Up and Running

After many rounds of discussion and contention about whether or not our gooseneck plans were structurally sound or too heavy to function properly we finished the gooseneck conversion and took the trailer on its maiden voyage.   We were leaving right around sunset and since we didn't have the lights working we didn't get to take it that far, but got it up to 60mph and the trailer pulled just fine.  Next up on the list is getting the lights sorted out and the electric over hydraulic actuator working to make sure the brakes work on the trailer.  We are hoping the pace picks up now that it is a mobile trailer.

I left my camera at home, so all I have is cell phone pictures, sorry about the quality:
