    We cheated a little ;) It was about 70-80% of the way done with the fabrication sitting out back waiting for the right person :D It was just moved back into the shop and started working away at it again! We still have a whole other beam deck to build for it and lots of other minor finish work before it moves to the paint shop. :usa

    Looks good so far.I noticed a few changes from the older trailers like the jeep and the gooseneck.Why do you have the plate on the neck?I assume the 5th wheel is blocked what benefit is there to this?Is it getting disk brakes or drums?Are the hydraulics in the rear standard now?Anyways Keep up the pics.

    The plate on the neck...I am not sure what you are referring to.
    As for the 5th wheel, it is blocked for one reason...It is more stable when turning if the pivot point is on the gooseneck and not the jeep. When the jeep is going in a straight line is makes no difference, it only matters when the trailer is jack knifed or on a off chamber turning situation where the blocked pivot plate 5th wheel really helps.
    If it is left alone the trailer would want to lean to left or right if the 5th wheel is not blocked but with that pivot plate it still allows it to tilt but only forward and back not allow the deck to lean over.
    I hope I semi explained that because I think i might have confused myself a little there;)

    Yes this trailer is getting disc brakes with Airgo air inflation on all axles and the Hydraulics in the rear are not standard, it is a option but it will be on this trailer also.

    Hell its only money! Needs the renn script logo cut in to the tail and back lit red. Other than that looks like a bad assed wagon in the making. The airgo tire inflation is a GREAT option wish my old trailer had it, All the time spent checking tires and sticking them for pressures weekly would add up to a couple of days of time i could have spent sleeping or being lazy.
