    Hauling firewood, lumber, ATV and camping equipment so that I do not need to take the trailer anymore.

    But the trailer is so much easier, and then you still have room in the bed.

    X2. I sold my 5'X7' landscaper last year thinking I'd go back to running the quad into the box with ramps. After a near miss with the quad almost dropping off with me on it from ramp slip on soft ground,I'm looking for another trailer.

    I haul my quad everywhere on my trailer. Just cant get used to rolling that thing off the back of the tail gate onto light aluminum ramps? Doesnt look high until youre sitting up on the seat looking down over your shoulder?

    Yeah completely agree with that. Somebody is going to have to drive one up on my buddies 4x4, but he is going to buy one of those large ramps.

    I have thought of doing that matter of fact I can get a 1987 for free from my buddy Tim. He bought it 4 or 5 years ago and it just sat in the yard. Last year when he through his back out he panicked thinking he would never get better so went out and bought a new 2018 F150.

    But the truck is a pig on gas has the 302 and only a 4 speed when I drove it to his place 275 km's from here it cost me 100 bucks in gas for one way. Needs some work on the engine has a oil leak some place thinking the lower seal and would have to replace that transmission with a 5 speed. The cab also needs some work and so do the doors because he left it in the grass.

    But I think I want something quite new that doesn't require to much work starting to get tired of being a mechanic it's fun and games when it is a hobby but a pain in the arse when you have to do it.

    OMG,that's some scary mileage,but,which one is the pig on gas,the '87 or the '18? I saw a '67 Chev PU that looked like it had been sitting in a field for many years on a roll back with a couple of young lads driving it the other day at the gas station. He said he got it for free from a farmer that wanted it gone and was going to restore it at school. I didn't think kids did that,anymore.

    The 1987 is the pig on gas and being a 4 speed manual should have heard that thing just a humming when I went 120 I didn't want to go any faster I figured the tranny would blow up or the engine.

    Yeah a 6.6 ft box just isn't going to do for the ATV. The ATV is about 6.7. Just going to be a real pain in the arse and if I get a 6.6 and use the trailer I'm just going to end up packing more equipment. Seems the more room we have the more we bring. Were suppose to be roughing it but are main camping spot is starting to look like a camp ground heck last year I even brought a kitchen sink to add to our cook table.
