Got a hand calculated 25.3mpg from Houston to Ardmore. Not bad fer the lower gap cover acting as a speed brake and a 15 minute stop and go traffic because of an accident on I-35 Northbound.

Got to drive down an unpaved road and got to observe some dirt flow analysis.

So I'm thinking about revamping my approach to this project.

Make the trailer to be only the bottom section of the extension and build a enclosed shell fer the top that would be attached to the truck. This would allow the trailer to articulate within the top without changing the angle of the top. Of course this would limit the places I could go because of the approach/departure angle of the driveways. I don't really worry about that with the current configuration at all since the whole trailer setup has a very good range of clearance.

What linitations do you experience with the boat tails that you with boat tails have now?

Pix? Here's mine:



The floor of the boat tail pivots up to close the back like a horse trailer or something, and there are double-walled inflatable sections.

The wheelbase was supposed to be variable but I didn't sort out the exhaust system. I think I stole this from Barbarella.

Also, think armadillo shell.

On the 2014 setup,I was a bit conservative with the diffuser angle and never experienced a ground-strike until I hit the submerged moguls at 'Lake' Bonneville.
For 2017 I've lowered the diffuser for the new tail and stinger.It's near the 2.8-degree up-slope sweet spot for a long diffuser.
The tail clears my low-water crossing in the driveway if I creep out slowly,but it will be awhile before it's far enough along to get it out on the road.So I haven't a clue about 'issues' yet.
One thing about the 2-wheel trailer project.On that,I had an articulated bedcover extension which hinged at the back of the bedcover and rode up or down on the trailer top as it pitched,which could be removed at a campsite along with the trailer for local commuting.It worked real good,even when the trailer 'rolled'/teetered on the ball-hitch.

This is what I was thinking of when I said 'armadillo'.
