    Infinitymike, that is one hell of a load of wood. How is that dump trailer working for you? I have been thinking of getting one but still on the fence about it.

    That was one big load. I actually stopped that guy on the road and gave him a $100 bucks to come to my house.

    That trailer is great. It's an Appalachian 10k gvw dump. It's one of those things that once I got it I don't know how I lived with out it. It's an '05 I bought in '08 for $3500.

    2008 F-250 with an on board air compressor and air bags. I actually installed those specifically for hauling wood. System works great and really makes driving and braking with a full load much more fun! I even picked up the new stove in it!
    I've posted picks of the trailer before but here is how I move it around the property.

    I have made arrangements to sell the old flatbed. I don't have the time,money, or work space to do what it will take to preserve it. It will be in good hands and the new owner will be able to take much better care of it than I can. It will be moving to the Live Free or Die state. The new owner posts at this site, so it just might show up in one of these woodhauler threads in the future.
    One last picture while its still my woodhauler.

    It was also a bummer to see it slowly rotting away. The new owner knows how much of a treasure it is. I'm sad to let it go, but happy that it will be saved.
    I'm not going to change my name here though. :)

    Nothing like a good old Ford full of wood but I also know about one that rotted away.......she just hauled one too many loads. You'll miss that big old bed Steve.
