Yeah, not only do you get to transport more stuff, but you dont have to load/unload.

I don't mind loading, but unloading is my least favourite part of the hobby...

Gee Frank - that may help your planes but it is going to wear your tires out in a hurry.

I would not do that myself...

How are your tires wearing?

I was a bit worried about that too Rob, it's been 3 seasons now and they look ok. I just kept dropping the pressure until I can see the tires really flex in the sidewalls.

Re: Finally got a trailer

If you have leave Springs. Remove the middle spring and the trailer will hug the road. Before I removed mine it would bounce over railway tracks and pot holes like a ping pong ball. It cut the hauling capacity from 1200lbs to about 600-800lbs.. but thats fine. Never had a problem.
