Oh i was wound up just typing it and i am very uneasy up there anymore.  It took years to recover from that event.
Amen.  

Mike's story is way worse than mine, but the shades were the same.  When they finally let me go, after I called my wife on my cell phone and told her I may be going to jail, and she asked me why and I said "I have no idea."  So, you can get your vehicle impounded and go to jail for simply pulling a gooseneck trailer with a pickup truck.  They actually gave me a police escort to the nearest weigh station where they had an impound lot, so they weren't playing.  However, after writing me ticket after ticket, they let me leave, maybe because I did have the correct commercial insurance and a medical card, and wasn't exceeding the CDL margin, just the DOT rules.  

I think the takeaway I learned is that if I was going to do the towing thing routinely, it was easier to jump through the hoops, which also serve to protect me, then try to dodge on the fringe.  Since that time, I have become 100% DOT FMCSA legal, I sleep better at night, have passed many police on the road, and instead of them snapping their head around when I pass by, now they see the bright yellow DOT magnetic sign on the door, and they wave.  Whole different thing when they know I'm playing by the rules.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

Maybe put a slow moving sign on it or magnetic tail lights

Theres a little more to the story, not related to vehicles, in terms of things they had against me, and things they did to make it much much worse.. but the statute of limitations isnt up on that yet and internet posts are routinely used to incriminate a defendant so youll just have to wait on that one. 

  

While detained i was on the phone with my attorney and had my wife writing up a gofundme.  A lengthy prison stay was everyones full expectation and i said Lord if you want me to preach in fishkill i'll do it but im hoping you have better plans for me.

Seems like were seeing more and more the need for what I would heavier duty hot shot style trailers. That heavier axle will be nice. Have you heard when you will get the trailer you ordered?

They said it should be in the first week of February. I  called and was thinking of changing from 32 to 35. He said it was to late its in production. Thats ok. I had talked to a couple guys that had longer ones that went back to shorter ones for hauling equipment and they said they were a pain to get around in tighter places. I probably should have told him 35. It was only another 490. Prices have went way up since I ordered it

The guy on the left is Jason Crabb. One of the owners. Son to Mike & Kim that started the company. Interesting story about how he started the company from nothing. Sales in a old mobile home trailer and a little shop to a premier company today. He was the one that designed the torque tube in the longer goosenecks after farmers had problems with heavy loads in the earlier years. A true story of Dreams can be achieved. Thats why the family  company has some great values about their customers and employees

Stain on a trailer deck? Haha.

Haul around some equipment and the deck will be coated in motor oil, hydraulic oil, and diesel before too long. Add some tire skuff marks, steel track marks, etc and that pretty stain job was all for nothing.

Seems like around my farm wood floor flat bed trailers just don't work out. No matter how careful I am wood floors and equipment just don't go together. My two bigger flat bed trailers have steel floors and work real well. I do have a smaller 7x14 that I haul my Grasshopper mower and my compact tractor on and its wood. I try not to skid things on that trailer it does have a ramp gate and I really like it but I rebuilt it years ago with quarter inch plate steel the wire mesh didn't hold up.

The oak flooring seems to hold up pretty good

Free of heart will last 2x longer than flat sawn wide planks.  They get laid down green and dry on one side in scorching sun then split at the heart and pool water until the boards split in two on their own. 


Motor oil helps

My tilt deck has a diamond plate rear section, and my GN flatbed has diamond plate over the tires. It is miserable stuff,  when its cold and frosty its extremely dangerous (thats like 7 months of a year here), anything on steel tracks it is dangerous, spill any oil on it and its slicker than owl scat.

I'll replace wood every few years over sliding a piece of equipment off the deck because the steel is frosted up.
