answer, yes you can. the real question is can the swelling on his head be reduced enough after the haul to get out of the tow vehicle?

2/3 of the weight of my truck is tire,wheel,and axel so the center of gravity is low.That truck and trailer pulled it with no effort at all and Calvin did a fine job driving it-----the other cars didnt think so,but he was on my side and kept my tuck out of the trees.Thanks Calvin and Shorty!!!!Oh and it was 14'6" on the trailer.

Thanks - Dave

dave did a great job for us at Meadville. i would highly recommend trailering the AirDog through town anytime. THIS IS SUPER ADVERTISING!!!! however since Calvin lives nearby and since Calvin already knew most of the police force (previous experience), it worked out fine.

dave - thanks for all of your help in promoting our first NADM event in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

and a shout out to Calvin for a great run in his hometown.

Why do you think Calvin bought a 4 door?So he can get his head out when he is done.

Just curious, what does that thing weigh, and how wide is it?

Open trailers definitely get more attention pulling through town. I can remember running as a convoy to out-of-town races with friends who all had enclosed trailers (and much nicer looking race cars than mine). At every fuel stop it was my rig that attracted all the attention

Just under 10,000 lbs and 12'4" wide.It actualy can be a pain and you lose to much time when its on a open trailer because of all the questions.Its a love hate kinda deal.

Awesome Although, at 12'4" wide, that's narrower than I thought it would be.

Anything under 14', I barely slow down...16' it get's interesting, and at 18' we start escorting

Looks good!!

They (monster trucks)are all are usualy under 12'6" due to it cant get certified because of the exits in stadiums are only required to be 12'6" and in the event of disaster they want you to be able to gety it out with the tires on.But yea Calvin had no troubles-----was a walk in the park.

Never thought about that, but I guess most stadiums I've been to do have narrow doors!

Sure looks good hauling it like that though
