Grant asked me to posat these pics 4 him since hes in Iraq right now.
That's a nice trailer! I wonder what's in the box...
That´s a huge trailer! Is that really legal ? If the cops sees someone with a trailer like that here in Sweden they´ll get a heartattack .
now how long is that trailer? looks like somewhere between 26' and 32'
I will venture and say 26' or 28' no more.
I want that
he he he, venture a ya want.. :-P the deck is 27 feet long, the pop up is another 5, so its 32 feet long with out the neck....
nothing is in the box as of now, but my tools will be. i have to move some things around a bit before i make the trip from Eugene Oregon to Camp Pendleton CA. i will be putting air bags on the dodge, and it has an exhaust brake on the way along with some extra gauges. for now i will leave the dodge stock.
is it legal? yes, is it fun to drive? ask my dad he says no, but he hit a forlift with it and the mail box. ask me and i will say i dunno about THAT trailer, but i have driven bigger and dont mind.
the dodge drives great my dad told me loaded the way it is, but i wil be making an air break for the front, he says its hurting mileage big time, and i can see why.
i have to thank nick for posting them up for me. those of you who want it... TOUGH. its mine, fair and square.... i worked my ass off for it, i deserve it i think.
i will keep yall updated as to how it rides and everything. my estimated trailer weight is about 13k right now, truck is another 6.5k.
thanks again Nick. Drinks on me when i get back.... in 37 days or less
A fiberglass dome top thing from a semi truck mounted on top of your trailer tounge may work.
While you are at it, find a sleeper cab and outfit that huge box. You could put an apartment in there. Nice set up.
im going to put the tools in it and then was thinking of a bunk bed of some type. maybe insulate the box as well. that will all come in time though. the origonal plan was a slide in, but i wanted storage area and work shop as well, now i have it, and with a bunk bed i can get both. ill post pics as it comes along, but i still have to get back to the states first...
as for an air dam, i think i may have a fix, ill enclose in front of the box with an extension of some type and then put a wing on the truck.
i dont know for sure yet though...
mine is 22' on its flat part. I never include the frame forarwd fron that in my measuring. I like the deck above wheels better than between.
no no, the pop up isnt the coupler area, its the tail end. or the dove tail. i bought a dove tail with pop up so i have more useable flat area. with the fold flat ramps and pop up i can spread the load out a bit and still use the last 5 feet of trailer. total length is about 41 feet from coupler to tail lights.
i am very eager to go play with everything, but i have to wait a bit... it sucks. but i have time.
Sweet - just makes me want a trailer that much more!!
der I knew that lol been an off day I guess. I forgot that the trailer had a beaver tail.
Every since my bumper pull trailer was stolen a couple weeks ago, I've been dreaming of getting a 32 footer gooseneck - shame to waste the money on another short bumper pull when I really want a long gooseneck. I just wish insurance had covered the lose - I'm starting from $0.
that does suck man. sorry to hear that. i got a good price for the trailer through Kaufman trailers(Sp?) out of texas. they were great to work with, delivered early, and helped my folks out with puting the trailer on the dodge. great company, and from what i have been told great work, as i have yet to see it in person.
lol your not buying me any drink biotch! You just got back from Iraq Im buying you a few
ok, you twisted my arm enough....
you are driving...
your group have a new party favor?
