Your Welcome .

Sorry Mike, I am a visual person. I like to see what your talking about. I am sure others where wanting to be lookie lou's too, but where just being nice and waiting. Sounds like you have done a ton of work on it. Would love to see pic's of that flooring you got for such a great deal. Speaking of Deal, have you named the trailer yet? Cause the word deal needs to be in the name, the price you got it for and all the other great deals you have got, your one lucky Burro owner.

Taylor,
"...Trying to find an owner."? Are you selling or keeping the trailer you've found? If it's available, I'd like to know more about it. Thanks.

Robin: No name yet but thinking hard. I like the idea of including "deal" in the name.

I've been trying but the new avatar doesn't show with my postings. Must be doing something wrong.
