Thanks! It's an American Hauler Silver Hawk 24 footer.

Yep, LPE 10 rib. I was actually getting the pulley off, the puller wouldn't take it off, so I had to push the shaft through the bottom. The shaft was almost out when it snapped. Thing just exploded!

Damn. That thing is really nice. At least you knew enough to get the extended the beaver tail. That'll be perfect for your car and easy to tow.


So I take it you had to she'll put the 6 hundy for the LPE pump.

Yeah I like it so far, I looked at a ton of trailers; I wanted to go gooseneck, but my truck wouldn't fit under it

Yeah, right after they hit me for 3k on the pulley system. They did knock off $50

Why wouldn't you're truck fit under a gn? With such a short trailer the bumper pull will be fine. GN you would need a 32' to get 24' of useable deck but you get all that extra storage.

And the rich get richer. If that 10 rib works for you that may be that last thing I do to my car.

6" of lift and 35" tires. Yeah that's what they said, I just liked the idea of the storage and better weight distribution.

Yep, LPE is nice, but overpriced if you ask me. I'll let you know how it works, I'm hoping it will solve the belt slip issue that us Maggie guys are plagued with.

Ah, yeah, that'll F you up. That's why I just did a 2" kit with air bags in the back. As for the storage, we don't bring that much with us. Some chairs, cooler, and a tool box, that's about it

Yeah, we got a Pace. It isnt as fancy as yours. :(Haven't towed it yet. Needed to get a new coupler with a short bed truck.

The joys of the short bed that was the other limiting factor on my truck. What truck are you using?

2010 Silverado HD with a Gale Banks tuned Duramax. It towed my 44' with no problems all over the place. That weighed 14k. The 48' weighs 16k. Both being loaded weights.

I needed a 9" offset coupler so I'd have a decent turning radius. We'll prob step into something bigger if we continue to see 20+ track trips a year. Time will tell.

Nice setup! Mine's an 06 Dodge, Smarty tuned here. I don't have any real good pics of my setup, waiting on parts to finish it all up. Gonna go dually?

Nope. If we go with anything it'll be a little Freightliner or Kodiak. Might as well do it right. Make it a dedicated tow vehicle. Just need to do a lot if racing to justify the cost.

I don't have many good pics yet either. Still waiting to get it all dialed in. Should be soon.

Thankfully the truck has been perfect. Knock on wood.. Yeah,when hooked up its pretty long. The only hard part is making sure you fuel up at a truck stop otherwise you're disconnecting the trailer on the side of the road. With triple 7000# torsion axles I'm told it tows like a dream. Time will tell. Going through New York City will still be a mother fu#*er!!

Atco opens tomorrow, although we will be in the middle of a Nor Easter. I still waiting on the rear wheels and different springs for the Pfadt shocks. Hopefully soon it'll be done!
