    That looks nice. Congrats.

    When I had one of those Miller trailers, I had to drill a couple of holes on the inside of the fender to allow air to escape. The trailer would float.

    Thanks, I had a guy i worked for years ago that bought one new, always really liked it. It did come with a set of Bassett Twisty headers but i think i am going to keep it like it is.

    The later years trailers were built in by a local Santa Maria welder and built by with box tubing (only tiny drain holes) , combining that with 4 air filled tires, alloy wheels and glass fenders make the trailer "light on its feet"

    Very cool find. I agree, I would keep it like it is and run the logs. They make cruising more enjoyable and are also more family friendly. Besides, It's a FORD! I've heard even headers won't help those.
