That looks like an oldy but goody. I don't think my little Ranger could pull the trailer, much less with a couple cubs on it.

I built it in 1988. It tilts back on the rear axle for loading. Drive on are winch on. A poor man has poor ways.

Looks like that thing will still be around in 2088 :shock: Poor man's ways are well built.

Could you have put a little more steel into it. :)

I have enough to last the rest of my life if I don't spend anymore. Kidding aside I have more than I deserve. My father owns all the cattle on a thousand hills. And my retirement is out of this world.

I have the Toy hauler in the back ground with A/C on the roof and generator. Unload the Cub then set up house keeping in the trailer. Like I said poor man has poor ways. No motorhome toy hauler here.

I just relized you have those large cub firning antennas in the back ground of the ist picture, All those poles and wires in the back also look like a large ground plane directional antenna. And here we were keeping our eyes on BD all along.

Jim,

:D This poor man hauls his Cub around in the back of 27' gooseneck horse trailer. Fits back there just fine even with the plow on and my 1964 Honda trail 90 I take with me to putt around at the shows. I like to tinker with stuff so I put living quarters in the front. Wife loves it. Its fully self contained. If I do say so myself I did a pretty got job for an old retired banker. We do alot of camping with our horses so it serves two fold.
Always try the easiest thing first.

:?: Jim, What is the car in the middle background :?: My eyes are guessing that it is a 56-Chevy or maybe a 55.

You and I saw the same thing. Ok Jim, what's the story on the Chevy? That caught my eye right quick like. Please, please, please?
