Smart man! I just brought some tunes and rocked out while I was in the parking lot that I5 was on the way home.

Have you checked with the retailers in Washington that this Purple Line system will work with US trailers and the Dexter axle set up? Seems to me you will need some reinforcement blocks in the body for attachment, something that may not be possible with the Escape?

I talked to a guy at Purple Line and sent him a bunch of photos of the trailer. He says they've been installed on an Escape before and I verified it's the correct (fiberglass) Escape trailer in case he was thinking of another brand. There aren't any retailers in WA unfortunately. And I'm not too keen to drive to CA for it so they'll ship it here and Dirk can install.

The movers are attached to the frame, not the body - there would be too much force on the body, with any style of trailer construction.
