  1. I would guesstimate around 9k for my HH-152 with the 12’ bed it has. (All steel) This was the load for CA that didn’t happen.... 14k trailer, 20’ long.... not enough tongue weight for sure.... should have flipped it backwards but, It didn’t work out. i looked at a B4JA -172 last weekend and I would have guessed it to also be around the 9k mark. (It had less of a bed, bigger ( and longer) frame, little bigger drums etc.) At the first of the year, i towed my B4GA from Seattle to Portland....I would have guess it without a bed out a bed to be in the 7k range
  2. Big congrats Haydenh! The bed is gonna make a difference on weight for sure. I haven’t weighed anything yet but have plenty of guesstimates. 😊 When I worked on my “HH” brakes i used a 12ton bottle jack (to lift) AND a 3ton floor jack (to stabilize) one corner at a time. I put both jacks on slab of 1/2 plate metal (because I was on dirt instead of concrete) last year I tried to load up the HH and tow it to CA for the BBQ but, I couldn’t balance the load with the bed it has...
  3. visual aid I kinda like the double support.... maybe this way the center section won’t tear 😊
  4. Congratulations

      ?? You got me on that one....

      not sure what the congrats are for but hey, THANKS 😊 

  5. "chicken or the egg" the door and glass fell off because the metal holding the door screws rotted away...... that is the nice thing about being friends, "we can agree to disagree" but, it's funny you keep challenging me on Glenn's threads. sorry again Glenn, i'll refrain from future attempts to help (way to time consuming trying to defend myself)
  6. from what I’ve seen “in the wild” debris slides down the nose, behind the whisker and the “door” sits there plugging up the “weep” holes and rots out the thin metal...... all I was saying is, with a larger hole, road muck could also contribute to that awesome 1/16 weep hole plugging.
  7. yeah you did! I like it a lot 9 foot box!
  8. Glenn, dodgeb4ya's photo makes me think if you don't end up fixing the hole size, you might either cover it some how or check behind the marker housing periodically for debris build up. even with the hole the correct size, I am always surprised how much debris finds its way back there....
  9. that is great news Joe! take your time and get life in order. take it from a self proclaimed lazy hobby farmer......... get a couple goats
  10. i know of several B1/2 owners that also own B3/4's hmmmm, i suspect someone is trying to start some sort of rivalry 😊
  11. So cool you guys! AND a truck crashed the party? 😎 When does the calendar come out?
  12. Good news Rob! 😊 https://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/cto/d/gladstone-1948-chrysler-town-and/6975726644.html
