Trailer Success, Sort Of

Over the hills and through the woods again—we were off in search of a new to us trailer for hauling the jeep and ATV’s when we travel south.  Lewistown, MT is about 2.5 hours from us—and a beautiful drive.  We pulled our big one ton Ford dually pick-up out of the storage barn and we were off with Ms. Emmi about 9:30.  We just rolled back up the driveway with trailer in tow about 5pm after stopping and having a hamburger with Nat. 

IMG_9314It’s a 28 foot custom built cargo trailer—we are trying to out do John and Brenda in length when we head down the road pulling the trailer behind the motorhome! SmileIt is very nice with diamond plated flooring, lots of tie downs, cabinets, lighting, an electric jack—pretty nice for the cowboy!

We have to go about halfway back to Lewiston tomorrow evening—the young man who sold us the trailer had not had his seller signature notarized on the title—and do you think we could find a notary public in small town Montana on a Sunday—nope, not happening.  So he is getting the title notarized tomorrow and meeting us halfway—in Harlowton. 

Well, you can tell how much we get out and go to the movies—the movie was LAST Vegas, not Las Vegas and it was delightful, extremely funny—we all thoroughly enjoyed it!  But the best part—Geoff and Nancy have a daughter who lives in Big Timber—she met us at the theater and gifted us with 4 movie tickets!  What a sweet, generous thing to do!!  I think Beth is afraid her Mom and Dad are becoming recluses up the Boulder along with the rest of us—I think she was glad they were “getting out!”  Whatever, it was just the sweetest thing for her to do!

It’s good to be home!  Look at this incredible show Mother Nature put on for us coming up the Boulder tonight.





  1. Good looking trailer, and awesome sunset pictures. Wanda and I went to see that movie last Tuesday. As you said, it was quite good. Couldn't believe how old those guys were.:-)

  2. Like that first sunset pic especially. Looks like you're all set to head south after the holidays.

  3. Beautiful sunsets. Harlowtown is a old favorite of mine, the roof blew off our first motorhome a mile or so east of there.

  4. Love AZ sunsets but this last year in Montana we had some gorgeous ones and you got another one. Nice trailer. The cowboy should be more than happy with that one. We loved that movie. Had ourselves a good laugh.

  5. Wow, nice trailer.... Please ask Mr Mike if he would take a look at my underground watering system when he gets in the area... I don't think its working right and might have a leak. thanks!

  6. Great trailer..How do you plan to get the horses and "stuff" down to the South 40? One can never have too many toys, but the logistics sometimes becomes an issue....

  7. Looks like you bought a great trailer, nice to have it safe and sound when heading down the road!

  8. With a Jeep and ATV's, you are going to have quite a load behind your MH.

    Beautiful sunset photos.
