I looked around to see what I could find on the subject. Trailer life had a good article, I thought could just advise people to read that and I could just expand on what they said. Its call "Trailer life roof air leak repair". If the air conditioner frame touches the roof then its gasket replacement time. They are designed to drain out the bottom of the pan and touching the roof restricts flow of water. That's why you NEVER seal the outside edge of the pan. Also, the pan will rub the…Continue

I hope you have a good recovery David. I don't want to say anything funny to make you laugh after what you have been through. Take care.
Congratulations! David,you are definitely the guru of all things camper related and an asset to all of the community here at GORV.
David,Thanks for all of the RV insight's you have shared with us!
The tandem does have more maintance factors as Lakota pointed out. I did start off thinking a single axel version design. But I have a friend & former employer that has a late model trailer and tows it with his Vett. Anyway he was on his way back from FL and the trailer had a axel come off out in the middle of nowhere on I-95. Long story short, he left his trailer on the side of 95 drove some dist. for parts then was on his way again. He does tote his Harley in it, and has a sleeping configuration too. I guess you'd call the interior décor of the trailer "shop style" with comfy bunk. So I decided on the tandem axel. They do look nice with some Mooney's on. Well the rack David, your right. That's just too much stuff if I have to get a rack, and it decreases the aerodynamic agenda I have. I hate extra stuff. If I wanted to take the house camping then I'd figure how to put a stevedore under it and go camping,,,LOL...
Hi David. I haven't even thought about doing bike racks for a Mt Bike yet. Probably won't. I might put a "Tundra Basket" / "Safari Rack" on top. I could throw the bike on that. No Harleys though David.
You would need a larger camper to put bikes in it. I'm into "Rice Rockets" and I think I would get a "Toy Hauler" to tote the scoots. If you like small campers, I just bought a book titled, "TearDrops and Tiny Trailers. Authored by Douglas Keister. It shows a multitude of variations and the history of the TearDrop. I had never seen a tandem one and needed shelter while I Restore my Travco.
I'm not sure how a Harley rack would be used on a Tear Drop camper. That's a good idea about the Elf effects. Aerodynamic that's for sure.
