  1. I have the PR187 because there will be times when I will be hauling my 2 136" Vectors and 121 Vector. Just like when I had the PR147, there are many times when I tow alone (single sled). When I do, I load from the back, and drive right up to the front. This gives you sufficient tongue weight and the trailer tows like a dream.
  2. Sudbury has been trying to discourage visiting sledders for years. They just don't groom anywhere near the motels, so you are welcome to ride STP if you tolerate 20 - 30 K of moguls first. Or trailer at the start and end of each day to a groomed trailhead.
  3. Just don't go through Oakwood.
  4. That was Community Cycle which was the building that Custom John would later occupy.
  5. In doing a cleanup of the garage, I came across the Bill of Sale for my 94 VMax. My son and I test rode the sled in the field behind the dealership in Sharon prior to signing the deal. There was a fair amount of snow in the field and riding was OK for a a test track. The deal was signed November 1, 1999!
  6. I concur with that. My previous truck was a 2000 6.5 L Turbo Diesel Chev 3500 LB Dually. It towed stuff like it wasn't there, but, as it was an occasional use vehicle, the high cost of maintenance killed me. When I upgraded in '13, I went with a F250 LB with a 6.2L Gasser. I absolutely hate the way it shifts, but it will tow, even though it seems to struggle even with a 'light' trailer. However, the maintenance costs have been much more palatable, and when you put your foot down, it will downshift 30 or 40 gears (OK, I might be exaggerating a bit) and finally get up and go. Then, it will pass anything except a gas station. Since I retired in 15, I have used the truck a little more regularly, but it is still not a high mileage use (120K Km) over 7 years. For my usage, I would not go back to diesel from my past experience.
  7. I went from a clamshell to the PR147. I have no experience with the 167 but I loved my PR147. I expect that I will have occurrences to have all 3 sleds (2 - 136" and 1 - 121) so I upgraded last year to a PR - 187. The trailer tows very nicely and I have no regrets.
  8. BP Thanks for the heads up about the EZ Adjust. Ordered it for my Vector.
  9. I found that HID bulbs and the lights reaimed for high beam seemed to work for me.
  10. And so, if you're not here, she called in her lover Just kidding, O2
  11. When I first took delivery of my previous trailer it was late November. To install ski guides, etc, I used a propane heater to make the work a little more comfortable. Worked well until it started raining inside the trailer from all the condensation.
  12. Sorry to hear about your back problems. Good luck with the sale.
  13. If trails were open today, here is a real life example of how this would work? I am in York Region, but our groomers are based out of Durham. Our trails that go through York would have to be groomed from Durham so that the York trails are groomed. The York trails would be open, but the freshly groomed trails to York would have to be closed. That means that all the Durham riders would not be able to ride their local trails because they lead to York, even though their are is 'clean'. I think this policy is going to lead to many people ignoring these 'closed' trails. It is an unworkable policy.
