That might be ok for the people that can get to the show but what about the rest of us that can't get there or are on the other side of the world...

That is how I feel about the shows in other countries like the German shows. I think it is cool to get first dibs on some new products for once.

Question Re: New Lowboy trailer

$1995.00 ........holy cow man, I know I would never in a million years be able to do that. I wish Rick at PMD the best of luck with it but wow. Why spend $2k on a trailer when the tractor is $500-$1000 fully built. I think things like that are a little disrespectful to the hobby, since you have lil home made vendors selling lowboys for less the half that price. But I don't mean to disrespect anyone that's just my opinion. After all majority of my truck is built with parts from PMD. I just dont see how the trailer unless its hydraulic equipped should be more expensive then the tractor full of electronics that pull it.....its just crazy to me.

Ya, it's the Barrett Jackson of RC equipment if ya know what I mean.
I've seen it in person, top quality, great craftsmanship... But 2 grand for a trailer?.... To be honest if I did have the money laying around, I'd buy one in a heartbeat

Here's my $.02

I agree, $2k is a lot of money. However, I always thought the same about getting a hydraulic excavator. At $5,000, I thought, no way I'd ever have one. Well, I've owned one for a few years now. I had to sell 5 trucks to get it, but I've got it and am now back to having 4 rigs. Expensive, absolutely, but never say never!

I've got 4 1:1 semi tractors, each of them pulling a hopper bottom trailer worth over twice what the trucks cost, the real world translation seems about right...I don't like it but it's true...
