    Until he decides to upgrade his truck to pull his fancy new trailer . Do all new ford trucks have the trailer backup/anti-sway and all that crap or is it part of an option?

    This trailers about a foot wider than my truck. Also two foot four longer. My other issue I need the hitch for is the A frame setup will hit my bumper hitch much sooner than my last one. Picking up the spare Thursday. Already bought a coupler lock. This ones worth steeling.

    Never use paint on a trailer bed or you'll be scraping, sanding and renewing peeling paint every year or two, use linseed oil instead. If you're storing this trailer outside then get an oversized tarp from CT and keep the rain and snow off of it. PA has trailer tongue locks on sale as well as chain for looping through the wheel spokes and over the axle on each side.
