Everyone wants to live in FL. It helps with recruiting for the local schools. Does that fade away look familar to anyone? How about the name?

This lawnturd is sitting courtside by the way.

Yes.... he is mahogany. Great dog. I have owned boxers since I was roughly 10 years old.

It is very full. The original axle went out last spring and we switched over to the 5k axle to ensure we would not have any more issues. But yes - the trailer is very very full but the floors are clean and we generally have everything we need laid out neatly and effectively so we can be as effecient as we can on the job.

Had a lab for a couple of month. Very great looking pale yellow that a client went and paid a fortune for. She was allergic and asked if I would want to take him since my son's ideal dog is a yellow lab. I take the dog and after he eats two couches, a set of curtains, about 3 pair of shoes, a good section of carpet in my sons room, my son's brand new comforter for his bed as well as his sheets and a whole in his new mattress.....the lab puppy is now roaming freely on a farm in Lake county.

man, love this thread already! Love the basketball pic!

I'm looking to pick up a trailer for summer maintenance crew. Yours looks like the epitome of efficacy!

Would you mind sharing the length/width build etc.

I think I would like to go for a single axle because 1) you have less tire on the ground. = less drag. 2) Fewer tires to replace 3) generally they are lighter 4) you can rotate them by hand.

A lot of people say to get the biggest trailer you can use. While there is some merit to that. To me it seems you should get the one that best serves your means and uses the lest amount of space for the reason stated above. Plus if I ever needed to have the trailer pulled by a 1/2 ton, a smaller single axle would suit the trucks capabilities much better.

How much did replacing the axle with a 5,000 axle run you? I think that's the route I would go If I was hauling two ZTRS etc.

Worse comes to worse and you have to buy a bigger trailer. You can sell yours (they don't deflate much) and buy a bigger one or just have two trailers.
