This year we are aiming to be next level in the aspects of Big Ticket Raffle items at Horsepower Fest.

We have decided to raffle off a Dolly Trailer this year at Horsepower Fest!

Michael Burks donated this trailer. It's in rough condition. Brian Thompson volunteered to the task of getting it from Hemet to Pomona where the Back Door of MadSkillz Fabrication is located. This was a task because the trailer was missing wheels and the tongue was cut off at some point.

Nick Valore aka MadSkillz will be cutting this thing up and doing his magic to convert this to a Dolly Trailer. This trailer will then be raffled off at Horsepower Fest which is benefiting The Norona Effect, a local charity in the Lake Havasu area.

The trailer will be straightened out and rust ridden parts will be removed and replaced. When done, it will be complete with a new everything including coupler, floater bar, axles, spindles, bearings, hubs, leaf springs, u-bolts, hangers, shackles, tie plates, wheels, DOT tires, lights, wiring, paint, bunks, etc. This thing will be fully loaded and ready for the road. It will even have a swing away tongue and cut away in the rear so you can change your pump hardware easily. Bunks will be set up for a v-bottom style boat or compatible gullwing.

Attached are some of the pictures of how the trailer was when donated. Follow this thread for updates of this project - up to the winner of the Raffle.

Raffle will be at Horsepower Fest on November 4th, 2017 at the Avi. Tickets will be sold at a later determined price. Winner must be present to win.
