As most anyone who has a shop will say , I wish it was bigger but I am thankful for all that I have . And thanks on both accounts .

Its no dumpster , but it turned out pretty nice . And you got the first picture of it hitched up .

So after a bit of worrying about the inspection process the angry trailer passed with nary a problem. The State Highway Patrolman gave it a once over , checked to see that the vin was stamped in the proper place and then asked me "did you really build this"? That was nice to hear , and I told him yes except for the fact that I brought in a ringer for the paint and body work . I have had people all day long waving and pointing , its a little surreal . No videos were taken yet , so I dont have dumpster status .

It tows good , but wags a little at speed due to the fact that I have too much play in the multi axis hitch . I am going to re build it on the mill and get tighter tolerances over the winter . Until then I am going to run a bolt on traditional coupler .

Uploading pics now ...

Would it help the wagging to have it loaded with weight or is it solely the hitch that is the problem?

The mill/lathe combo is getting delivered on Saturday , at this rate I am going to have to build the back shop much sooner than later . I have a great wife and she lets me know if I need to be in the house or if I am free to go tinker .


The trailer sits just a little higher than the LJ which means it should be near dead level once its loaded .








I towed it about 40 miles on road and mile or so off road and it does fine other than a little wagging like I mentioned above . I am off to fix that after trick or treating tonight .

Love the fall colors over there! Don't get that on the left coast so much. Oh yeah, jeep and trailer look awesome too!

I have been there quite a few times and never took notice of that . But I guess the Seqouias , Redwoods and Pinyons dont change and they make up a large portion of the canopy dont they ?

I have some weight in it and that helps a lot , but it still wags . Sadly I didnt get the hitch accurate enough for traveling at higher speeds . Once the mill is set up I will machine new parts instead of my sawzall'd pieces

What's this "once the mill is set up" BS? You haven't gotten that done yet? FOR SHAME, SIR!
