    So here are a few more progress pics,Deck got flipped so it is gonna get strapped.They finished welding some of the stuff from underneath.and got the parts for the storage baskets for the deck.

Six have been built in the last 2 years and have one going through the paint shop as I type and one more In the fab shop scheduled to be done in October but we had to get started early because of another large project for the state of California, three Barrier Trailers http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/maint/workz...barr/index.htm. We have already built two of them back in 2004 and 2006 and just recently won the bid for three more....just hope the state has the money to pay us when it comes time with all this budget mess haha.
    now your going to need to add a special projects tab to the website where you can put this trailer and the flatbed you guys built back in the day.

    Well the barrier trailers we can not sell to anyone else because the state of California holds the patten on them. We can build them for the state or who ever the state sells them to and that's it, so not much point in advertising them too much.
    Yes it's true......I am now at Cozad!

    I don't look at it from a sales point i look at it as bragging rights.

    Special projects are just that, SPECIAL. they show a company's ability to preform out side their normal operating status and produce a top shelf product. especially in todays times its the small details that differentiate the winners and survivors from the also ran's.

    Just how i see it. Plus you could throw the trailers you built for euro export up there also with their 24V wiring system and euro spec lighting.

    As im sure you noticed any one can build lowbeds, but theres only one company that builds MURRAY lowbeds.

    not to highjack this great thread but it is true on what you pay for is what you get. buddy barry has 2 gravel trailers that are the same design but differnet price ranges. the cheaper one has only 1/2 the welds,(the rest of the welds were replaces with a silicone) no quality on the workmanship. wiring is exposed to the gravel rocks (no protection). the amount of work we do on the cheaper trailer every year is costing more then the more expense trailer because little work is done to it every year. plus on resale value the expense one will bring top dollar where the cheaper one will be given away.

    keep up the good work and of course more pictures.

    like your website chaz and will be joining your BB.

    We use a guy thats local here.He cuts it with a CNC plasma cutter we just give him the file for patterns or designs.I havent been there in a while but next time I go i'll try and take a couple of pics.

    So now the welders are working on the rear suspension got the booster and equilizer seperated,and stripped down and they are welding cutting and grinding like crazy.A couple more plates to weld on the main deck and it should be ready to get flipped back over to have the floors for the baskets welded in.The goose neck is pretty much done I think they order a couple of parts for it,and a little welding left and it should be done.Waiting for the fifth wheel and the tower will be done.Then work will start on the jeep .Here are a couple of pics of the last couple of days progress.
