Do you like to haul things like a trailer behind your truck?
Well the Metro VDC could use your help. As you may be aware, we have a new, well different, trailer that holds all the things that go on a weekend. It is no longer a semi trailer, it is one that can be pulled with a truck. The trailer is 7' wide x 14' long and weighs about 7000 pounds. Here are the requirements for the vehicle to tow the trailer.
- 2" receiver hitch.
- Electric Brake Controller.
- 7 pin wire harness receiver.
- A vehicle that will tow 7000 + pounds. Most 1/2 ton trucks will do so.
The trailer is stored in Maple Grove, MN and we need to tow it to and from the churches that are holding the weekends. Typically we drop the trailer off 2-3 days prior to the men's weekend and pick it up after the women's weekend. The organization and accomplishment part is making sure that the bins needed to hold the weekend are back on the trailer in the locations they need to be and secured down for towing.
If this interests you, please contact Merle Waldron. He will train you as to what to look for and how to hook it up and tow it.
Thanks for your interest.
