flboy, Howdy;

How are those "Air Tabs" working for ya? Any improvement in fuel mileage or stability?
I know you have the double rig for the hitch but none the less any thing noticeable?

Hi Hank. I hope all is well with you.

The tabs did nothing detectable for the fuel economy; however, they made a very noticeable difference in stability in crosswinds, and large vehicles approaching from behind. Definitely do not get sucked over when a semi sneaks up like I did before I installed the Air Tabs.

I think that alone is worth the spend, and I like the look. They are good conversation pieces if nothing else.. Many times when I am out camping or on the road with this CTC, I am approached to ask where did I get the trailer and who made it and etc. and alot of those times they will ask what are "those things " for.

Hi Hank. Tommy is doing well. He went camping with me last weekend. The whole wrist thing has put a damper on any aggressive off road riding like we use to do, but we did get in some dual sporting and just plain old enjoying the camping.
