Lee and I spent the afternoon test fitting the Commander and the Mustang in our new Stacker trailer. It allows us to take both cars, a golf cart and a workshop full of tools along as we wander around. I retired a few weeks ago although I will still make presentations and help my company in other ways.

The Mustang fits on the 4,000# lift and is raised 6' 6" up to allow the Commander to fit underneath it.

Yes, I had to put the Mustang on an open trailer to tow it. My old car trailer is actually older than the Mustang and I have had the Mustang 22 years. It always towed well with the equalizer hitch and a friction sway control. I replaced over the years everything except the frame. I am giving the old flatbed trailer and my storage shed / workshop to my son in law.

We hit the road two days ago. Now that I am retired and the weather is close to getting warm it is time to play. I spent much of the last two months in Arizona getting everything installed in the stacker and ready for a very long trip.

I have a Hughes Net MotoSat dish on the coach for Internet as a backup to my two spring 4G computer cards so I should have a connection anywhere.

I installed a second generator for the stacker alone but I have a connection to to AC power using an outlet on the back of the coach when they are parked together.

I also added a second air compressor for the stacker in case I cannot use the front air connections of the coach. I have just about every air tool or other tools you could ever need for the shop in the stacker.

My last thing to do will be to paint the white part of the stacker to match the coach. I have been holding off because I am still planning to get a larger 45 foot coach which will probably be a different color.

It pulls nice and has plenty of power for me, slows on the really long big hills but I am not in a hurry anymore.

With the Commander, the Mustang, Golf Cart, bikes, shop, loft full of stuff including lots of MRE's and cases of Nutra system food it weighs about 20,000 pounds.

Here are some pictures of us today in Flagstaff.

We just stopped for the night in Amarillo at one of the few RV Parks that will take a 72 foot rig.

Wind is kicking up and storm is heading this way. We may stay here for the storm or try to get ahead of it tomorrow.

Next stop is KC to see the kids and grandkids.

I added a home theatre and game arcade to the stacker. It now has blue ray, DVD, Sat TV, XBox360, WII, and a Playstation hooked up to a flat screen. I also added a sound system that can play whatever is on the flat screen. We use the recliners from outside.

Here are some pictures.
