Very nice, I'm not sure if this has been asked before but what is the overall length? what is the wheel base?

sorry it took so long to reply. had to send my son to body shop to measure wheel base. wheel base is 332 1/2" . motorhome is 45' long. it's a tandem axle with a tag axle between steer axle and front tandem. so it has a total of 4 axles.
