    We should start the swap in a few weeks. I hope to be able to retain the pintle hook option if possible so I can pull it with the 2 ton.

    I'll try to get some pics of the progress.

    No progress due to health issues. I'm going downhill fast, looks like I'll end up selling it as is to lighten the load.

    You can do this with ease if you by cuttin the tongue off and building a entire new tongue. We have done it many times!

    how about forming a trailer pool, local co-op, club, neighborhood association, with other trailer owners. you could then use whatever trailer you need as each member has.
