Okay, so go wheeling tomorrow afternoon and come back to New Fun-Time Happy-Mill. It's a good plan...I'm glad to be a part of it.


If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

I've added shocks on customers' trailers but never mine...bump stops have not been necessary yet with any trailer. The multi-directional hitch should keep those leafs from flexing too much.

Elevation will get you every time . I would think some of the trails would seem much different with the Aspens bare .

Lol. Blind leading the blind.

I must say building a trailer is a bigger pain than most know, especially from scratch. Trailers aren't usually very pretty and making one look halfway decent is a difficult task. You're now a part of the not so secret society of trailer fabricators.

I'm glad you are finally done and can enjoy it now !

On a side note...met with the owner of Adventure Trailers, really nice guy. It was a pretty cool day
