It was about two days, maybe three, before they called us and said they’d found one that “might” do.
“Might do”? “MIGHT”? Ha!
Today Rusty and I met Don and Pat who led us to Ken’s place. We are now the VERY proud owners of an all-aluminum Sooner 5th wheel stock trailer! It is perfect, and even larger than we’d hoped. After a little TLC (brakes and lights), we will be able to take our trailer, team and a couple of spare horses to boot!
We can’t thank Don and Pat enough. And Ken is a peach for letting us have it.
Now: do we have someone who knows how to fix lights on a trailer? We don’t know if the wires are good or not, but we know for sure that the light bases and lenses are looking a bit worse for wear. Oh yeah, and there is NO plug on the end that attaches to the truck. As for the brakes, apparently we need them “done” (whatever that entails) and we ought to have the bearings repacked. If you have any of these skills and would like to join our work weekend, please let me know. (A work weekend is a carefully blended mix of work, beer and wine with burgers ‘n’ other meals thrown in.)
When’s the next work weekend? Dunno. When are you free? *grin*
