Hey Scott, don't worry, I'm usually the one most likely to do that. Glad to see someone else ocassionally not paying attention..........takes the heat off of me! :thumbsup:
Chris :D

The tension between what is good enough and what is beyond that creates the space for character to become our work.

True, true. BUT the Stripper is REALLY solid and tows great even in heavy cross winds.
I wonder if there is a point where the light weight is offset by less than optimal towing characteristics? In other words, if you have a larger profile and a lighter weight, can you have less stability? That was one thing that concerned me about the T@B design.

I suspect you could have problems with 'sail area' vs. weight... but I also think we homebuilders would have a hard time building something so light and so big that it would affect us.

A trailer with a wood (no metal) frame and studding covered with coroplast might be a problem.....

This sounds like a great idea. Do you or Steve have any specs on the Lil Diner. I am curious weight and tongue weight. Looking forward to this.

Scott F. :thumbsup:


I ask Mike that once and I think that he said it was around 1100lbs. Just PM him and ask.

I've not had the Lil Diner weighed yet. Maybe this year. I have to get a hitch on the car first.

Mike...
