Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

My sister painted this on the rear of the camper:


This one was in Missouri, I think.

Also in Kansas, who knew they had one also?

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Somewhere in Tennessee,

Found some very nice camp areas.

No lie, this is the name of a town and local bank.

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Nice pictures. I always enjoy seeing the old iron when I visit my daughter in Wichita. It is so dry up there where the old iron lasts better, than down here in high humidity world .

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Where in KS where the pictures taken, central or Western? I know I've been past that station before.

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

Very nice trip. That's awesome you had 0 issues with the truck. The camper is looking awesome in every pic! That new signage on the back looks sweet! I love seeing old iron, let a lone rust free stuff!!

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

That is sweet! Looks like you had a great trip and glad you had no issues. When you are on the highway how fast are you cruising?

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

With no winds or any tail wind 75 to 80. With a head wind 65 to 73. It did not like head winds for sure and stayed in 3rd most of the time. a lower rear end gear would help but normally I don't have the camper on the back so I can't see it happening any time soon. Gas mileage ranged from 8 to 12 depending on wind, ha, so much for the aero plan on the camper. With all that being said I wouldn't change a thing. Had a great time.

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

I don't think you can do much other that an aero wing to help with the wind and hauling tall loads. You got way better than a BBC pulling any tall camper. I'd just leave your rear end as is and keep on trucking.

Re: Loadmaster '47 COE

I wouldn't touch the gears either. That's right where you would be with the pickup body, towing a trailer.
