That is a nice trailer and the price is great do they have a website

Really nice trailer. How long did it take them to build? How was the design process? Are you near them or did they do everything via fax/email/ phone?
Did they present you with full color renditions prior to purchase? Or did you know exactly what and how you wanted? Also, what color is that, Hunter Green?
Thanks,
Really a great trailer!!

Thanks!! I went to the local dealer and took him a drawing and all the specs and they gave me a price. It was pretty painless to say the least, I talked to several trailer dealers and no one wanted to do it without charging me at least 4000.000. Others also acted like they could care less when I would get it as well. It took them 12 working days and I did go pick it up (170 miles) so I didn't have to wait another 2 weeks to get it delivered.The paint is John Deere green

Thanks and that really is a great looking trailer. I also was wondering where are you going to put your license plate???

Guess I'll start the search for a custome dealer around me!!
