Thanks for the brainstorming Maketimber.
I knew you were from Cal. when your post started with "Bitchen". "The Spud Gunners"... a free sch40 ABS spud gun with a can of starting fluid with each rig? Maybe not. Wouldn't want ATF to go all Waco on me. I've had a sit down with Idaho dep. of commerce... but public sector wheels turn so slow. With few point of sale venues for motorcycle camp trailers, units are shipped or picked up via road trip, making the manufacturing location a trip destination. There are no US moto-camper manufacturers in the west. I hoped to keep this rig's manufacture here in Idaho to make Idaho jobs, but If I don't get an offer soon I'll be contacting existing manufactures.
rzrob-- I want to keep the bat and center of gravity as low as possible. But in my proto it is adjustable, can be moved up for rocky roads.
Crossthread- I've added you to my "want one" list.
And thanks for the thumbs up, DP.
