    New just won't do.

    Bought me a new trailer and have to make a few changes. Picts to come as progress is made.
    1st picture is an identical trailer like what I bought and started with.
    2nd is mine with some tool box and decking additions.

    Thanks Troy. I have a long to do list on this thing. Got the wheels in yesterday and will try and get them mounted in the next day or 2.
    I am waiting on some 3x3 alum tubing to run under the skis and give me a 3rd bunk support for each ski. The bunks sag now and the ski touches the fenders. That and I need to order another sheet of Hydraturf to finish the decking and center running board.

    It is a very nice trailer but the guy is a 2 man band; meaning he is kind of slow. His helper did a lot of the work and he did not go back and check the details. If I would not have been in such a rush, I would have pitched a bitch. Pisses me off when people won't go back and double check things like filing down ruff edges of cut aluminum.
    Other than that, this is one bad ass trailer and will will meet the DRC criteria with ease; though points may be deducted for the 2 skis that sit on it.

    Rims.
    The guy told me he had some old aluminum rims that needed some clean up. He substatuted the galvanized spoke rims with these.
    Little bit of an upgrade.
