  • Next job.
  • Shed has been moved. Now the rolling condo needs to be moved, but not far. Forward 40 feet and back 50 feet on a different angle. The Belch Mobile truck has a goose neck hitch, the trailer has a fifth wheel hitch. My plan is to put a block of wood with a hole, over the goose neck ball and set the RC hitch on top. Making sure to secure the RC hitch.

    That will clear the area for the new cottage and Herb can work at leveling the area. I am thinking a single plow to bust the surface dirt, and then the blade to scrape it away.

  • Re: Next job.
  • I was considering an adapter, and will likely need to use one when I sell the rolling condo. But for this short move on flat ground, I will try the cheap and nasty approach. I mean. What could possibly go wrong.

    Seems a much easier job than moving the shed. Will be working on it when I get back to the Island this coming week.
