If the club springs for it, I think Mike volunteered his yard since he can use it to store some of his unregistered rigs.

That would be the ultimate test of my trailer backing skills. I'll give it a shot though.

It can be kept at my place. I have plenty of room. I would not want this to last for years, but I would be happy to keep it for "a while."

Think about it, if they are willing to pay some storage rent. Perpetual income is never bad. ;-)

Yes, hmmmm; it could offset the cost of that new Kenwood TS-2000X...

My experience has been the longer the trailer, the easier it is. But I've never backed something that long, so what do I know. OTOH, tiny trailers you can manually "correct" are probably the easiest.. or at least the easiest to get out of whatever corner you've backed yourself into.

If this gets real serious then maybe someone with the "powa" could move the related posts to a new RS trailer thread or something ...

My question...to really tow that thing with 4 40's on it wouldn't a person really need a dually? That has got to be a ton of weight just in the trailer...Throw on 4 40s (if that many would fit) and - My FIL has that Dodge V10 w/ gooseneck that he routinely tows a horse trailer with but towing that car hauler with 4 40s on it...Oh my

I assume trailers are insurable? Heaven forbid it's wrecked, or something, we would owe the club. If Mike will be hauling it, it should probably be in his name. Wonder how much that costs?
