It's got a torchin axle

Postby RonS » Fri Apr 21, 2017 4:36 pm

I've been looking for a trailer on and off for a while. I keep seeing this listed. Not sure if the guy is actually selling them and making more, or if he made on that nobody wants to give him $1500 for as I've seen the listing for a while. I can't believe the "Torchin axle" isn't a major selling feature... :)

Well thats interesting. 45 minutes North of me. Would be interesting to see what a 3/8" steel plate torchin axle actually is.

Yeah, about an hour from me. Maybe we could meet up to check it out. :lol:

Yeah, I would imagine thats what was meant. But since it is a "military clone" maybe there are some torches that fire our from underneath! :thinking:

Speaking of underneath... that floor seems to allow quite a bit of air flow. Shouldn't have a problem with condensation at night. Dusty roads may be an issue though.




All joking aside, it really is an interesting profile, and for $1500 it could be a good beginner trailer for someone... IF it has a title.

Seeing a familiar design process: building for maximum strength with overly thick materials, use of steel where possible, straight cuts (no curves anywhere), subdued coloring for easier concealment, angular-sloping front with squareback rear, minimal windows, dark man-cave interior....What's not to like? 'Ceptin I don't like dem der pesky torchin' axles....
