  1. Depends on where you want to put it. As an avatar, you will need to shrink it down. As a signature, I think the link above will work. For general use, the above link definitely works.
  2. Ian, that's what a Trailer Saver looks like when it's on it'slast legs. Time to start saving up.
  3. Some gauges are calibrated to read in thousands of pounds load. Otherwise, known weights, a loader to move them around, and some time.
  4. Hasn't been so far. Our Canadian Costco Mastercard was refused again last winter. Unless this is a new development.
  5. No chance of motorhome, no chance of Private Truck. Commercial truck only. Probably with a CDL to accompany it. High registration fees, high insurance.
  6. They're very happy to take your fee money, if that's what you mean. As far as registration, they're not particularly.
  7. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. More times, if needed. There isn't a board member here that needs to worry about chains. The skill level isn't there to drive with them on, never mind install them properly so they don't tear up the rig. Even installed properly, there's a knack to driving with them on. You can tear a driveline up if your too aggressive, they wear tires faster,. Professional drivers up here get paid extra, if the have to chain up, there's a reason for that. You won't be installing them in a clean, dry, well lit area. Rather, you'll be on the side of the road, with traffic jostling for the same spot you're in, to place or remove the chains. Pay attention to the weather, be ready to pull over and spend some time waiting. You think waiting is boring? Wait until you're sitting in a wreck, waiting on the tow truck. Talk to your local body shop for big rigs, ask them what a typical jackknife repair runs. Your truck repair will be lower, because your trailer isn't as hard or heavy as a freight trailer, but your trailer repairs will be way higher.

    Custom bed / bumper.

    Feeling adventurous? With the exchange rate, a Canadian shop can save you a bundle. The contact link to the shop that built our bed is in our footnotes.
  9. Confession time. Our kids were too old when IM and texting took off, and with too much oilpatch exposure, the first time I seen it, my (dirty) mind went to "fornicate an object, fornicate you".
  10. Sigh. For the older generation, Fixed That For You. Hahaha!
  11. Not the first time someone has sniffed down their nose at the blue collar crowd, and it won't be the last, Glenn. Just wish we could all make our way with a tie firmly in place.
