Looking to buy a 40' gooseneck...
« on: August 16, 2015, 10:04:22 AM »
Ok guys... I finally have a truck up for the task and the boys are getting to that age. I'm in the market for a 40' car hauler. I'd like 32' in the cargo bay with the 8' overhang. Prefer the additional 12" ceiling. If anyone knows of anything out there available, let me know before I have one built and spend too much money!!!

look on racing junk .com in the trailer classifieds section. otherwise ordering new allows you to have frame members moved for crapper tanks with a taller roof and two roof airs

Seen some of those, looking to stay around $15,000 and make most of it my own… The one for $10,000 has not met the reserve and I'm not sure I want to go that big yet

There's one out here that's been for sale for a while.  It'd need some work but the price is right............

http://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/rvs/5143241816.html

I'm looking for one with living quarters in it.  I saw this one a while ago but it's just too much of a project for me.

Brian, I think it is 8.5' wide... The measurements he gave were from inside wheel well. If it is a 8.5' wide, I may be interested. I would re do it entirely ripping out most everything. Good thing is most everything is there. Just need to configure it differently... Man more I think of it... She sure is a project.... If it had a bare interior that was finished with a decent floor and insulated, heat and a/c... I'd buy it all day long! That's the size windows are a plus!!!

quote 7'9" in width not including the wheel well. The distance from the back of the rear of the garage to the wheel well is 10' and the distance between the two wheel wells is 77".  quote

it would be 82" or 83" between wheel wells  and 8' or 8' 2" wide inside of walls if it were 8'.5"/ 102" wide
