    driving to one of my accounts yesterday i saw a new bright yellow corvette hauling a 16 foot trailer with a ztr and all his equipment on board. At first I thought that it was kinda strange and got a good laugh from it but then I started to wish I had that kinda vehicle to haul my stuff too!
    Anyone else see anything strange on the job?

    There's a Chevy 1500 long bed with cover, and extended cab that has a deep exhaust and is lowered a good deal, with smaller tires (not much smaller) and regular street tread, nice looking, anyhow i see it go by [my house] all the time, well one day it went past with a 16' or so tandem trailer with a Ford utility tractor and box blade. tractor was pretty far back, but it was sagging alot! i had to laugh at that..
    another one, a late 70's wagon with a small 40" x 48" utility trailer, with one push mower in the trailer, goes by all the time... these are the oddest i have seen yet, not the best stories....

    There is a guy around here that hauls a 6 1/2' x 16' tandem trailer with a zrt, Craftsman riding mower and a whole bunch of other stuff jammed on it using a small Ford Bronco II! The back end sags so much you can't see the tops of the rear tires! I do a doubletake every time I see that guy!

    3 wheel bicycle pulling small trailer with 22 inch murry and various weedeater brand hand held units..At first I chuckled but then thought to myself this guy is working and doing his best..He did this for a couple of years, I have not seen him in a year..for all I know he could be in a 2000 crew cab and have a couple of Z's..I have to hand it to him atleast he was trying his best and working..even if he was on wellfair and food stamps atleast he was not sitting on his duff..I hope he did well and has advanced, it would be a true sucess story...another odd one would be 2 old retired men in a 80's model chevy citation ( I hope I spelled that right) pulling a 5X10 single axle with a couple of 36's and various hand held equip:rolleyes:

    see if ur truck is lowered like that u need to put air shocks in the back. i did and it sure makes the ride better. everybody should think about it cause it keeps the rear from sagging when u pull a load.

    how bout a ford fiesta with 10 80# bags of quickcrete under the hatch, and five sheets of 3/4 inch plywood strapped to the roof. the shock had gone through the towers in the back by the way!

    Guy with an old old Chevy PU with a trailer so rotten. There were several peices of plywood scraps filling in the holes in the bottom of the trailer. Still lots of light shinning through to trailer floor.
