Trailer Under Construction
The trailer I will use as the foundation for my JayBee is being built by Northlander Trailers in Machiasport, Maine. The owner, Rick Lauze, sent me some photos today. This is so exciting! My trailer will be 26 feet long and just shy of 8.5 feet wide. It will have three axles--each of which is rated for 6,000 pounds. The frame is constructed of 8" channel steel, and the decking will be AdvanTech engineered wood. Soon, I will head to Machiasport (between snowstorms, if I plan well enough) to see my trailer while it's still in the shop--before it is stored outside for the rest of the winter. Can't wait!
