My thoughts exactly. We could probably negotiate a good price, use it for Rubithon/Moab, then clean it up and sell it in the fall to recoup the expense.

Who else is in?

I could do that. How are we going to tow it out there?

Treeroot has a 40 AND a tow rig. C'mon Mike!

if it's going on my truck, then you'll also need to get the gooseneck hitch from uncle ben, a rear airbag suspension, an intercooler and a lot of patience, cause you won't be going anyhwere real fast

The 5th wheel hookup is $1,600 for my Duramax. My dad just priced them last week. I could store it as long as it is legal. One of the ways I can keep the city off my ass is to put all my unregistered vehicles on a registered trailer

Why don't you guys form a RS trailer sub-committee? Someone step up to lead, then propose the club buy the trailer, then get it. You all (those wanting to trailer a rig to Rubithon) then personally chip in and buy Mike the 5th wheel hookup, plus help with fuel. Mike also gets to use it to take his & his dad's 40's to Moab. I don't have a 40, or a rig that needs trailered, but I'd still vote in favor of that, even if the club took a small hit on the resale.

Or heck, the club already owns one trailer, maybe it just needs to own another one capable of hauling vehicles? only real issue is storage & having a club member with a truck capable of pulling the thing.. but sounds like those may be doable? Or just sell the trailer after Rubithon and give the $$ back to the club. Mike keeps the 5th wheel stuff, you all still come out way ahead on transport.

x2. Sounds like a great plan Tim!

Do we have 4 people with 40's willing to do this? Sounds like Chris, Mike and I are game, and if Mike is willing to pull it. Mike, is your dad thinking about Rubithon? How about Matt F.? Timmbuk?

I wouldn't need to trailer to Moab, but someone else could fit on there.

My only interest in this is seeing some of my buddies save some money, and get a 5th wheel attachment. I think you'd be better served if your chairman actually had a 40.. hey wait doesn't our club treaurer own a 40? He was thinking of taking it to Rubithon too, if he could economincally trailer it.. that'd be my vote.

As part of the deal we can just chip in for a storage facility. It's only for a few months.
