Lenny,

I have been looking on e-Bay, checking the local buy and sell papers as well as Craiglist, but have not found something suitable. I did find a trailer company in West Virginia that said they could build me a 24' trailer but I left 2 messages and never heard back. :( As it stands right now, I am planning to bring my 16' trailer to the house tomorrow and start working on pulling the deck and put a new on on it. That will allow my to haul my farm wagon and one of my buggies.

I am undecided as to whether to drive my Explorer, bring my pickup (with my spring wagon in back) or to use my rollback and haul my Hawk and the trailer.

I thought you bought that frame you posted the picture of. Looked like the hot setup for you.

I'll keep an eye open around here. I still say I could get you one built here in time, any specs you want- just need axle(s) and tongue, and I could probably find those too. In fact I have a 1974 camping trailer that has a bent tongue, but the axles are still there. It wouldn't cost that much, I wouldn't think.

If you'd want to come to NY for one, let me know and I'll talk to my fab guy. I'm willing to help if I can, if it's feasible for you.

Gary, if you must use the open trailer, load the buggy or spring wagon then take their wheels off. Set them on carpet strips so that the axles aren't directly on the trailer bed and wrap the spindles in saran-wrap (that way everything doesn't get greasy). This reduces their wind-resistance. If you load a smaller vehicle behind the large wagon, the wagon's wind bubble will protect it, somewhat. Just remember to wrap the wheels in blankets. Oh, stuff the wheel hubs with baggies, big ones. If they overlap the hubs (two gallon bags) and are pushed inside, the grease will hold them in. That way your blankets don't get dirty.;)
Take it from someone who used to do this every weekend.:)

Oh, one more thing I almost forgot; Always tie down by the axles, not the body or chassis of any horse-drawn vehicle. Not even the wheels. Please don't ask why I know this.[8)][:I]
