I missed the Welcome to CT sign I was gonna text it to you. I think you're another hour or two past where we went. The car wasn't too far from Newton on 84.

Yeah, Newtown. I thought you were still quite a drive from there. I got 11mpg for the whole trip.

Oh, and I need to buy my own god damn trailer. I'm so sick of borrowing garbage. This one had no trailer brakes (surprise, surprise) and I had to rewire the plug because it was wrong.

That would be a high deck.
Maybe fold down fenders?

My father-in-laws trailer has that ability... It's really nice to not have to worry about the doors hitting or having to leave a window open so you can climb out/steer on the way up the ramps.

You know I've looked at so many I can't remember if this is removable fenders or not...but I can make them removable. I'm going to call the place anyway before I order so I can ask. haha

My old man wants to cheap out, but there's no point in buying a POS trailer instead of borrowing POS trailers, so I gotta get him to agree on one. If not I'll just buy the damn thing myself, but he will be done borrowing my truck if he doesn't go 50/50 with me on a trailer.

Get an aluminum one - haha.

You know checking out trailer places on line - there is a place right up the road in Concord.

Speaking of that - I need a truck dammit.

I see Kaufman is a huge trailer place in NC...I don't think that was Concord though, I would have remembered that.

My buddy in the auction business just got stuck with a trailer that didnt sell last night. It's clean and well-built, but it looks a little heavy duty for what I want to do. I want to run it across a scale and see what it weighs.
