    Nice job man, never seen a tongue like that before. I'd say late 80's. 88 maybe? and how about a anderson? Highly doubt either guess are correct.

    Great job, that looks fantastic! A lot of work though.

    My guess on year is 1995.

    That is a good solid trailer. You should be able to get many years of use out of it.

    If nothing else, he can sell it for more than he put into it!

    I was going to guess that actually, as I have a 1996 Cronkite, and the only main difference is mine's 16' long. They're actually pretty common around here, and there's no doubt that they're a well designed & built trailer..............

    Must be because they are out of Illinois, don't really see them around here. But I was really impressed with the quality when i pulled the old deck off and exposed all the welds and bracing. Thing sure is heavy tho.... 3k empty! Its def built better than some newer skid trailers i rented
