    I know that LT Rich isnt making the z-trailer anymore.
    Can someone e-mail as many pics from different angles of the z-trailer?
    I'm going to have one made over the winter.
    The welder I'm using is looking for lots of pics.

    Thanks.

    I talked to them a couple of weeks ago and asked about the trailer. I was told that they only make them upon request.

    I'm still thinking I'd rather build one.
    I cant find my old LT Rich catalog that had the pics of the thing.
    Can anyone help out here?
    Again I'm looking for as many pics from different angles as you may send.

    And where the heck can I buy swivel wheels?

    Thanks again

    Bob, couple of things to think about with that trailer. Because it hangs so far off the back, and doesn't turn like a conventional trailer ( when you turn ) you need alot of room on the side of you to turn.

    just think about when your on a busy road waiting to take a left into a street, and cars are going around you on the right to stay straight, as soon as you turn you rear end will be one lane over. Ive heard of many accidents with this type of trailer.

    I think you would be much better off with a smaller trailer instead of one of those, but its JMO

    So how you been?

    I purchased a Z trailer along with my Z spray 3 years ago. I love it. It is a tight fit for the spray unit, but you'll get use to it. Just take your time when backing the Z spray onto the trailer. You don't have to worry about making numerous attempts when backing. It is just an extension of the truck.

    I don't have pictures, but I hope you'll take my word for it.

    I forgot to mention that when I pick the Z spray and trailer up, Tom Rich met me half way between my home and Indianapolis to transfer the unit and trailer from his truck to mine (I live 60 miles east of Cincinnati in northern Kentucky). We actually met up in a parking lot of a truck stop along I74.

    I can't say enough about Tom Rich and his people.
