Looks like it's coming together... That's one long trailer, you are going to need a CDL to drive that thing You wouldn't happen to have an extra one of those Boggers would you?

Holy huge trailer!

A 3-speed wouldn't be a bad idea with all the weight that thing's gonna haul. Be sure to put a few extra leafs in the rear end. Traction won't be a problem with all that weight on the fifth-wheel.

It aint T...H...A...T... bit.... its 55 1/4 inches long, er... tall, depending on how your standin next to it... 9 inches wide... those are prety close to exact measurments, maybe off by a mm or two... aint it grand to have inches and milimeters in the same sentence? lol...

only problem with 3 speeds... ya gota shift.... i hate shiftin, my highlift showed me that... i guess setiin the shift positions would help, but im tired of fightin the lift.. so its on to my tower...

how many leafs do you think i should use? ive never hauled anything heavy before.

Dually is on the books, just have to wait and see... Chevy was a thought at the very beginnig, but decided on the ford because of the seperat cab from bed, as oposed to cutting the bed off of the clod, not a big problem, easy enough to do, but i dont like hurtin clod bodys.... New pic updates comming soon, im working on the trailer as we speak....

Ok gang, traile is prety much finnished... I took her out today, towed it around, it needs work on the hitch tho, im gona fix it, but she towed good, the xc truck had no prob with the 55 turn motor in it. Tried to actually tow with otehr cars but i need tie down points and the hitch isnt stiff enough yet, but in time, yes it will be. Now i am gona focus more time on the truck, and no the red chevy that towed it is not the tow rig. lol... i just wanted to test it. I will probably add a bit more to the trailer, im thinkin some sort of tire rack now, because i realized thatwith this type of trailer my bed space is limited... Well on to the pics, please excuse the inside pics again, i didnt have the camera out today, and tomrow i cant take towing pics, i fried the steering servo in the truck today taking it into a ditch with water... LOL. But the esc is fine, thats all thats important... Ok enough jaber, on to da piocs....














Yup thar she is, all dun up an perty like... Yall enjoy now... I will try and get some outside driving pics an what not soon. And if santa was happy, i might have a digi vid cam for christmas.

its not as bad as it looks. i havnt measured how tall yet, never occured to me. as soon as i fix the hitch, and actually mount it to the truck it needs to be on, i wont have that problem. Lexan bodys do not suport trailers good. lol.... but i think it will do fine, so long as i stay off of grass..... true storry.. it flipped.... but that was driver error... and maybe design error??? lol

not a bit story, i took it thorugh the grass, and every time it droped to cross the sidewalk the rear screw bolts hanging down on the rear hung up. but it flipped when i went for a wide turn in the drive way and the truck droped off the side and the trailer went over... i should really slow down... lol... it will be good when its fully finished.

no pic of the truck yet, still in the works, i mean i can take a pic, but it still looks like it does in my second pic post.... im gona try and wire up the motor tuesday, and that will be one thing out the way. then i can mount up the rear axle in about a week or so, i got my hub adapters from rc4wd, reall nice, but bigger than i thought, not wider, just massive.... i had no idea they were that big.... anyways, after i get the rear axle mounted i can work on the front, then its only amatter of time to fab up some type of rear bed and hitch... stay tuned....
