    I am looking for a used trailer tongue that is in decent condition. Does any one have one laying around that they want to sell?

    Lots of stuff you can use for that...I made one trailer out of 3 in gal pipe I found very close to a dumpster it could have been in the trash.
    u-bolts and treated lumber.

    How long do you need? I think I spotted a steel 3x3 pole holding up a patio very near your back yard...

    ops that's what i thought, i was calling it the wrong name.  I went and bought steel to extend the trailer already.

    I meant to say the receiver maybe?  The part that the ball on your truck bumper goes into and then it locks down on the ball...

    or i will try this way...
    the part at the very end of the trailer which hooks to the ball on your truck bumper

    Wow i am ignorant :'( :'(.....what is it called?

    thanks matt now i am edumacated ;D

    yea i saw them at sailor man for $20 and should have grabbed one i just hate buying stuff new when i know some one has one sitting there they dont use. Even if it is the same price as a new one i would rather get the recycled one, as long as it is in decent shape and i dont have to drive far to get it cause then you end up spending more in gas on the used one than on the new one. I just dont like to feed money to corporations if i can avoid it.

    BTW i have one but the spring in it is no good can i can just replace the spring probably right?

    The spring is onlt there for convinance you don't need it if you don't mind pulling the locking plate back with your hand.

    I did it for years on my bike trailer. Man I miss riding...

    Not to derail this thread but Matt, what distance is close enough to a dumpster to be considered trash? There is a whole pile of stuff here at the office that might be trash that I could use. It's one of those construction site dumpsters so the size has to be a consideration too correct?
    ::)

    Two things to factor in.

    2. do you have a van

    lots can be blocked with a cargo type Van..

    I have only heard of this type stuff from late night tv you know the crime shows.

    Careful. If it even resembles a construction site, you could be asking for big trouble. Just say'n

    yea I know it was a joke... Trust me i have the best wife in the world and she does not mind one bit that i need to go fishing.  I just am so busy that I dont get to spend as much time with her as I want, so some times i willingly give up the chance to fish so i can spend some quality time with her.  That might have something to do with why she doesnt mind when i decide to go fish last minute ;) My life would not be lived to the fullest with out her in my life!!
