I bet. That is the only reason I hate winter wheeling, cold and salt.

I stopped on the way home, 3 miles away, at the quarter car wash to clean it and the trailer. The water instantly iced when it hit the trailer and buggy. Thankfully my garage stays pretty warm.

Had to get the buggy out of the garage to use the winch to help get my wifes uncles car moved in the driveway. Figured why the hell not, the 4 ft tall packed snow banks along the road and yard got nothing on the buggy . They make really good ramps. The snow through out my front yard is easily 2.5+ ft deep. All untouched powder. Not any more . Wonder what my neighbors think. The one across the street was shoveling his driveway while I was "plowing" last night.




Sold my open deck trailer a couple weeks ago, feels weird being trailerless. Search has begun for an encolsed trailer.

I liked my enclosed but it was just too big for my motorhome to pull. I'm not a baller with a big diesel pusher.

This....

Box truck worked good, but was incredibly uncomfortable to ride in. Traded it in on a f250 v10. Box truck did however get better mpg hauling buggy though. Both are v10s

Sold trailer to help fund an enclosed trailer. I will buy another open deck eventually, but mine was getting very very rusty.
