Most of the time, I'll probably use the Ford. Once in a while, I'll use the Cub or the GTV/16.

Sounds good. The lift surprised me by working so well. If you need some measurements or whatever, give a shout,

If you were smart, you would paint it with kamelion paint so it blends in with its surroundings. :D

Casey, Rustoleum makes color changing paint in rattle cans. Thought about it. Make it a rainbow trailer!

I worked over the Sketchup drawing to show more of what I ended up with. I didn't put in all the bracing as yet, just more of the framework.

Thought it may help folks understand it better.

Got the welding finished up. Started squirting on some paint, Rust Reformer. That will keep things at bay until I can do it on up.
