Good to see you today Meefzah. The cases are going to work well.



Look forward to being the envy of everyone on the next group ride.

As long as this is up I'd be interested in hearing how the NC 700 X did on the trip ( if possible). Thanks, Kevin

Hey guys, long time no visit.

I'm seeking advice from those you with toy haulers. What do you think the one listed here is worth given the listed information?

I'm looking for a trailer I can use as a portable workshop for building holsters. With the business I started, I can travel to CCW classes, gun shows, etc and make custom gun holsters on-site. But carrying my tools in and out and in and out is breaking my back (I'm talking drill press / band saw / tables etc) so I want a workshop with stuff bolted to shelves where I can just open the door, plug in the 110 to a nearby building, and start working. It has to be smallish, btw, as I pull my current 4x8 Harbor Freight trailer with a Ford Taurus.


Thanks!

(oh and please don't snipe this one out from under me if it's a great deal...)

Looks like a great deal for $1700. I've seen trailers in worse condition go for over $3000. Just check the lighting but that's not a deal killer. You can rewire them for under $100.

LOL, thanks. OK, here. Click "slideshow" in the upper RH corner after hitting the link, easiest way to view them with captions:

http://meefzah.smugmug.com/Other/Sep...8353&k=ZPkSnNc

Brief summary: 6500 miles, 12 days, 18 states. Basically ran USR 2 straight west across the northern border states, with some deviations to westernly side routes, got snowed out of Glacier, ran the Columbia River Gorge both ways, hit the Pacific Ocean in Oregon, rode the PCH / USR 101 south into the top 1/3 of California, then came east, crossed Nevada on US 50, then slabbed it back home. Mid-Kansas straight home in one long freeway shot of 1100 miles. 8 days camping, 3 days motel. NX700 did great but Tim can provide more details on that.

And FYI, no facebook for me, ever.

Nathan, since we were talking about it, here's a used gel seat, $135 shipped, fair deal:

I dont know how much room you'll need for all your tools but it seems like a 5x6 trailer would get small really fast. You should try marking out a 5x6 spot on your garage floor and see if you can arrange your tools and I assume some kind of a bench or table in such a way that you can still move around comfortably.

What lead you to the Prarie Inn? I'm guessing you went right through my hometown of New Rockford on your way to/from that restaurant...

USR 2, or maybe is was SR 220 there (can't recall), I guess. There isn't much there, we were westbound, hungry, and stopped! Not sure about New Rockford though.

Edit, no, we missed NR, we came across 200 into Carrington.

In place of a workbench, I'm planning a wide shelf along the length of one side and perhaps a table-ish shelf filling the angled nose portion. The biggest room I need, depth wise, is for the drill press so about 18". It'll be small and cramped but not only will it be rain proof, I could heat it via electric while I'm on location which opens up winter CCW classes. And since I pull it with a car, I don't know that I want to go much bigger anyway.

As for price, do you concur with buildit? I have him talked down a little bit too.

Heck, if you can get him to lower it at all it's just that much better of a deal.
As for hauling with a car, check vehicle GVW against the trailer weight. It may be a little slow on the freeway due to air resistance but it will travel. Don't forget you can make seats that allow supplies to be stored inside them. Might even be worth getting a little harbor freight 2000 watt generator to make it totally self sufficient and functional anywhere.

PS searched the web for pricing and most trailers that size used are running $2100 or more.
