    Default New toy hauler!!!

    All right well I went and picked up my 28' gooseneck trailer on Friday. I was like a kid at Christmas let me tell you.!!!



    Just a basic trailer but the price is right!!.

    Then on Saturday I built a pedistal for the camper to sit on. It needed to be off the trailer deck by about 8" to clear the exhaust or so I thought.

    Not pretty but it does what I want/need.


    And my helper taking a break.

    Then on Sunday I went down to where the camper was being stored. I had a plan and for once stuff worked the way I wanted it to. The front jacks had the swingouts for a dually truck. They JUST cleared the fenders.

    The rear how ever would not fit so I removed the jacks and used a floor jack with a old railroad tie and rolled that on the trailer. I even worked and the camper didn't fall over.!!


    So nosed it forward and set it on the platform I had built. It worked out great!! I was just amazed at how well it worked.



    Got it home and realized that the front drivers side jack was in the way of the landing gear crank.

    So off the the front jacks. Don't need them anyhow the rears stablize it fine. Look at that back porch!!


    And when it is all said and done I still got all kinds of room for my Jeep and Harley.

    You, sir, are a genius! That's the best idea since sliced bread.

    As I scrolled down the post, every photo made me more and more jealous. That is a sweet setup. Are you going to rig up some kind of storage under the side of the camper to make use of that space and maybe hold the tools and spare parts?
