what??

moe

good one lol!

beer doesn't weigh too much is you have an active program of reducing the number of cans.

did i mention i can get at least 54 cans in the dometic?

Hmmm -- www.newbelgium.com has the same idea John. Somebody will put a tapper right out the side under the awning some day... (It sez that's a '63 Land Yacht)

tapper?

hmmmmmm...

now ya got me thinking.....

a tapper would cut down on all those pesky emptys cluttering up the camp site.

the co 2 tank could double as a on board fire extingisher!


hmmmmmm.....

Norby -- And who would want their beer foam floating about the room?

I just noticed something on New Belgium Brewing's website. Their Land Yacht's name is 'Abbey.' The curious thing is the trailer brand -- Beerstream. Quickly John! You'd better grab it for your forums handle before a Badger State guest decides to join under that name!!

for us. for the rest of the country. Pass the cheese curds. 17 days til' we break out the lutefisk!

If you transfer the weight to the black water tank after processing, it should actually make the tongue weight less...

doh!

i missed that question!

must have been thinking about the tapper too much.

terry is correct, my active weight reduction plan is to transfer as much to the black tank as possible. thus lightening the tounge weight!

i gotta go check and see if i take the shelves out of the dometic if a half barrel will fit.

One of my first thoughts...

When I saw the Airstream I bought was that the two 40 lb. propane tanks would brew a lot of beer.

Here is an alternative way to cool your beer. Bolt it to the back of the coach. It can be run when travleing mountain passes and recover more then the lost power due to altitude and the weight of the beer. Save weight and toss out that Dometic.

Real hoot in the campground and 5 am.

Hey, Doctor Frankenstein, show us some pictures when you 're done with this thing! Or should we just watch the six o'clock news for the "man building jet cooler blows up neighborhood" story?
