It actually looks like a trailer

So after the second week of work it is actually starting to look like a trailer. We spent the weekend building the gooseneck. We decided to make the top piece of the gooseneck out of one piece to try and reduce the amount of welds seen on the outside of trailer. So we started cutting and bending the steel.

The cuts have been made and waiting to be heated and bent.


Bent and leveled.

We put the gussets up before putting the top channel on. They are a little big, but we think it helps the trailer actually look like a normal gooseneck despite the height.

Blake is obviously excited about the progress.

After the second channel got put up.

View from above.

Actually looks like a trailer now, with the gooseneck coupler on it and cross braced.

Looks good, with good progress. Must not have had much to do in EG Africa to dream this one up!!! Whats the big date for first party in trailer? Will you use a champagne bottle or bud light bottle to christen it?

Looking great! Wish I could see the full-size versions of the pics in the most recent post, but there's something wrong and the thumbnails don't link anywhere (on all but the first pic). I want to view them full-screen on my laptop, so someone will notice over my shoulder and I can claim to know people who do this kind of stuff. The ego is hungry and this looks delicious. (WOW this openid junk is bogus.)

Should be fixed now to be able to see the pictures in greater detail.
