Re: Trailer question
Not sure if the school is buying your trailer or if it is being purchased by band boosters or with fundraising money. Regardless, your admin. is looking out for safety. They want to make sure that who ever is pulling the trailer has a smaller chance of having an accident since the school may be liable depending on the circumstances. Why don't you just do as they asked and let it go? At least you are actually getting to purchase a new trailer. Many schools don't even get to do this.
We are looking to purchase a new trailer but admin has told us that we need to purchase a gooseneck enclosed if we get one longer than 18 feet because it will be easier to pull and less likely of getting out of control while pulling it.We currently have a bumper pull 18 foot and have found several 24-foot bumper pulls with a reasonable price. What do you have and do we really need to get a gooseneck? Is adding six more feet to the end of what we already have really going to make that much of a difference with a bumper pull trailer?
