My BIL and River City Smokehouse took a trip to Burlington, KS today. I left St. Louis at 4:30 and picked up my new (used) trailer at 10:00. On our way back we stopped at Oklahoma Joe's for lunch. The burnt ends and sausage were great. I just got back to STL at 5:30. What a long day. I'm not 100% sure how the trailer will be set-up. I might have to look at it for awhile. Should work out real nice for competitions. I'm ready for the next contest.

Cheers,
Nate

What's a trailer that size go for roughly, and what kind of perks with it i.e ac, electical, interior?

I paid around $3,000.

There is not much to this trailer. Right now it has some wood workbenches inside that I will be removing. The inside could use some TLC. It was used as a workshop.

The perks it has I was looking for were:

8' wide
AC
30 amp electric.
RV side door

Cheers,
Nate

Took the workbenches out and did some sweeping. Much more to do but I need to get some sleep.

Thanks. I guess people these days are more willing to bargain on price. The guy was asking $3,850 on craigslist. I guess this economy does have some good points.

It is so true that the economy has had an effect on campers and trailers off craiglist. Wife and I bought a 29ft class c camper of craiglist that was in perfect condition. They were asking $16k. We came in at $10k CASH and they didnt even haggle. DONE.

I do have that in mind for the future. It should be pretty easy to convert. Right now the double doors will have to do.

That is a hell of a price, that would normally be over 4k especially with ac.

Looks really nice. I'm sure you'll put that to good use. I got a trailer off of CL recently too, but mines a 4'x6' "utillity" trailer for moving The Beast without shredding tires. Lemme know if you need any help getting her into shape for competition. Drop me a line too if you need any OHP pellets...I've got a ton (litterally). I wanted to discuss competition schedule with you at some point too...anyway, enjoy the AC. Camper going bye-bye?

Actually I bought a pallet of OHP a couple months ago. Thanks for the offer. The camper we had that day was a friends. I don't want to be dependent on anyone else. One of the reasons for the trailer is the packing the couple nights before and a unpacking was killing me. This way I have 90% of the stuff already loaded.

I'm not sure about my schedule yet. I have a baby due in May. We'll see how this year pans out. I would like to do about 6 contests.

Cheers,
Nate

Heh....Congrats. My baby's due in April, which I'm sure will change my comp availabillity as well. We knew in Pacific, but weren't telling ppl yet. I just put the Pack N Play together last night though, so we can bring them both and drop them in for the comp ;-)

:lol::lol::lol:Is the motor in that trailer large enough to push that grey thing in front of it?

:icon_blush: You knew I couldn't resist!

Nice purchase Nate. Let me know if you need a hand with any mods on it!

To be honest, I waiting for you to chime in on that fact. That was pretty good. I'll give you that one.

But lets see who is more comfortable at the next rainy, hot, and humid contest.

P.S. I might need you to pull me out when I get stuck.

Cheers,
Nate
