Re: Trailers

Considering the way the Adventure Trailers acted towards Bob in the Expedition Portal fiasco I will never give my money to any AT product. They build a fine trailer, there is no doubt about it, but their representation in that matter did not reflect well on them IMO.

I agree that go out of hand really quickly, but I think they landed on an ok note after that thread was locked and agreed to disagree, basically.

You really need to see a "Skersfan" trailer in person to see what true craftsmanship looks like.

As a total outsider, I can tell you what I learned during my recent trip.

AT claims that skersfan misrepresented himself as a potential customer while visiting AT's shop and "stole" the design for their Horizon trailer in order to build one of his own. After seeing both trailers, I can tell you that there are distinct similarities, but they are not identical. I don't know whether there is any "truth" to the allegation and I'm not taking "sides" either way.

I decided to go w/AT (and hope to follow through w/the purchase) because I wanted a Chaser (which is smaller than the Horizon & skersfan's trailers) and because I wanted to do business w/a company with a well established history in the business and a physical business location, each of which AT has but skersfan does not.

Re: Trailers

I have a M762 trailer. It's a flat bed version of the M416. It was mostly used as a generator trailer. It's a pretty neat little trailer although I have more money in it than I anticipated and I still have some other things to do to it. We pulled it behind our Montero and then traded the Montero in on our new FJ. So, now I got to get the FJ rigged up with a pintle hitch. The 101 and 105 trailers are quite a bit bigger and heavier than the 416/762. Me and the Mrs. can muscle the trailer around but there's no way a couple of people can do that with a 101/105. Anyway, good luck, there are lots of cool trailers out there but some of them get expensive.

Cool thanks for the info.. I seem to remember something like that or maybe someone posted up somehting about that situation. Its familiar to me now that you told the story..

Yeah those are both good reason to buy from AT.. But I do Like what Skersfan has put together..

With all the drama that does on in these forums I am thinking about canceling my cable and watching it nightly..

Just kidding .. I could never give up Speed TV.. I just have to seem my F1 races
