I have only a little experience backing up those kind of trailers. Yes they are hard. A whole new ball game where the front wheels steer.

been wanting to build one for myself and even have a 4-wheeled frame ready for construction

as for backing one... PIECE-O-CAKE

put a hitch on the front of your vehicle and you can thread a needle with one :thumbsup:

[quote="Wolffarmer"]Nice rig. But I must correct the terminology, it is just something that bugs me, do not mean to be mean. I grew up around sheep men, sheep outfits and all. Around here they are called sheep camps. Never a wagon in the name. And you will never get me to ever use "wagon" in the name. :)


Easy there Randy, 8) On the east side of the mountains they are called sheep wagons . My granddad built quite a few for a lumber company in Gillette WY. There is one on display in the museum there.
