okay and my work tow vehile.

1990 gmc izuzu w5 tilltmaster at about 6 ton of hay.

me and dad just mounted a 12 foot flat bed on this truck this afternoon. I got smart and saved myself with some more chains when i was turning the ohma grain and stock bed over with the loader tractor. if i had kept on going the way I was with my first 2 chains I could have dumped all 12 feet of the ohma grain bed on my tractor!!!!!

not the first oh, most killing myself thing i have done in my lifetime though.

going to put a bumper hitch on the isuzu and maybee pull the teardrop or load the teardrop up on the new 12 foot bed of the truck and tow my large boat behind the isuzu.

who knows. I know for now the ford suv is my teardrop puller of choice.

izuzu is mostly for farming and ranching.

Plans. there was supposed to be plans to be followed when I built this thing. Opps! AH, gee, tum,tee tum. I think I forgot about the plans 2 years ago. ------Tow vehicles, 1995 ford explore, 1994 ford ranger, 1993 ford F-150, 2009 4x9 Off road teardrop, on harbor freight greatly modified frame.

This is the Valley of Fire State Park, about 45 minutes north of Las Vegas.

Very quiet, that photo was taken about 3 weeks ago. Lots of hiking and... well that's about it! probably too hot for comfort in the summer but perfect weather right now (high 70s, down to low 50s at night).

Used to use my wife's 4-cyl SUV. Towed fine, but the smallish tank and the drop in MPGs meant a lot of gas stops.

Then I got a new truck, been using it for the last 5-6yrs. Towing doesn't affected very much, it only gets 1 MPG less than the 4-cyl while towing.

Nice choice of BBQ. Did you happen to go to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum down the road?

I use a jeep to tow my trailer, which in-turn involves a jeep towing a trailer.

But do you us it or just show it. Looks to me that you just show it. Just another pair of trailer queens. :thinking:

Works for me. Got to be better than a tent, especially if it’s very wet outside. ;)
