    A real man would drag it off the back of the trailer, throw it over his shoulder and walk uphill along that mile long dirt driveway and place it in the garage. Then he would walk uphill along that mile long dirt driveway to his truck and get on with his day.

    Completely off topic, but given recent current events, only an :censored: would change his avatar to the stars and bars.
    Knowing that it's not polite to call you an :censored:, RC has decided you should be referred to as Anal Orifice.

    That's actually not the stars and bars but I wouldn't expect you to know the difference coming from where you do.

    I stand corrected on the matter of the flag, however, you are still an anal orifice.

    By "stick hauler" I was referring to china cabinets and triple dressers...and even though I drove for a "moving and storage" outfit, we weren't "movers" at all, rather we delivered brand new, real wood furniture straight from the manufacturers located in the furniture capital of the US to homes all over the country. Henredon is well known manufacturer although we referred to them as Hernia-don!! I ran out of the west coast division, first stop was Denver, Co and would empty somewhere on the left coast depending on the routing. Nothing like dragging that 48 footer into Vail or Aspen to deliver to someone's winter retreat!! And I never understood "farmaid"...it was pretty common to deliver a $12K dining room suit and a $8K bedroom suit to a farm house in the middle of nowhere!!

    Aw, the good ole days!!

    Some people think the flag is wrong, and some people think name calling is wrong. Two wrongs don't make a right. Take your parents as an example.

    Easy D, Wait no more, pic of your new trucks, BillyLo has the contract to paint these vehicles, he claims he lost his
    paint brush and does not know when they will be in service.

    Sorry if you were offended but RC calls them like he sees them.
    Would you like us to send you a hurt feelings report to fill out?

    Looks like the box was probably built by Wabash, probably to ensure compatibility with the existing fleet of trailers.

    There needs to be a "Maintain 15mph" sign somewhere inside the vehicle.
