    Actually, I set the length at 120. Part of the bed is permanent, so that one of us can be in bed while the other one drives. I agree after yesterday that 3000 might be a hair much, but she traveled straight and true

    Got a run with the old van one night out of PA going to NC; the carrier asked me if I’d go with 2800 lbs (set weight was 2650). I said okay. Get to the pick and they put the skids on the van. She squatted like a dog on a walk. I asked the shipper to remove and reweigh the skids. 4450!!

    Oh well, that was a $75 TONU

    Nice... keep Wife happy
    My wall is at 110" to leave rest of room for bed area ...
    But if needed for 3 skids .. wall door swings open and bed folds forward ... maybe 10 to 12 times a year ..

    All i want is a Piece of the Pie ..

    I think I struck a nice compromise: with the whole bed down, we can handle two skids. The rear section of the bed is 18”; fold that up, there’s the whole 120”. Not the longest freight section out there, but being a team is a better selling point, IMHO
