    Deckover? No thanks.

    Nice trailer, but I would have looked for a similar lowboy.

    Ick, low boys are not wide enough and I dunno, they just don't look as strong, I've owned both. You look at the 12" I-Beam on mine, and compare it to the 5" c-channel on the low boys...

    Yeah I know, can't get the HO in Cali before 2004, wasn't smog legal. Nothing some injectors and a fueling box can't handle /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Well the forking bank forgot to fax all the loan papers and then they closed like 2 minutes later so I have to wait for Monday for them to fund but as long as the guy doesn't sell it out from under me I should be good to go /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I have thought about that, too. Right now I don't think I have enough tow rig. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I have been thinking about doing the Redneck RV w/a Cabover PU camper on the GN. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I don't have enough tow rig either, that's why I've got a 20' trailer and one trail rig for the time being.

    I have the plans but with how much steel prices went up I can't really justify spending the same cost on one I can buy already built /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Oh, got the trailer today after 20 solid hours of driving, left at 6 this morning and just got back at 2:15am /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    That is kinda what I am thinking, too. Cheaper to buy one. Just one of those things that I keep kicking around, though. It is a sickness...Wanting to build everything. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
