    Robert Miller, The 1.4 million is for a mobile home (Park model mobile). Yes, I guess “mobile home” may not adequately define it. Thanks for posting.

    I don’t feel to bad with a score of 8. The Titanic Museum and Peggy’s Cove through me a little, but my time in Coast Guard was useful for several of these. Happy Camping to All.

    jerry cooney, No there are 60, 10 per axle side. The inner duals are held on with the nuts holding the outer. You got a great score anyway. Thanks for sharing your score with us. That question was on #11.
