Default X-mas present to myself

So I decided that I was tired of borrowing my fathers open car trailer anytime I needed to haul a vehicle. So I was searching for a 24' enclosed trailer with a 7' opening to get my Bronco into.
I called around and a new one would run me about $10,500.00
Little pricey for my needs.
I found this one on e-bay. Made a couple bids and won the auction for $5500.00
It's a 2005, 5500 lb axles with brakes on both. clean, 8' ceiling height and 7'6" door opening.

Merry Christmas to me!

Sweet. Is it close to you? A long drive would suck but still worth it.

Very cool. Slap some cots and some heat in it.

Default Trailer

Funny thing was, the guy lived 3 miles down the road from me. So even sweeter!

It has some D-hooks on the side walls, so I was thinking hammocks rather than cots!

I bought a Gorilla 8000lb winch with a wireless remote to add to it, just incase my Jeep buddies need some way to get their vehicles in the trailer!
Gonna add some storage cabinets in the front V-nose area to store the tie down straps. Might even throw a 15' awning on the side, just to cast some shade when I want to relax at a show or whatever.

Enclosed trailers rock. So many things you can do with them. I have one we use to camp in and everything else. Only problem is it is not big enough for a car :-( It is a snowmobile trailer.
