Finally home to wonderful Texas. Florida was interesting and I'd have no problem living there but no place like Texas. Came home to discover Shiner has come out with their 100th anniversary beer. Brewed in the robust German "stark" style.

There's nothing FINER than an ice cold SHINER :drinkup: PROSIT!

I don't have much good to say about American beer in general, but ShinerBock is an old time favourite of mine.

Happy 100 to Shiner!

You'd like this one then. It's a rich BOCK. Wonder if I could send one (or six) to you by ground?

Trade him for Brador Extra XXX. A 11% Pilsner.

Nice to be back but FL has much to offer. RVs everywhere. A land made by fire and water.

Look at this post I just came across. I'm searching for a trailer on Craigslist to start packing to move.

Still working on it. Did not spend any time with it on my trip. Too busy doing other stuff. Took an awesome fly casting lesson from a guy on Punta Gorda. I do need to get on the new toy. I'm taking it with me to my auditor CEU class in Austin next week.

Not too bad but seagoville isn't close. The other has an ac and generator. I'd prefer a 12' single axle though. I drive a 6 cyl.

Also Wells Cargo is a better trailer than a PACE. PACE is a great picante sauce though.

I believe so: we got turned on to a guy that has a clientele here that shows up once a week with the freshies. They are beheaded, we de-vein them. They freeze well, season ends this month, hoping to get enough to bring north and share.

His ad says "R&J Trailers, Inc. is a family-operated business located just southeast of Dallas, TX at:
308 S. Hwy 175, Seagoville, TX 75159."

I never mapquested it to know exactly where it is at. They have many different trailers, since they are a dealer.

There are several on Ebay, if you want a single axle smaller trailer. I was just pointing out that the used 24' on Craigslist might be overpriced at $8500. if you can buy a new one for much less. I know the AC and Gen add to the price, and also the quality might not be as good as a Wellscargo.

I will look around a little and see what I can come up with......

Wellscargo is a cool rig; the fact that it's got a genset & AC is a big plus, but we don't know what kind of gen set and I'm too lazy this late to look at the roof air, but it looked like a Coleman, but what age and how many hours on the gen set and what brand? These are things we should know. Other than axles, wheel bearings and brakes, not much goes wrong with trailers.

I appreciate your help TriLawn. Biggest headache in moving and downsizing 28 years of business and Dallas life is the paperwork that has to be retained. I figured I'd get a cargo trailer and fill it up with the papers I have to keep and as time goes on dump those that I no longer need for IRS reasons. Then my daughter's stuff is another headache. She has done pretty good at unloading some stuff. Took 10 years to convince her to let go of the stuffed animal collection. She still has prom dresses and things like the entire Star Trek NG trading card collection. I'm trying to move from a house to a 900 sq ft townhome or condo. Over the next two months I need to sell three properties, transfer the proceeds to several Fort Collins rentals and a place for myself which will eventually become a rental as well. Restart my business. Full plate of other stuff as well. Getting my daughter off to England for her masters, putting together two web pages, www.irrigationandwaterconservation.com, and www.texasirrigatorsforum.com. Retooling the pigtail biz. I'm an idea a minute. Now that my brain isn't troubleshooting irrigation problems it has run amuck.

I may do that. Am I right that a moho can be treated similar to real estate? Deduct interest on returns? I wonder if the govt would allow a real estate transfer to a moho. To avoid taxes you have one year to buy new real estate with your proceeds from a previous sell. I'll get John Jr to advise. He is a wiz at this stuff.

I agree John Jr is on his game, but I have a little to chime in. The real estate transfer is a 1031 exchange. I have a lot of commercial and residential rentals and have exchanged properties before with no capital gains. There are a lot of rules and you are required to have an intermediary.

I saw this link for a 1031. (http://www.1031exchangemadesimple.com/)

Thanks ARGOS. You can chime in anytime. Can a 1031 be used on a moho? I'll research and give my 2cents.

Well no they can't

What constitutes "investment property?" Any number of real estate products qualify, Mangham says, including a rental house, a condo at the beach or even a self-storage facility, as long as it is "real property" - meaning land and all that is attached to land - and the property is not your primary residence. Boats, motorhomes, time shares, and recreational vehicles do not count as real property under the tax code.

It was awhile ago we did it it, but I believe if it's a "place of residence", it matters not what it is; boat, etc.

I think you want to look at the dividing line between "real property" and "tangible property"

A house, a condo, a recreational vehicle, a yacht and a manufactured home would all be eligible for first or second home mortgage interest deduction if having proper living accommodations such as a bathroom, sleeping and cooking facilities, unless you are subject to the alternative minimum tax.

Also unless you are selling you personal property for a profit of more than $250,000.00 if you are single, $500,000.00 if are married and have been for more than two years, you will have no capital gains tax on the profit from the sale of your personal real estate property. You probably already knew that but just in case.
