Please tell me yours isn't that 'one,' hahaha! I'm partial to Mack Trucks, myself. Those are second to Peterbilt's !!! (Cue, PJ !)

Anthem? Pinnacle? I couldn't find a Mack Cabover . . . I borrowed this one:

I found this KW VIT pulling a 5th wheel rv while staying in a campground in Crossville Tn. It looks like he removed the tandems for a single rear wheel set up and installed an rv style 5th wheel. I didn't know how to download photos so I asked PackRat to do it for me. I'll try and talk to the owner and if I get any info I'll post back here.

Thanks PackRat, navypoppop

Tandems:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

That's bad ARSKE, good sir!

Brett has a 'Vimeo' at the bottom, with instructions for posting pix ... Pack Rat & Rob T. taught me. I taught BK.

You'll get it! Just try.. can't hurt!! Blank pages can be deleted, by you hitting 'report' after you post empty.

(Are YOU getting a set up like that for next season,good sir ?!?!?)
