Never thought I would say this - I think you may need a bigger garage.

Wow, you are on the next level. What's the plan with the toter? A nationwide tour of historic racetracks?

Had one as well, Hazmat and tanker, air break endorsement but gave it up. Gather that any penalties speeding/any moving violations carried harsher penalties and did not need it so gave it up

No. Can tow up to about 40K lbs, but its only setup for bumper hitch or gooseneck. Waiting on a gooseneck stacker trailer in the next several months to replace my current enclosed.

I think I need to stick with what I've got.

Planning to be able to attend races and/or track events around the country without Cindy having to drive separately. Plus we'll be bringing our 2 ankle-biters with us, too. As well as touristy touring, like national parks, with a car (my resurrected Focus SVT) on a front wheel dolley. Lots of options.

The other thing that drivers messed up on was backing into the box without hitting the center cone. We trained the drivers to use markers on the side of the bus to estimate where the bumper is. Buses have a wheel lip molding that if you imagine a straight line from the mirror to the lip and continue on to the back of the bus it would mark a spot on the ground where the bumper is. With enough practice, drivers could get within a foot of the center cone and stop getting a passing score on that test. Same holds true for when to start turning. I forget exactly but when the first side cone was at the door you could start turning and the rear wheels would be centered in the box. Lots of practice and you will be fine. The fact that you speak English will be a refreshing change for the examiner....
