Me and Max loaded my Volvo early this morning in the trailer and left the shop and headed for Jönköping, it’s finally time to get the truck and trailer painted! =D

The last time you will see it looking like this! 🙂 Really look forward to see the result in a couple of weeks from now when Björn Johansson and the rest of the guys at Kaross & Lackteknik in Jönköping have made their thing to the rig!

This day started kind of early around 6 this morning!…

Like you can see even Green Glenn is really tired after this day, hope the guys at KLT will take care of him! 😉


Me, Max and Dad did spend the day unloading the Chevelle and a lot of necessary stuff that we need during the winter from the trailer into the shop.

The winter is here again…

Of course it ended up with some stuff and a mess… Will fix that during next week! 😉


Time well spent! After a couple of days outside in the cold rainy weather and some money spent the last time on the rig me an Max took it today and made the yearly control and everything went smooth, both the truck and the trailer are in good condition and are good to use for one more year on the road! Easy to say that I’m satisfied right now! =)

Feels good to have our own rig!

Back at the shop again, but it’s not time yet for the winter rest. More to come, stay tuned! 🙂


Yesterday evening me and Max took the truck and trailer for a test drive after some work on the trailer!

Ready to go again, the plan for this year was to work on the truck and trailer to make it better and closer to ready and like I want to have it! But instead it’s been a lot about repairing brakes and boring stuff like that… Would been better to work on the inside of the trailer, but there is a new year next year for that I guess! =)

Last week me and Max took off all the wheels to get some new rubber on, been on my way to do this since I bought the trailer… but priorities and money have stopped that!…

When the wheels where off I just made a quick check on the brakes and realized that we didn’t have any brakes at all on one wheel….

For some reason the brake arm was loose… Doesn’t feels so fun that things just falls apart….

Time for new tires! A huge thanks to our partner Tobbe at T.Grundström Plåtslageri for letting me borrow his truck to transport the tires! 🙂

And a HUGE thanks to Jörgen Berg at Lastvagnsverkstan in Smedjebacken for giving me a super price on the tires and also helping me change them on a Friday evening! =)

When changing tires I took the opportunity to take a lower profile to get the total trailer height down a little bit!..

When I got back to the shop again I found some other problems with the brakes working outside the shop between the rain showers that I made some washers for to hopefully solve the problem with the snap rings not staying in the axle groove…. and then I also found a couple of bent brake hoses that I needed to change.

Then I found even more problems and spent the whole day yesterday outside in the cold weather in the rain and sun at the same time of course! 😉 adjusting the brakes and then finally late last night we got the new tires on the trailer and got it back on the ground and took it for a test drive, everything seems to work like it should right now and I hope it will continue like that now! 🙂
