I would like to pull a enclosed trailer with 2 harleys in it behind my barth. I am wondering if it will pull it ok with no problems to my bus, also if i will need a trailer with brakes. I sure hope it will pull the load ok as i'm looking forward to camping in my barth bus and riding my harleys. 350 motor/400trans

I used to tow a 28 foot fiver with a 350 Camper Special. No trouble, not even Baker grade or Chiriaco Summit. Be sure you have a good trans cooler and a good fan clutch. An Edelbrock Performer manifold and cam will help. So will Doug Thorley headers and free flow muflers. The weight of your Barth and the trailer is probably less than a lot of bigger 454 coaches, and lots of them pull boats or toads.
