    Rich, I get what you're looking for, you're more searching for the trailer that gets them from the fields.  We only load bulk potatoes but we never go out in the field we load from a dock with a conveyor system at a storage building. The system has an extending boom that reaches in and drops the potatoes right into the trailer. We put up our boards lock them with freight jacks and haul tail to Berwick Pa.

    Rich, sorry I didn't see this thread before, great looking truck man! Coming along nicely.  I saw you were asking questions about a spud trailer, I'm from PA my dad hauls potatoes to a potato chip company.  If your looking for a what we call spud trailers all we use up this was are insulated Van trailers and reefers without the units.  Most of the guys we ran with use 42 and 45 foot trailers some spread axle and some just regular tandems.  I built a spud wagon from the fruehauf 40 foot van kit now I cut the vent doors in the trailer and made working vent doors on front and back of the trailer.  Is that what you had in mind?

    Yea I got a receipt from PayPal and that was it too. Ok that's all I needed to know. I was worried when I didn't get anything from moluminum.  Thanks guys

    Hey guys I ordered from the moluminum website over a week ago, never received a confirmation email or anything. Does it usually take awhile to hear anything? I emailed Jamie and never had anything back from him either.  Just curious if they normally send a confirmation with a tracking number or anything?

    California Hauler Retro Rhetoric
    Here's my Amt California Hauler I built. I was sort of inspired by kens and claytons builds from this kit. I didn't get too crazy with it chrome Mercury sleeper, blue tinted windows in cab n sleeper and a chrome visor. Just a nice old classic with whitewall tires.









    Thanks for looking guys!

    Guess I'll join the party with my StarCar, I built this to look like the one we have at our salvage yard, then scratch built a dump trailer to match.

    Thanks guys, Clayton I'm glad that KW inspired you, that's one of my favorites. The real truck that inspired that build was like my summer home when I was a child. These snap kits are great I wish they came out with some others in 1/25. I don't get the build time like I used to since I started working at Chef Boyardee. But I have a California hauler in finishing up that I will post when I get a chance.
    Be well guys keep building and be well.

    You known you could be onto something some small modifications to get them to line up properly. Those were the years like my dad had.. Classic style but the door seals leaked air so bad.. Ahh good times
