  • Seriously. I would hate to be traveling along and here a scraping noise coming from this in my rear view.



    It is an interesting way to get the trailer back on the road. Although I sure hope no one tries to load anything on it.

    • Are those your pics tn? Any more you can add to the story?

      If they only had the 2 boards then it may have made more sense to put the 2x4's on the sides, they would act more like a vertical beam that way. In the pic they are stronger horizontal than they are in a vertical load. 2 more boards, wider ones, and deck-screw them together after the strapping would have made for a more reliable trip back home with much less chance of testing the limits of liability of those involved when something goes wrong. And the way they have the trailer's winch hooked up is adding to the stress on their joint. I hope they and everybody on the road around them had good luck as the trip progressed

        • Here is one from near me. I love the description of the " Mint Trailer " . Especially the rust and the bad tires and mismatched wheels.

              The last suit you wear won't need any pockets. You might as well spend it on a boat.

                  I'm with you, drop a crate motor in, new outdrive and custom interior it would be a really cool boat. Before I get flamed I know it would cost huge dollars but this might be the one time you just might get it back. I suspect 40-50k would complete it. That boat completely finished would easily get your money back.

                    I agree. The 21ft versions are selling for 30k around here. 26ft offshore, man that would be a fun boat!

                          The ad says "life vest". I assume it is only one. But you only need one as nobody else will have the guts to go with you.
