Cheap trailer tap plug for Canadians

It's tough enough trying to find 80-86 taps and when you do they sure ain't that price. Get on down to the nearest princess auto !

Re: Cheap trailer tap plug for Canadians

Hehe, was just over there last week and noticed that, along with lots of other stuff for making your own trailers and such. Nice prices, one of these days Ill make my own trailer for hauling as Im unsure of being able to buy a new or 1, 2 years old truck. [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Cheap trailer tap plug for Canadians

Do you guys get trailer trader out there like us Easterners ?

There's usually guys in there practically giving away trailers they bled their guts out building and already titled and licensed.

Sure there's a lot of dreamers in there too, but hey let their phones rot and hit the good deals.

Why kill yerself and maybe pay more ? Ever since MIGS made it into every other garage the quailty of homebuilt trailers has gone way up !

Should get it, we get Truck Trader, Auto Trader, etc. I will have to look more closely.

Ever since I was in Australia I have been interested in the trailer/camping units that they have there. Kinda like a tent trailer but built for off-roading/outback with lots of storage, room for supplies, etc.

Slickerthanyou

yup and you spent real money(though I've seen them way over $40 American so you did alright) ! $9.99 CDN is pocket change for you guys.

You know what a tightwad I am, so getting this at that price made my day !

I don't even have a hitch yet, but I struck while the iron was hot ! It's really tough for us 86ers to find pre-87 plug in taps. Truth is that's the first one I'd ever seen.

Trust those Aussies to come up with a super tough tent trailer to show up their Sheila commonwealth cousins (us Canucks).

I'd hope they'd build it snake-proof and spider-proof. Everytime I see that crazy Aussie on TV who chases snakes and other venomous creatures around, he seems to have no problem finding all kinds of deadly creatures to molest, right there in Australia.

I've got a Scottish cousin who married and Aussie and is always inviting me down. Maybe I'll go one winter
