    no brakes is no bueno. Most boat trailers that I have seen for boats that big usually have surge brakes at the least

    Relax guys ,

    The customer provided wrong info!!! The boat and trailer all came in at just a little over 5,000 lbs. and when I picked up the boat the trailer had brakes. Those of you weren't being ######## should stop reading .......NOW... Skip the following..


    Some guys here I tell ya. I was asking for some friendly advise like I've done plenty of time before. I had never ran west of the mississippi , But I forgot that I am not talking to my regular friendly class 8 drivers. I now know not to come to you shipping wars, I wanna be trucker when I grow up ,u ship and central dispatch ######. Besides don't you guys have 10" muffler tips or peterbilt mud flaps or three more cb antennas to add on your little glorified 20 year old 600k mile road hazard of junk that was once a pick up truck.



    CONTINUE HERE. . .......Regardless the trip went off with out a problem. I even found a 22ft 2,400 lbs back haul and even a golf cart that fit in my 8ft bed made more money then what I would of made in my kw in a month. I do miss the hell out of 72" sleeper . anyways thanks to the guys/gals that were trying to be helpful. That is what this forum should about no?


    Here is a pic of what i've pulled in the last month for the ones who care. I am new to this type of work but not to the
    transportation business. I am one of the most expensive transporter out there. Yet I have more work then I can handle at times .

    You provide us with wrong info, ask us for our advice and then flame us after we provide you with potentially life saving advice. And you're calling us ########?

    btw, nice looking truck.
