Ever Wonder...? Followup video!

Here is a follow-up video showing the impact of modifications to the ride of our 2012 International Serenity 16" Bambi.

The changes to the Bambi that impact ride are the following:
1. I replaced the Equalizer hitch (it is for sale if anyone needs one) with a ProPride.
2. I replaced the Marathon tires with Michelin LTX 15's at 50psi.
3. I added shock absorbers to the suspension.

I am a compulsive modifier and in this case have the video evidence of the before and after. The first video was made when the Bambi was new and in un-modified condition.

The second video is after modifications. The road is the same road driving in the opposite direction. No repairs have been made to the roads and arguably after 18 months they are probably a little worse for the wear.

Judge for yourself!

The difference seems "noticeable", but it also looks like you were driving slower in the second video, possibly?

And, you ran the stop sign in the second video. :-)

What are you a cop????

As far as speed, I drove the speed limits on that road in both videos.
The difference in the trailer is actually pretty amazing.
We no longer find the tea pot (stored in the sink while we travel no less) on the floor of the Bambi after big bumps!

We'll let you off with a warning this time, but next time you run a stop sign, don't incriminate yourself on video, okay?

And have a nice day, sir.
