Think your talking about the grain trailer shown on the box behind the truck...would be cool but most just build them from a box trailer kit.  Me Id like to see a portable car/scrap yard crusher trailer kit.

I'd like to find a 53' step deck trailer. I used to pull one hauling hay.

 

Hey Mark! I seen a magazine article somewhere that someone built a portable car crusher trailer. If I find the picture again, I'll message you where the article was located.

Luc, I have an old article from C.M. Kroack about detailing the AMT Peterbilt 359 (ok, it's a little dated) and converting the AMT Fruehauf Van Trailer into a 1970s era grain trailer. PM me your address, and I'll get a copy into the mail for you.
