    good call! Every one who gets an open trailer says "damn, if I had to do it again I would have go the enclosed one".

    Not everyone. I'm an open trailer guy and for what I do would rather have it than an enclosed trailer.

    800 lbs empty, I figure at tops, the KTM and gear might be 400 lbs. so I am guessing around 1200. I will have it on scales at some point.
    my liberty is rated to tow 3K without tow package and 5 K with tow package. tow package consist of clutch fan and different shroud where I have just an electric fan.

    its 5' x 8'. its the same width as Jeep Liberty, and maybe 6' taller than jeep.
    it also does not have a ramp. Ramps sound like a good idea, but you must use them on level ground. if you twist the ramp at all by using it with one side not touching the ground the one lift cable will come off the spool and get all screwed up.
    I will just use a metal ramp I already have. Maybe build a way to store it under trailer, or hinge it so it folds out of trailer after I open doors.

    I really should think about putting a coat of paint on inside before I use it. Gloss painted walls really are easier to keep clean.

    Cabinet style or pot blaster ? I kinda want a cabinet so I'm not making as much of a mess outside I have to clean up, or hide.

    They are hardened tapcon screws so probably pretty good. I think they should still bite enough but I can see them skipping out every so often also.

    I had a small HF one I got for Christmas that was oil filled and it wasn't bad. However, it just plain would not run in my shop due to the cold. I had to flip it on/off about 20 times before it would run. In a heated shop I think it would have been fine. This one however is QUIETER than that was and it's bigger, much bigger. I searched and searched for a good quality compressor and this is THE one to get in a single stage. If you can up the game to 2 stage do it, but it comes with a price. There is one compressor better than this one but it needs to be ordered and It wasn't worth it to me. I forget what it was though, maybe a Quincy ?

    You can load it up and just drop it off at my place. It's on the way to RAC so I will really be doing you a favor and all. That's the kinda guy I am. :augie

    These towing ratings can be conservative (Yes... I know your handle...).

    Like OK - these ratings fine for flatlanders - but tow that combo on RT903 Nesky to Hazleton and you can smoke the tranny without a cooler...

    If it's easy to plumb a tranny cooler into the Liberty, def worth it. Don't know if the Lib has tranny temp gauge out the door...


    HEY MCTAVISH!!! You like the Libertys'?

    Some models aren't bad. I think they look good lifted though and almost bought one to do just that. Too bad the fuel mileage is kinda shit in some of them which is why I didn't. I really expected them to be better than 14-17mpg on a good day.
