    You Know Winter is Coming.....When

    Went out and purchased a 5 x 8 trailer this afternoon....convinced my 90 year old mom to go half in with me....told her it would make it easier this winter{when she is down at youngest sister's in Naples, Florida} for me to drag both Snow Blowers back and forth, as well as get the lawn mowers{I use for both yards}between her place and mine....her quote "Don't BS me, I'll go half, but it's in your name, and you can pay the License fee and expenses"....well Hell that worked, now I have a haul trailer to drag the tw and coolers, etc, to Cripple Creek and the Shelf Road, next Summer...

    13" tires, Mesh Bottom, which I will reinforce with an Oak slab{still a lot cheaper than buying it that way} I am ready to Haul Ass....

    That's the same trailer I bought last year......... So far it's logged 4,500 miles.. Next week hope to put on 5,000 more miles. You'll like it. The only thing I ended up doing was have the tires machine balanced.. OMM.

    Cool, but don't BS me.....90 yr old. Gotta love it.... Good deal, Way to go...!!

    Yeah, I was going to strip my pop-up camper thats old and tired instead of selling it. Has new bearing and tires though. Could make a really nice 5'x8' flat trailer out of it for the price of 1 and 1/2 sheets of 3/4 plywood. But, why bother. I found a real nice hitch hauler for $95 shipped on Amazon. Great reviews, holds 500lbs. Much better for me. But, my brother in-law is most likely going to get a TW very soon, like as soon as we find one for a good price within 3 hours or so away. So, now I'm thinking the trailer may be better for us. He would end up paying to convert it. I don't know, I really want it out of my driveway. Aaarg, what to do? More restless nights thinking about it...

    Popups make good utility trailers! Coleman's were the best! Just sold mine after years of use and abuse.
    My Daddy Don *always said about me " if you didn't over load your trailer you didn't load it".
    * not my daddy. He is a very good friend that took me into the family. Another neighbor started calling him that, trying to be hurtful. So we embraced and use it lovingly.
