Enjoy that Luniminum . Sucks for the thing it's meant to do.

Engineering is questionable, at least at this stage. This probably brands me as an asshole I guess. I can live with that...…….most people think I'm a prick.

I'm on pins and needles to see how it turns out. "You'll see when it's done"

I hope I gotta eat shit, and apologize.

Excellent...let's see your math.

FWIW Worthington trailers in central PA made arroonium goosneck
deck over trailers for a few years.

Then went bankrupt.

IIRC someone else has taken over, there, and started selling them again.

Well There is not really any math or Blueprints I am not that kinda Engineer
I have looked at several Aluminum Trailer manufactures and None i have found built them as heavy as i am building this one
However Crossman Builds a Nice Aluminum Gooseneck trailer and after this project is finished I will be building a 30ft Dual tandem Goosenck for my dad

I think it’s looking good, and it’s nice to see a project thread. If some of the comments bug ya, don’t worry about it, it’s all in good fun. There’s a lot of us that have been here for years, some are crusty around the exterior, others just crusty inside. Lol!!

I’m hoping to build an aluminum 4x8 trailer someday, so I’m watching this with interest.
