    Yep- everything's Pressure Treated and all galvenized fastners! Cost a small fortune to make but they're heavy duty sides!

    Hah, i bet. I just used those weatherproof screws for everything. Still holding up great. How high is it from the floor to the top?

    Matt it looks great. The truck will pull it fine, you plow snow with the truck for christ sakes. I dont understand some of these guys, its a work truck.


    Good luck this coming season matt :drinkup:

    That's what I figure- if the truck can push a 900LB plow across the ground with 1,500LBS + of snow infront of it (TONS of friction)- I think it'll be fine pulling a 10K load (trailer has brakes, truck has brake controller- both my trailers have brakes)- I agree!

    You too man!

    trucks can tow all they want, getting them to stop is another thing. You will be fine with brake controller. Your truck is made to tow, so people who say it ruins one to tow with it are idiots

    Nope, but i do keep my yard waste in there. Anything from grass clippings, leaves, brush. THat stuff stays in there until i fill up the dump to the top. Most of the time its for a month so i'm sure that doesn't help. Then all the banging up in there from the firewood doesnt help either. I already painted it, so i don't know if they'll do anything about it. You think if i call they would reimburse me for my supplies? anything?

    x2 on the truck thing. The truck will pull it without a problem. I'm pretty sure you have a brake controller, if not, don't pull the trailer without it. Test it out on a side street. Unplug your trailer and try stopping it with a load in it. Its very hard and if you hit a bump or something in the road, the abs with kick in and your up a creek without a paddle lol
