    Do you need to transport something bulky or heavy from OR or WA to AK? We are driving up with a 4 place enclosed snowmachine trailer in September and would like to offset the cost of gas by hauling stuff north.

    Well, so far it might be 2 snowmachines, a truck door, transmission and 2 lawn mowers... Anything else?

    Hello there,
    I am sorry I havent respond sooner. We are actually having the trailer built just south of Portland, and I am not sure when it will be finished. The dealer says "to my best guess it should be by the end of September". So I am hoping to make the trip in second half of October. Does it work for you? I will be checking the tread more often now, but definitely not every day, lol.
    Yes, we still have room :-)

    That should not be a problem. The trip will happen in October. THe only issue is to get your stuff to where we can get it super easy, without too much of a diversion from I-5. The trailer is in Independence/ Woodburn, Portland is a good place, and north from there....
