Been thinking about a new wagon lately so just kinda thinking out loud.  My dovetail has been annoying the hell out of me the last few weeks.  Stuck running loads in the north east with lots of steep hills.  No matter how hard I try seems to still drag a few times a week up here..

With all the tolls up here I sure could of saved some coin with an air ride lift axle..  Wonder how long it would take to break even with the up front air ride cost..??


What about decking?  Anyone ever try anything else besides the standard #2 treated pine?

If you spend enough time up here, you'll get used to being a road grader

Lift axle can save in many ways and I've noticed the air ride really saves abuse on the trailer as well. Longer lasting equipment is a good thing.
