I’m not used to the picture limits here. Is that because I’m new, or is there a workaround?

It won’t allow me to attach a file larger than 1 MB.


I upload my photos to Imgur and have it resize to 640 x 480 automatically. And then it's easy to use the Direct Link button.

I don't know this Imgur thing. So I just resize in the Microsoft Photos app.

Relevant pictures, plus location challenge #2 LOL.

Hint: same state as Horseshoe Bend.

I had to do this on the golf cart forum, so luckily I already have one. Pretty easy setup, though.

Well, everything for a roller is on order, except the wheels/tires that I’m waiting for a response on (discount tire has a vehicle requirement to order online that checks vehicle fitment)

Timbren from above.
Steel for the frame from Metalsdepot, ordered most of it cut to length, we’ll see how close it gets, they state 1/16” tolerance.
Lock n Roll weld/bolt on

Wish me quick shipping and some luck. I’m using the Wander Tears frame plans for the setup, but running full lengths.

Are there any nice wiring “kits” for the trailer functions? Looks like I’ll basically have to custom wire it.

Update from last weekend. Still have some detailing and accessory steel. I wish Timbren included all the clearance dimensions, pretty tight with the 3/4” intrusion from the pivot bolt head on test fit.
