Default Ironmans tow rig and toys




This is a pic of my 40' Haulmark trailer and my 04.5 Dodge Dually and the Jeep and quads. This is the Blueberry Hill campground in Canada where GLFWDA stays for Gitchee Gumee.



This is my other outfit which I use for short trips when I dont need the white whale.

We have relpaced the dingle berry lights with the new fancy tube style lights. The dingle berries always filled with water when it rained, and it always rains when we go camping!

Very nice, how much do you have invested , can you sleep in there and did you buy it that way or do some of the work yourself ?? Sorry one More question. Are you ironman from Ironman fab? do you build axles? I have a slightly bent D30 (damage is to short side) I would like your opinion, could you or another place (clyde's frame) repair it? damage is minimal . I have drove a few thousand mile now with no problems. Thanks for your time.

Yes, I own Ironman Offroad. Clydes frame can straighten your axle! It is funny you ask this question at this time, another friend of mine is taking a D30 to Clydes to get it straightened and we just talked about it today.

And to answer your questions about my trailer, I bought it with the awning and Air Cond. checkerboard floor, flourescent lighting and cabinets. I then put in a double stainless sink, fridge, 25 gallon fresh water tank w/12 volt pump, king size bed, 2 burner propane cooktop, out side shower, 20 # propane cyl., and a stereo with CD player. It also has what is called a sprint car kick up, which means 2' of extra height in the rear where the Jeep sits.

As far as what I have invested, I lost track but it is not as much as you would think. I will say less then $25,000

Let me ask you a question, what happened to your missing arm?

And in case anyone wonders....that price only includes the trailer....not the Dodge or CJ

I don't think that is hard to do now days. Look at BDR, The Harley Powerstroke Super Duty, The Rubicon and that aluminum trailer.........I know his house is worth more than those cause of his area....but think of the house you could buy here out in the country for that money.

When I get to old to Jeep I am going to get an Amigo with a lift kit and a 6' baby Haulmark trailer to pull it behind my mini truck. I will be the envy of the old folks home!
