Default Trailer update

So got the new axles welded in. Started the decking today. Holy...like 130 holes to drill and stick bolts in.





Then found out that the lug nuts I had wouldn't work with the rims so I had to get new, but here is the blingage trailer rims and new ters cuz I don't think it would track well with the setup in the above pics.:tonka:



Then me and the boy took it all back apart to for staining and waterproofing of the wood. Still have to weld up the fenders, wire everything, and adjust the tongue jack because we lowered the trailer about 12 inches so the tongue jack is too long now.

Why don't you want to flat tow any more? and I still see that van in the Background, did you ever get money out of the guy that rear ended you?

I can't wait to see how it hauls. I'm wondering how it will haul a trailer compared to the van.

Might be a picture angle problem, but you want more room under those fenders.
