Someoneís Wait Is Nearing The End

I like the blue plastic, when I got mine the front was covered with bugs.

Delivery

Hi Paul
Iíve seen his rig with a load on twice in the past couple of years. I note this Escape has the light over the storage box. I think this would be a good feature. The plastic cover would make that initial cleanup a lot easier. Those big Wisconsin June Bugs smack harder than a Badger lineman. Whatís the last thing that goes through a bugís mind when he hits the windshield?

Hi:Iowa Dave... In answer to your question... His Ascend!!! When we spotted this rig at the Best Western in the big Chill, it had 2 trailers on board. The forward one had the covering. Alf

Could it be that he was just hit by an Iowa linebacker?

Man you guys are on the gas. No wonder I gotta be so quiet when I come to your rallies. Reminds me of the old Hank Williams Jr classic. “ I’m standing in the shadow of a very famous man. I have to steal errr get some new material.

My guess is that it was the front trailer on a 2 trailer load, and he's already delivered the first one. I like how the flatbed has ball mounts on the centerline to attach to the trailers. With such a system, all you need to do to completely secure the trailer is tie down an axle.

I wonder what is on the driver's side over the refer side vent, some sort of blemish? Also something is hanging out of the rear escape window?

On edit, it maybe a reflection off something parked nearby
