Theres a place in Perham that makes hydralic trailers but not sure if you can get the wheels inside. I dont have the name or number but they did advertise in the outdoor news. Aqua Eye might have some info seeing that he has checked on alot of different trailers.

Actually, you will be able to get a better price from L&L fabrication out of Perham since he makes the frames for American Truck Accessories. smile.gif Bigguns1, I would bet you a new poured slab that FM can save you money on that new hydraulic frame once you know what you want it to have. I'm putting up a garage/shop this spring, I could use a couple more quotes if you are interested. Email me at ,...............tbartlett@astound.net and we can talk about it. TROY

i know many people have been asking for other little things added to the FM trialers. But I know you can't please everyone. I'm not a fan of the outside axle on most droppable trialers, But I sure would like it if they could make the same type only with the wheels on the inside and a hydraulic hand pump similar to the floor jack. That would have me sold in no time. The trailers they have know are well worth the money but I would like see the great price on one of the trailers I'm describing.

Bigguns1-
Let's hammer out some details. We have talked about offering hydraulic frames but I know we don't have any definates nailed down on sizes, axel styles, electric versus hand pumps, electric brake options and little things like that. I know our supplier would love to be able to offer hydraulic frames because to put things frankly,... they are a large buyer in the hydraulic industry and this is really where they are able to outprice the competition.
If you would be willing, check around and see what the best frame out there now is selling for and get back to me. I can float it past my friend and see if we can't add a nice thing or two for the same price or better. How does that sound to you? This would be a FM prototype and I guess that you would be the guinea pig. But someone has to buy the first one right? smile.gif Let me know, I am tied up with work and other projects right now but there's no use in missing the opportunity to get this ball rolling too.-TROY

I know Rick is super busy as always but I think he might like to know people are interested in these larger options also.

I just think the lager sizes should be offered in hydraulic versions with they wheels on the inside. Me personally, I wouldn'y want electric brakes or an electric pump. Thats when things get complicated. We'll just have to see.

    •   All good things come to an end sometime. At some point we realized that the cabin that we always wanted just was not going to happen for us. So, for less then just the taxes and cost of up keep on a cabin we have a park model camper where we can have family and grand kids come up and go fishing any weekend we want. Plus lots to do around the Brainerd area if you don't want to sit in the camper on a rainy day. Last weekend we ran up to Walker to Reeds and pick a gal of Blue Berries on the way.
    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
