Looks reasonable to me...

I guess reasonable is relative.

I sold my pinball machines to buy the Caravel, a move I haven't regretted yet - and i have more room in the house now! I guess Airstreamers just like to have fun

And I think that guitar rocks!

We've noticed that lately - just realized we have "trailers" coming out our ears.

Tandem Boat Trailer
Landscape Trailer
Second small Utility Trailer
Globe Trotter
Overlander and the
Excella

does the mini garden tractor trailer count??? and how about the flower cart too - it has a hitch of sorts.

Bit of a freak with garden tractors - started with my little 69, then recently bought a 85 with a 10 in it and just went to an Auction and could not help but pick up a tractor with a 16hp all B&S motors...the funny thing is we only have a little bit of grass - they are mostly used to haul wood, gravel and well boat supplies from it's storage spot to the house and recently all the Airstream stuff we have aquired back and forth between the 3 sheds.

We thought we better make another trailer pad just incase we don't get everything done this summer so the overlander will have a spot next to the Excella for the Tranplant Surgery.



That is not like moving 5/8 gravel

I have 3 35mm camera's all the same make and model. Just curious does anyone travel with their acoustial guitars? My concern is the top and cracking. I just bought an inexpensive 3/4 size one with a laminated top that i thought would travel well.

I travel with solid top guitars regularly - it's my job. A laminated guitar is more likely to be road worthy - you're right -but they sometimes just don't sound as great.

If you travel w/guitars - get a GREAT hard shell case, keep it out of the heat and sun and treat them like babies. That said - I have rarely had a problem (excluding airlines and theives) and with regular adjustments, maintainance and strings they do pretty well.

Special info for those storing guitars in trailer shower stalls: be sure your grey tank doesn't overfill and backup into the stall - it's bad for instruments. (personal experience...)

Well...let's see....
I have 4 guitars, one bass guitar, one upright bass, a mandolin, a banjo, and 88 fiddles....I think I might fit in here someplace....
If you put a humidifier in the case of acoustic guitars to keep the wood from drying and cracking, and keep them out of direct sunlight and strong heat, in a good hardshell case, they will probably do fine.
Mostly, if you would be climate stressed and uncomfortable in a situation, your guitar would be uncomfortable, too.

I have several hundred music CD's, as well as about 500 DVD's, not to mention a few thousand toy trains. I may also fit in here, sort of.

well I played that airscreamer guitar for about 10 minutes.. now it goes on the wall in the music room. its playable but maybe for one song (airstream blues) has words like "my belly pan dropped on the highway, but its allright 'cause I got my cordless and rivet gun"
the airscreamer is more for decoration than playing. I picked it up on ebay for a few hundred less than the sale price

I have a cheap ($200 incl. hard case) Alvarez RD8 accoustic that I bring with me pretty much everywhere. I treat it with kid gloves...along with the hard case...no scars on it yet. It sounds great.

Having a Marshall stack in your hours, already put you over the edge!
As for the guitar, you can never have too many, each is so different. I pared it down to five-
Gibson ES Artist (1983)
Fender Strat (1983)
Carvin AE 185 ( the most versatile axe I ever played)
Takamine acoustic/elec 6 (1984)
Takamine acoustic/elec 12 (1976?)
Fender Vibrolux amp (blackface 66)
Fender Vibrolux amp (Tan 62)
Fender Harvard II (1982)

Miss my old Yamaha SBG that I sold...
I was up to 11 total, but if I don't play 'em they gotta go!

Well I don't play but wanted something I could learn on and if I gave up on the idea I wouldn't bust the bank. It was a cheapie 3/4 size that I found new in Branson during the rally. I don't plan on babying it and I couldn't find a place to put a full size, after all I'm only in a 34. No matter how big or small the rig you seem to use all of the space.

Hey Ed, I wasn't going to say anything, but since you mentioned it.....it's a POS.
Looks good on the wall, though!
From a player's perspective, and for musicality and tonality, it severely lacks, to put it mildly. Ahem...sorry.
