Go big or......

This is what I "graduated" to. 24' Featherlite car hauler. Its a work in progress but I figure by next summer it will be done. I currently have it set up for for 4 bikes and golf cart. Im building custom cabinets w/ stainless steel counter tops (18"x 36" food prep carts salvaged from a friends bar). I bought a Coleman roof top air unit on Craigslist,just waiting for my brother to cut the hole. If I spend any more money on shit like this my wife says it will be my new home. The open trailer is what I "graduated" from.

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Yea its kinda big, but I paid less for this than I would have for new 12' trailer. Hell I dont think I could have got a used 12' for the money. My buddy and I went in on it and he hauls everything from parts cars to 40-50K cars in it.

Maybe a "slight" difference in gas milage,but I needed something that would handle a few bikes, golfcart, and gear so this is what I ended up with. Looking to get an awning setup for next year if anybody knows where to find a a good price.

You'd be driving around Tennessee for quite a while looking for the dragon

How long/wide are you thinking of going down the side? 10', 12', 20'?

Not necessarily a deal but I was looking for one as well and was thinking if we both got it from the same private dealer, we could get a deal on one. I need to confirm the size I need before committing.
