If he drops it off at my house, in a weeks time he'll be able to sell burritos out of it.

Had to order towing mirrors for the Tundra. Can't see around it very well.

We also negotiated a free spare tire, new receiver and 2 5/16" ball and a hitch lock because the manufacturer screwed up the desks. They were designed to fold down, the ones we got are fixed.

All of our gear will get off loaded on race weekend, then the trailer will get sealed up, with the A/C on high. We have moved our command center from the RV to this trailer. No more piece of shit RV that won't start. If the Tundra dies, we just buy another tow vehicle. This trailer was more than 3x what we paid for the RV many years back.

You know the trailer is 1/4- 1/2 mile from my house. I can easily pick it up with my truck and take it to the events to save you the hassel if you wanted.

Trailers are no longer going to be at Randy's place. Both the new trailer and the one trailer will be at Becky's place in Lehigh.

Well then I retract my statement. However, more than happy to pull one or the other if you need it for the events.

We are definitely getting a couch. Maybe a pullout, and definitely a fridge.

Not a single cabinet. No toolbox? No spare tire storage? Not even a friggin bench vise. Do you guys all travel with a box truck in support as well as BYOB? Please 'splain what gets loaded in there for a race weekend because all I see is room for one car, a set of spare tires and maybe a MaxJack, a QuickTrick and a floor jack.

We just picked the trailer up. We will be doing cabinets and things on our own. This trailer does not haul a car, it hauls all of our equipment (tables, generators, tools, ...) to our race events, and then will double as or command center (timing computers, registration, ...)
