    Wall Sag

    I've fixed a few I have jacked the trailers up and supported the trailer on the walls Used 4X4s along bottom of walls with jack stands at each end and bottle jacks in middle for extra support Reinforced existing out riggers and added as needed Then cross bracing between frame rails at out rigger location Picture your building a truss under the bottom of trailer With trailer supported take a straight edge across the floor inside I will raise the floor at the walls 1/8" to 3/16" higher than the center ( Preload Reverse sag ) I'll use a couple of floor jacks on the frame to get the dimension Just supporting the walls with out frame supported yet the most I've gotten is 3/8" reverse sag Draw a picture of your trailer upside down a cut in half view add truss across it The flip it over It will make sense If you have dry rot in the walls that will cause additional wall sag

    Door hinges

    Thanks Grease Monkey. As above from Mcmaster carr I've used the barrel hinges Also have made them from round stock and tubing. I don't have any pictures of them One thing make them adjustable Don't weld them solid. They will sag in time from car twisting and ware. One other option use the hidden hinges that are used on Hot Rods.

    Towing a big 5er with 3/4 ton diesel

    I'll through my two cents in on this. I drive a F450 with a WW CL4005. Total weight loaded 29850. LBS. over scales Legal weights on all axles. and not exceeding the CGW of the truck. Last season we were on the 210 to Glamis and were rear ended by a drunk driver, this happen in a construction zone and the CHP were there and witnessed the accident. When the report was being filled out The GVW of the truck and trailer were noted on report I have a class A licence and that was noted too. Turned it in to my insurance and they verified weights with just the stickers on the vehiciles and that I had the correct license for what I was driving.

    Does anyone have a weekend warrior CL 4005

    Rear tire stay on have about an inch on each side going through door opening I don't have a dimension for the front wheels I had to remove the table and it's pocket for clearance. Not sure on how many quads will go in front. I have backed the car in with one skinny tire on slide out side all the way to front cabinet. Had one quad in front ( Yamaha Blaster ) and to quads at rear of trailer side by side ( Banshee and 250R ) Also a couple of pictures of the ramp for the slide out There are Teflon furniture moving pads on the bottom to slide on when the slide out goes in an out.
