    Good Price?

    I agree with Lavarock. The price is fair--especially if it has a top.

    pimp my ride (er trailer?)

    Tongue weight really isn't a problem. The duece box is really light sheet metal. Even with several chains in the box the trailer tows nice and straight--even empty.

    Could someone post a photo of an M1102 behind a civy pickup truck? I am contemplating buying one of these trailers and want to see if it's a practical trailer for a 3/4 ton truck. These are shorter right? Do they tow well? Last question. Are these beginning to be released to the public in...

    Welding with ear protection?

    Gainesville Fl

    Shannon, Gainesville is a common place for retirees. I am not too familiar with offroading areas, but I'm sure they are few and far between here--especially compared with California. I'd like to see that C30 of yours. Steve
