I was hearing some chatter on the CB yesterday about my "load", mostly poking fun at what a heavy haul it was... I took it with a sense of humor cuz even I thought it looked a bit silly :D

Doesn't look odd to me, except for the fact you didn't fill the whole trailer with new toys!

Hey, TD&H needs a trailer like that.  Just think how many tractors he could bring to plow day!

Actually I think he should've bought my old one...

That one had 50 feet of flat deck and towed like a dream but I couldn't use it for the loads I haul now so it had to go.

Wow, even with large GT's, that one would have held 14!

I miss that trailer as it was much more versatile than what I have now. I have plans in the works for another trailer that should be able to do a little bit of everything and make me happy again lol

I wasn't going to say anything about that, but since you did Alan......that deck should have been placed over the rearmost axle.  :bigrofl:
