Finally, after 15 years of pining for my own trailer and always bumming my buddys' trailer(s), I put down a load of cash on a new trailer a week ago and it is being custom built for me and should be finished next week! I will use it for a pickup truck, since I have the K5 and a G20 Van so neither is real useful for hauling things... I buy and sell old cars occasionally too so roadtrips to pick up cars will be in the works, but the biggest use I see for the trailer will be hauling the K5 to the trails so that I don't have to worry about tearing it up and not having a ride home. I've always driven my trail truck to the trails and luckily have only gotten stranded once, but now I won't have to worry about it! So I probably went overboard, although I Love Overkill, and bought a 9000# GVW trailer with dual 4500# axles, 4 wheel brakes, a 16' wooden bed with a 2' dovetail, black with chrome wheels and slideout ramps that slide into the back of the trailer. For now I'll be pulling it with the G20 Van, which I just finished prepping with a trailer brake controller and the 7-pin 'new' connector. I bought a hitch lock set for when it's sitting, but am thinking of buying one of those wheel locks too that goes through the wheel and also locks a lugnut. I'll have it insured for what I've spent on it, but still I don't want some assclown making off with my trailer. I've towed a lot of trailers but don't have a lot of experience towing with this much weight. Being a new trailer with new tires and new heavy tires on the van it should tow real nice, although the springs on the back of the van are a little weak after carrying around a high-top conversion van for 170,000 miles. So that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!!! Pictures to come as soon as I bring it home! EDIT: I just brought it home tonight! I Love It! It's exactly what I wanted and I'm really excited... My tie down straps are ordered so as soon as they get here I'll haul round the old Oldsmobile just for fun!!!
