Hello again.

I will attempt to post the project pictures again. I mentioned that I did not take pictures of my early restoration activities. I began taking pictures after I joined this forum.

This first picture shows my trailer profile mounted on the new frame.

Nope no luck I guess I will have to check the upload instruction and try again later.

Darrel, the picture loading problem is not happening on your end...it's forum wide right now. Webguy is working on the issue and we'll put up a report when it's resolved.

Hang tight...we will all want to see those picture as soon as it's possible

Well here goes again. It looks like the pictures may post now.

These are the first pictures I took after joining the FGRV forum. As I mentioned I did not take any pictures earlier . This first one is the profile of my Compact II.

This is the one shown on the albums site. All the trailer pictures are views of the body mounted on the new frame.

Thank you again Michael and all moderators for your untiring work for this web site. We really appreciate you and all you do.

... I had a receiver welded on the tongue which allowed use of adjustable and removable hitch configurations for on road, off road , camp site, and security options. The tongue is actually over 4 foot long at the ball mount...

... I set the hitch coupler at a good tow height and was then ready to take the trailer to get the registration inspection.
...
This is an interesting design. The receiver box is clearly visible in the early photo with just the shell on the frame, but I can't make out any detail in the complete rig image. I assume the receiver is a 2" box, and the coupler is mounted on a suitable square tube which is inserted in that receiver and retained by a standard pin.

Darrel, you mention configurations for various uses, but what changes? Coupler height, ball size, length... ? Since ball platforms (for the tow vehicle hitch side) are readily available in various heights (including adjustable) and to accommodate any required ball, I wonder why the need for the flexibility on the trailer side. It is, of course, a relatively unique and therefore "cool" mod!

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Now I get it, why you wanted the red rig. Nice patriotic combo!
