just don't eat the first batch of homemade biscuits....

Looks really good!!

I've considered buying a trailer from them, what did it run you if you don't mind? (You can pm me if you'd like) And are you in the south? Locations aren't shown on the mobile version.

Very nice... does the ramp get slippery with paint on it? I have no skid strips on mine.

Just a word of warning with the nose; Don't jack knife the trailer, your rear bumper will push in the nose. I had thought of getting one myself but the trailer guy warned me about that propblem. We have to jack knife the trailers into their parking spots at the warehouse.

Stereo with a frig almost like a go-to place when out in the open sun for hours at a time on long jobs. Plus you have a place to take a leak or if it gets bad, you can keep a bucket with some plastic shopping bags for when it gets real bad.
You boys up north got to man up it ain't that hot and who stands around in his trailer unless it is raining.
