    New Floor on my 5x10 Utility Trailer..........!

    After six years of abuse from hauling drink machines and snack machines and sitting out in sun and rain! I installed a new floor today! My biggest fear was the screw holding boards to trailer! Phiiit! Them suckers came right off no problem! Now it's not ready to use just yet! Have to see if I can do something different for electric wrench!

    Used #2 treated pine 2x8x10 cost $89 for wood. Still had to trim the length 1 1/8" to fit flush! Will have to use my older brothers trailer Saturday to haul three snack machines to Nu Orleans!

    Time and money well spent! Looking good. Just did new tires, hubs and wheel bearings x4 on my boat trailer. Been 15 years and it was time. One of the bearings had a gouge in it.

    Have to do the same thing with mine. Also have losen the U-bolts holding the axles to the springs and push the axles about a 1/2" to one side to keep the inside of the tires from rubbing the fender.

    Ah yes trailer work. I have a 5x8 and a 7x 18 . The 7x18 is in need of new boards but has not been used lately so it sits, the 5x8 is back in the woods serving as mobile outpost #1 for right now. Set it out a few months ago and deer walk on trail right next to it, close enough to reach out and touch them as they walk by.

    trailers certainly are handy when you need them.

    One of my best friends has a trailer place where he sells and fixes trailers for a living! He has three full time employees, fixing trailers five days a week! He told me to bring my trailer to him, fix it for free! Nope! I don't take advantage of my friends! But I do need a few more screws he sells to attach boards to frame, he want let me pay for anything!
    Crazy fool!
