Default Aluminum Car Hauler Build

o my Dad bought this 48' Raven Semi trailer in 2003-04 when scrap and aluminum prices were up. lucky for us we had a friend that owned a scrap yard and bought this before it was cut up. The trailer was completely stripped down of all steels and sold as clean aluminum. So Dad Rigged up a hay wagon to it and drug it home. It has been sitting till time to start this project. He wants a 30' dual tandem Goose-neck trailer. and told me i can have whats left so 18ft car-hauler it is.

Not enoughsmoke: Please read the very first item in our FAQ, the part about posting pictures here.
Long story short, we noticed problems with embedded images posted from off-site hosting services years ago.
Pictures tend to disappear over time, and as I suspected all along, sooner or later the "free" hosting sites either disappear altogether or God knows what. But it's a problem.
Consequently, we require all photos to be uploaded as attachments - no exceptions. This is how we've done it for more than ten years.
However, I did make an exception in your case; I copied all of your url's and uploaded the pictures for you. This time only.
Seriously, this is an attempt to accommodate you as a new member, not an attempt to pick on you or to run you off.

It also allows us to modulate how much data runs to our more rural or satellite internet viewers. In town it's no big deal to wait for an off-site to do it's thing and add on a bunch of images. Out in the sticks it becomes an issue.

It seriously is a cool project and I hope to see how it turns out. You have a nice beefy piece of 'scrap' to start with and it looks like you're off to a fine start.

Man, that's for sure.

I have seen alum dump beds that start cracking, and they get repaired
once or twice, then get scrapped.
