Outback Trailer

Here is the trailer of your dreams. I like it anyway.
Classic sheepherders look and some modern functionality.
Holds true to a traditional sheepherders wagon.
Looks like comfy sleeping.
A different twist on a trailer. I would like one on the side of my property or stashed in meadow somewhere.


Two wheels or four, its all good. :-)

Re: Outback Trailer

Looks like it is built on a manure spreader trailer, judging by the box/channel frame and how far back the wheels are set to drive the ground-drive spreader tines. Strong and heavy duty, but a fair amount of tongue weight. Nice for stashed-in-the-meadow vs. regular travel use. Heck, you could name it the "Meadow Muffin"

Caveat: I don't know as much about manure spreading as the above post might suggest

Re: Outback Trailer

Speaking of farm equipment: I was driving back to Vegas from Wyoming in my SMB on Friday and got too tired to drive further. I found a dirt road and drove far enough off the highway to be out of the noise of the traffic so I could sleep peacefully through the night in an empty field. At 12:15am I was awakened by a loud noise and massive lights coming toward my front windshield. I thought I was being attacked by aliens. Turned out to be a huge combine tractor that was harvesting the hay in the field where I had parked. It's amazing how fast a penthouse top can be taken down and an SMB moved when you need to leave in a hurry.

P.S.: Neat trailer. I'll bet it sounds cool in a rain or hail storm. And I'll bet it's lots of fun in 106 degree weather.
