    New trailer....

    to be used for hauling snowmobiles, 4 wheelers, and motorcycles....

    Turn the wheel the opposite way you want the trailer to go

    Nice trailer now add some Pit Bull chocks (support the local economy )

    Oh yeah.....well...growing up in a farming community I was driving heavy equipment before I could walk.

    Ok...that might be a bit of an exaggeration.

    The easiest way for me to back a trailer is to think of the bottom of the steering wheel turning in the direction you want to go.

    yeah easier said than done with me BUT I've been told it's easier to back up a larger trailer than those lil bitty ones so I have hope "maybe"

    I wanna get those that you ride up into waiting to see if a friend is gonna fabricate me some so I don't have to spend a fortune on them

    there are lights along the top of the side walls and the floor is painted with that grippy stuff... I'm gonna leave the side walls as they are.. the paneling is easy to wipe down

    however I do need to cut out the gas door openings so that they are useful.. the other fella didnt' have a need for them so he just put the paneling up and never cut the skin out for them...

    Wish it would have had the vent in the celing as well.. but I can't have everything

    I too grew up on a farm but my daddy gave up on teachin me how to back up the hay trailer tractors aren't all that easy to steer backwards anyways

    Nice tip on the bottom of the steering wheel that'll be easy for me to remember.

    I'd probably never haul it to Grattan unless a few folks from Detroit would wanna meet up to carpool out... I'm a couple hrs away from them so highly doubt that.. so unfortunately I'll have to figure it out on my own or just do like I already do and make sure I don't pull in anywhere where I can't just pull straight through

    thats actually the best way. I had a tractor trailer instructor tell me he still has to think about which way to turn it before he starts to back up.

    Speed drives the big guys for a living, not sure if he'll be at grattan but I'm pretty sure Hammer and Abtech can both drive them and will both be there. Bring some cones with ya, I'm sure they can set up a nice little course for ya.


    thats a pretty sweet trailer.

    that'd be cool... I'll have to take someone up on that idea.. even if I have to try it with the little one

    for extra incentive to do it right instead of cones we'll use bikes j/k

All of our cross country trucks had pretty stretched wheelbases, so I was use to a longer tractor, but at 37' it just didn't turn as nicely as 23' with an air driven 5th wheel.

    You can get a pair of roof vents installed for a couple hundred bucks.

    Abtech you will appreciate this: I used to "Piggy Back" a 32 foot Swing Ride with a 26 foot Fun Slide with a 9 speed single axle. It was not a lot of fun to say the least, but that was actually easier then the 26 foot Prize Truck (Box Truck) with a 28 foot Water Race Game. That thing was a pig to back up, especially with the fact that its power steering used to go out all the time.

    The best was I was hauling a 1200 KW generator (use that on your tire warmers!) and the brakes failed on the stake bed truck I was hauling it with and I had to use the electric brakes from the trailer the whole trip from Milwaukee back to Chicago.
