So . . . when are you planning to gut the back of the trailer and install the loading ramps and car lift?

Hopefully the manual is so thick just because of multiple languages.

Gutting the back enough for the car would gut the whole thing. I guess I could leave the murphy bed in the front for somewhere to sleep. I have been dreaming about a Super C with a car trailer though.

John, I see you opted for the TireMinder setup. Be patient with the initial setup; it takes a few minutes to program each tire. And I suggest you mark the sensors afterwards so you know where each one belongs. That way you can remove the sensors when parked for long periods, and easily know where to place them later, so they'll still match what you programmed to the head unit.

And spin balance those trailer tires just like your automotive tires
