    a buddy has a 32'gooseneck cattle trailer for $1000.he says it pulls 18 to 20 head easily.do you think this would make a good flatbed?maybe cut it down to say 25'?or keep it 32' and haul 2 rigs?it's got 3 compartmets maybe make 1 into living quarters?i don't know if my 3/4 ton powerstroke is up to that but it does have a gooseneck hitch i might be able to get a little $$ back by scraping the roof and walls,although i have no idea where to take it or anything.watcha think?

    i think you would go through more work than is needed. a bit of the structure is from the roof of the trailer. it would be a lot of work and cost a nich chunk in steel
