    Here is my new trailer (to me anyways). It is a 1998 24 foot Donahue, with pop-up dovetail, two 7000 pound axles and the ramps slide in the back. Hope you enjoy the photo's.

    Looks good especially for it's age.

    The neck looks really low may want to watch it.

    I was thinking the same thing. Never really seen one built like that before.

    I am going to haul hay and some vehicles with it, There is 6 1/2 inches of clearance from the tail gate to the bottom of the frame. I am thinking of raising it a bit to get more clearance but if I raise it to much the trailer will not be level.

    I think it might be built like that so you can add on an extra deck. Like a 4' x 6' platform...not sure though.

    are you allowed to have a big fuel tank on there like that?

    It is a 50 gallon bulk tank and it is strapped down, you can legally carry 119 gallons with out a hazmat endorsement.

    You can haul up to 119 gal of diesel fuel without a hazmat endorsement. That is 119 gallons PER CONTAINER. If you have eight containers with less than 119 gallons each, you do not have to have a hazmat license. If you have one container with more than 119 gallons then you are required to have a hazmat endorsement and placards.

    The upper limit for fuel is 1000 lbs of a combustible liquid per package, and as diesel weighs roughly 7.5 pounds per gallon, you come up with the 119 gal limit. See the link below.

    Is this the same rules in Canada? I was told that all tanks homemade will not be allowed anymore they'll have to be a manufactured & registered & comply with rollover protection, That's what I was told at Mac Ewen were all of my fuel is purchased, do you know anything about this?

    He showed me the tank that he was talking about, it was pretty beefy and if I remember corectly he mentioned it would cost $1500

    I do not know about Canada's law for diesel fuel bulk tank. I did do a search on transport Canada site but could not find anything out about it. The tank I have is a factory tank but it is older tank, in good shape. I am going to paint it this summer so it looks better.

    I know a Dave Stoloch's, do not know him well. I think he works for the same company that I work for but he is in the TS&M division.

    The attachment is a grapple fork for round hay bales. It is one that I made, bought a rusted out bucket and replace the bottom and added the grapple fork. They wanted about $2000.00 for one. I have about $800.00 invested in the one I made.

    The trailer is in good shape for the year. I am the second owner. The guy I bought it off of used it to haul water for his sprayer.

    All tanks that are slip tanks need to be approved for slip tank use . Bolted in or chained down approved designs only . Wheaterguard is no longer legal in Canada since its single wall .

    Sooner or later we can all have a bad day .....

    That's about what mine is worth before it got linexed.
    I rent 2 other ones from Stinson for about $10-15/month ea, pretty cheap.
    You're not running around with 5 gal gas cans are you ?
