And the MO wide body burro 17 stays in MO. I picked this up from Joplin last week.

Found no unobtanium on it, but still have the geiger counter going, just in case.

Seems in good shape. I'll be checking it out over the next couple of weeks and will report on progress.

One thing for certain: they all appear to go on a crash diet when it's time to find em a new home!

Yup, then you have newbies or those who choose to believe that 1000 pound claim! Or worse those who guess-ta-mate what their trailer weights and tout it's skinny sleek figure! (seriously, some people think their 16,17'ers weight what a 13fter weights!)

That is why it's always best to suggest everyone weight any trailer they are thinking of purchasing............

"Unobtainium" was a reference to titanium before the stuff outran the demand of aerospace and commercial aviation applications and began to show up in everything from bikes to pen sets. Most was alloyed with aluminum, another lightwgt. As near as I know it never glowed in the dark or set off radiation sniffers. I can tell you from bitter experience with a couple Ti crank spindles in racing bikes that you wouldn't want it in a trailer axle.

Welcome to FiberglassRV Den. Go out to the Intro thread and brag a bit. That's okay, everyone does
