So do you plan to put the Centramatics balancers on the new purchase?
Looking forward to your punch-out list on the new trailer. And a comparison matrix on the 3 you have checked out and modified.
Which modification do you miss the most? and what have you got planned to modify on the new trailer?
Also what about the name of this one? And did you ever logo the 2nd one?
I never thought of chaining them, although it would be practical. I just depend on my walkaround to check that the drawer is closed. Having the pins laying on the bumper is probably good in that respect since the drawer could be closed and not locked with the pins hanging out of sight under the bumper. They are pretty obvious laying there on top. Unfortunately, some interesting activity among the big cats interrupted my usual departure regimen that day and I never walked around the trailer.
I will put the balancers on the new trailer in the near future. Wish I had made transferring them part of the deal, but that one slipped past me.
I have already modified the bedside cabinet and installed an oak knife block and a special little oak spice rack. Next will be larger magazine racks and some shelves in the back of the deep wardrobes. Also on the horizon will be to replace the battery switch with a marine switch that will select individual batteries like I did on the 25. No need to do the floor in this one, I like the tile-pattern vinyl.
I already have my WBCCI numbers and the name "Sabre-Dog III" on it as well as a forum decal.
