Smuz's logistics.

Post by Smuz » Fri Jun 30, 2006 5:26 pm

So far I have to take to the meet:

1. Wilson the LJ10.
2. Mouser the LJ10.
3. Sleepy the LJ20.
4. Sancho the LJ80.
5. Whacker the Sidekick.
6. 31' Fifth wheel.

Mebbe. Barbie the X-90 (but prolly not).

Now Disney is 5 hours away. This may take me a bit.

Now Spooky old Alice ain't going, so I'm gonna have the trailer to myself. Jay (my son) is coming by himself, so he may sleep there too. Stevec is also welcome to bunk in there. Jimny also, but he'll haffa sleep with Steve. I got the main bed (mine and mebbe Jay's) and a full hide-a-bed (how friendly do ya think Steve and Jimny are?).

More updates as they come.
The above is my opinion. It is subject (like all my opinions) to debate, disagreement, rude gestures, and loud raspberries.

Jimny also, but he'll haffa sleep with Steve
Don't be starting any rumors!!! LOL

I'll be sleeping in my tent.


Man you have a lot of work ahead of you.

Are you bringing the V? Is that Sleepy?

Did you get the exhaust manifold on the V?

I'm trying to think of someone I know that has a long fithwheel flatbed trailer so that way you could haul maybe three at a time.

Yes
Did you get the exhaust manifold on the V?
Yes, and a right pain in the a$$ it was, too.
I'm trying to think of someone I know that has a long fithwheel flatbed trailer so that way you could haul maybe three at a time.
Here's the way I got it planned: 1) With a 3' extension on the trailer, I kin haul Mouser and Sleepy with Wilson in the truck bed. 2) Drop them off at a friends house by Disney, pick up his 16' trailer and head home. 3) Load Whacker on the 16' trailer for Shane to tow, Load Sancho on the little trailer for Jay to tow (mebbe with Barbie), Hook up to my camper, and we're off. 4) Get set up in camp and go get the others from my friends house.

Should work.

Oops is right! Got time to weld a little "extension" on the back of that trailer? Not like it has to hold that much weight!

Mmmhhhhh I don't know man, that might not hold it up! :wink:

Thank goodness you got these two weeks off to get things ready, thank goodness I HAVE this week off to get things ready.


Here is the pic of the roll bar. Let me know if you want it trimmed. It is really a roll cage. Notice the bolt holes in the sides, you will need to bring bolts to go through there. 5/16 size, 3 inches long. 8 of them.

Also I welded the rest to the floorboards etc so you will need to bring extra bolts (nuts etc) and a drill.

All you really need is a couple of heavy planks....and maybe a couple of chains... Ok, a little steel helps.

my extension works really well... except it needs to be fixed in place. Other wise the two try to kiss each other when the bumps get bad.

Time to do a "Poser Shot" on the trailer. Of course I think anyone complaining their trailer isn't big enough should have to give the extra to me, I could get three more on. I should have a 10, a 20, a 50 or better yet an 81(Steve).

You don't quite unnerstand. This is not the first time this trailer has been too small. It's merely the first time this trailer has been too small on something this LIGHT.

If'n I gonna extend it, I gonna extend it as heavy as the rest of the trailer.

BTW: the trailer bed is 17' x 8' and the whole thing weighs about 2800# empty. I figgure about 15K GVW.
