Lifting the shell…

The chassis on this unit was essentially scrap and we knew that going in. Rusted and the torsion axles were bottomed out with little play. Gross weight (GVWR) on this trailer was 7100 lbs. Simply not beefy enough for the appliances and everything we’ll be loading her with. Before purchase i had spoken with Roger @ Amp Trailers about building a custom / replacement frame to make sure we had a path forward.

Last weekend Ben, Conrad, and I with the goal of building the gantry cranes by Saturday and finishing cleanout and lifting the shell. With very little daylight left, we hit the target.

Another shout out to Greg and the good folks at All Quality Products where we got the bulk of the lumber.
