newbee with a Uhaul ct13

Hello, my name is Deb and my husband and I purchased our trailer affectionately named Marvin ( for Marvin the Martian) about three years ago. We have just now been able to start our restoration. This forum has wonderful information and the creativity seems to be limitless. We have classic cars so my Marvin is being restored to be pulled behind my "68 Dodge Charger. I can't wait.

OK, I would love to decorate a trailer named after Marvin the Martian. Of course, I would also have to the Dodge as a Looney Tunes character too, maybe Daffy or the Tasmanian Devil.

We love our Uhaul, but they do have their own unique features. Be sure to read the repair manual here in the document section.

Welcome to U-Haul, you will enjoy it. I have a classic car also, had more but sold them. I still have the 62 Corvett.

Roger what did you decide to do with your VT axle? Replace the whole thing?

Thank you so much for the welcome. The picture of my car and Marvin before we started on him are in my profile. I will post more pictures soon. I even have carpet with glow in the dark atom symbols, but that is down to road yet. We hope to have him ready for paint in about a month. My husband and I like to do campout/car events so this should be so much fun. Now I won't have to pack the trunk of my charger with camping equipment anymore.
