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.

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
