lots of trailer woes -- posted on Twitthttps://twitter.com/ourlongwayhomeer and will update here later. Broken frame/front and then wheel issues. Wrong wheel studs (SAE not Toyota), improper sized/style wheel nuts and no 'spacer' to take up the slack
Currently in Panama and only some minor issues (trailer woes again- air bags, welds), punctured tires, did I mention new fuel pump as cutting out twice while driving (at least it was only 5mph)). Weather HOT with 95f/35C but at least now on beach - Pacific side. Caribbean side was wet and very humid - very nice "jungle" .. Will update later with more info
If following best to watch Twitter feed and then FB and Website in "updated-ness" order.
Update: finished the trip in Sept with wife+kids flying back earlier to organise schools, housing etc.
Trip was fantastic and main two issues:
1) should have learned more Spanish before we left - would have allowed us to interact more with locals
2) we were only on the trip one year (2-3 yrs for that route would have been better so we could slow down more and take it easy, see more sights etc.)
Mechanically trailer had some issues (mostly too heavy and several retries on airbag positioning. Truck had an origonal fuel pump replaced in Mexico (few strange intermittent cut-outs at very slow speed) but no issues otherwise.
Will update more as get time including lots of photos (edited)
