utility bed and a goose neck
 
What's the statistics on that working out in my favor? Or is it a better bet to go with a flatbed and do tool storage under?

Check out the pics of the 92. We have a hidden ball in it in the flat bed and it has side boxes. Just have to watch the angles on turns some times. I also have the hitch closer to centered above the axle, but it is a dually. My sister runs a horse trailer, I have run my horse trailer converted to a two car hauler on it.

It depends on how exactly you want to use it. The higher side boxes have their benefits, but definitely can get in the way if you want to be able to access from over the side. I definitely suggest you make it totally surrounded so that things don't slide off. Tie downs are something you definitely will want.

I'd prefer no trailer...they wind up being a PITA.

I've seen low utility boxes with gooseneck trailers. Be slick if you could put together a truck/trailer combo that worked. I love utility boxes.

Or as duncers said, get a truck that does everything you need and 86 the trailer if possible. They are a bastard.

Once again, depends what you want to do... I just can't quite get one let alone 2 cars on the back of my truck... tractors don't fit very well either.

Trailers are a must have, I just hope he's not planning on using it everyday. That's what I was trying to say.

Fellro 01-04-2014 08:24 PM

We have it available, but definitely not a daily use. Being that is how we have always used ours, I figured it was more of an option than a daily use.

Just throwing an idea out there Eric - What about an E350 diesel box truck for your mobile workshop ...... a tail lift and some cutouts along the sides where you could put access doors to get at your tools without going through the back.
That would give you a good gvwr and tool storage as well as the towing ability if needed.

Maybe something like this http://modesto.craigslist.org/cto/4256546413.html
