Yes ,it does,Dan. If it wasn't for the crappy,for your needs,bed location and less than easy access to it,you would have gotten a pretty dandy deal. I just didn't feel right letting you buy it. I'm betting the trailer you got though fits your needs much better.

Fabr, when do you sleep? You are always consumed in 5 different projects. I get exhausted just reading about all of the projects you have going on!  mm:

I supervise 21 maintenance men at work and we are doubling in size again this year. Up to 60 million in sales by the end of 2016. I have 3 more production lines to install. It is a ton of work and stretches my brain power to it's limits to coordinate it all.  Maybe that is why I do not have the drive I use to have at home anymore.

You'll still bump your head. I don't remember for sure but it is only about 80" ceiling height. Think the max door height is 76".

 LMAO Homocide no, well, not frequent. rofl  I prefer torture. I find shit jobs for my whiners!
Honestly though, I have a great group of guys. I was a technician for 28 years before this role and I have never worked with such a good group of guys that do not point fingers at each other or blame game. So over all it is not near as bad as it could be. Project management is a bitch for sure though!!!!
