Haven't made my squirrel stew in a while...gotta talk to buddy who lives in Tahoe. We used to feed the squirrels corn for a few days...till they were plump...then hunt'm with our 1,200 FPS pellet rifles. Repeat till enough were in the freezer for both of us [emoticon]

I was just ready to post if you'd bought a Kenworth T680 you wouldn't have sway issues


Truth! So somewhere between an Isuzu P’up and a Kenworth T680 is the proper tow vehicle for the trailer. No croaking magical collection of scrap iron contraption of a hitch needed. [emoticon]
