    Three bridges total, and each one charges a lot more if you have a trailer. Plus the cost of the trailer rental. Why not save money if I can?

    Plus, like I wrote earlier, you can't get a heavy item up the ramp with a typical mobile base. I know this, because I took my mobile base to U-Haul and tried.

How close can you get to where this is to be loaded? I always bring 2x4 pieces 2' to 4' long at least 8-10 pieces. Also a impact driver and cordless skilsaw. With this stuff it is easy to "find a way to get it in the truck".

    Good idea about the impact driver.

    Thanks, Mike.

    (I'm not sure I see the utility in a skilsaw! )

    My camping gear is color coded TENT is in a tan box, sleeping BAGS in a blue box. etc.

    Great idea, thx.
