So it's like getting a brand new vintage trailer? That's cool!

I can't wait to meet EVERYONE that is on this forum aat a rally someday. That will be my life goal! But we will need to post our forum names on our trailers so we know who's who.

Dee, Josh and Steve,
Do you ever drive with the 2 wheel setting rather than 4? I would think that after getting used to the 4 wheel setting that you would just leave it in 4.
As for the Burb, 12 weeks for the build date after the deposit. It takes longer for the quadrsteer option, but not a problem

I never take it out of 4WS. One time it was in 2WS and I kept going over curbs when pulling out. I was getting mad at myself for poor driving then I noticed I wasn't in 4WS. Once you get used to it, you can't drive without it (literaly)!

The only time I ever turn it off is when I lend it to a friend. I fear that they may turn the rear into another car while parking.

same direction

we have a grove 40 ton crane at work that can "crab" meaning you can get all 4 wheels going in the same direction.

i wonder how long it will take some enterprising person to fool a quadra steer into doing that?

would be cool for parallel parking!

Turn it off when you go in the car wash or you will be washing it sideways.

2 Wheel vs 4 Wheel

I have taken my truck out of 4 wheel steering only one time. I wanted to see what type of difference the Quadrasteer made in a parking lot. The difference was amazing. I don't see why anyone would drive with it in the 2 wheel steering mode.
