1923 American LaFrance


Recommended Posts

Sorry, sometimes I can’t help myself. I think it’s beyond a one ton to haul even with a good open trailer and brakes. That’s the world of commercial hauling.........just like collectors who have armor and other such heavy toys. Usually the local fire truck club guys have access to reasonable hauling.........I would try there.

We delivered an ALF Speedster to a client yesterday. We know it weighs 6000 lbs.  He wanted us to take his '24 Pumper/Hose truck back to the shop for some mechanical work.  Glad we didn't winch it onto our virtually new all aluminum closed trailer. We could have pulled it with our Ram Diesel Dually but I'm afraid the trailer might have objected.  Our guess on the weight was 10-12k.

Ever try to straighten an aluminum trailer when it bends? You recycle it and buy a new one. That’s the one objection to them.
