Spring Building, March 3 2015

Today we start building our show model! Three weeks ago we bought a trailer from Express Custom Trailers in Parksville. It’s a custom, 8’x20′ steel trailer with a GVW of 14,000lbs. We got the trailer customized with additional steel flanges on either side to extend the width to the maximum highway allowable size without a permit.

This is the custom 8×20 trailer that we purchased, right after we towed it back to the job site. Now the work starts!

After we removed the decking, we put the floor package on, including weather proofing and pressure treated plywood for maximum water protection.
