I was wondering if any of yall have seen those trailers that are made out of truck beds...anybody know how they make those and if they are good for hauling light gear.

Get a wrecked truck, front end only damage. Cut the front off but leave like 5 or 6 of frame forward of the bed. Then use that part of the frame to V It for the coupler and weld away.
Dr.Maxwe001 well i have a 15 gal compressor now and if I gett he 60  and then use the 15 as a reserve that wil give me 75 gal  thats close to 80 isnt it ?
