Default Open Stacker trailer

I was wondering if anyone out there has one of these open stacker trailers? Thinking about retrofitting mine with the upper ramp system. I would raise the front pivot a little more than this one, but I like the idea. Back the boat on then drive the yukon under!! Hook up to the Newell and off we go!!

Keith, I have looked at a few of these types of trailers. A few years ago I bought plans for this type of trailer from a guy off ebay and for the likes of me can't seem to find the info. Maybe when I clear out the cobwebs it will surface. Anyway, I have went over the same scenario with Marc (Mr Yachts) as he is wanting one as well but is thinking or dreaming more along the lines of an enclosed design to haul the wife SL and his ski boat. I have several pictures and designs I could post for more ideas. You are the welder and I suppose we could make them up there vs. down here or Mexico.

Sounds awsome, I was thinking of making a travel cover of some kind just to keep the mud and rocks at bay. Kind of like a boat travel cover but have it go around the frame with either zippers or turn buckles so it can come off when you want. For the hyraulics I have some of those 12v pumps kicking around.

I just went out and took some pictures of a trailer I built a few years ago and it has a cover on it. I had a boat cover company sew up the cover and install zippers over in Colorado. You are already hooked up with the sewing machine. I call it my convertible trailer. I'm sizing the pics right now and will upload them shortly.

Okay, here are some pictures of the beast. I have hauled cars in it and right now it's full of wood working equipment waiting for a new home. lol I need to have the front upper portion redone or maybe I'll have the whole top portion done in a lighter color. The dark tarp material that was used gets too hot and I wish I would have gone with maybe white or a lighter color.

This is just for ideas. Of course you have to design a modified trailer longer, without fenders and taller. But it could work. I was thinking of building another out of aluminum with the modifications. I could have sold this trailer a hundred times.

Here are three pics, as you can see we just had thunder showers and I have some weeding to do over in this area.

My wife the dear just corrected me and so I must confess, I bought the trailer as an open flatbed, then modified it later with the framing and covering. I also filled in the lower portion of the trailer with sheet metal. The deck is 16' and will haul smaller vehicles and stuff. The tarp covering can come off or you can unbolt the the whole frame and two guys can handle it. There are two bolts up front and four on each side. Of course aluminum would be a bit lighter and you could go with lightweight tarp. But for the most part, it seldom comes off. Being truck tarp material, it last for years.

That would be nice to be able to just unbuckle the tarp to easily get at things, or for loading and unloading also for strapping down, rather than enclosed, it would be tricky doing so especially with a stacker.

Neweller, in your post above, you seemed to indicate you are in Mexico. Where? I live in San Carlos, Sonora, 320 miles south of Tucson on the Sea of Cortez.

Chester I'm not currently in Mexico. A group of us site members have been hashing around the idea of building some accessories for the Newell Coaches either here in the states, Canada or Mexico. I have a friend down in Mexico that builds exotic Lamborghini replica's. He had moved his company from Southern California, tells me he is getting better results for the 1/4 the price. I have traveled quite a few places in Latin America and would say you have picked a wonderful place hang out in your Newell down there in San Carlos. That was my uncles favorite place to RV year after year for many many years. What year did you first start staying down there? His name is Jim Johnson from Oregon.

Neweller, I have been in San Carlos for 21 years. Yes, the talents of the Mexican tradesmen is impressive and the cost is much less than the US. I attribute the primary reason to the culture where young men usually join the family trade as an early teen and acquire a lifetime of knowledge in that single trade. Often machine tools are old, but they know how to make them work. This has been an helpful this last year in maintaining my Newell.
