Just kidding. That truck exists only in my dreams! The trailer is real, but the truck is not. Well, the truck IS real, but it is not mine! Admit it, I had you going for a minute though.

Hot Duck-
Do you have a side view with the aluminum wheels?
And is that the standard aluminum wheel style they use?
Thanks-

Question

Hot Duck,

Are you have a fifth wheel conversion installed on your F550????? I know that bad boy has enough power to do the job.

Why doesn't Myco cover the back of the fenders? I looked at a boat that was on a Myco that had several rock chips right at the backside of the fenders.

Thunder32 : I don't have a picture of the wheels on this particular trailer, but here is a picture of a set of their standard wheels on the Cigarette trailer.

DPT MOTORSPORTS : My truck has a gooseneck hitch in the bed. It is the kind where the ball comes out and is stored back in the hole upside-down until it is needed. The loops for the safety chains are spring loaded and are also flush with the bed floor until needed. With the bed mat in there covering the hole and the safety chain loops, you would never know the hitch is there. That's the only reason why I have a bed mat in there. The Rhino Lining works to protect the bed, but the bed mat covers that hitch and it's parts.

As for the truck, it should do the job pretty well. It's not a Peterbilt, but it is still well within it's weight limits. We'll find out how it does pretty soon, huh? Maybe we will be able to justify that Peterbilt after all.

US1 Fountain : That's a good questions and I guess they have a reason that they leave it open. Possibly for ease of replacing a fender should you ding one or something. Maybe it is so that they can use a production fender. It could be to make it easier to rinse the brakes after being in the water. I honestly don't know. I have no doubt, however, that they could close in the back side of the fender if you wanted it done.

After reading your post, I took some time and went through some old pictures and I have never had a boat trailer that didn't have the back side of the fenders open. I have had Load Rite, Eagle, EZ Loader, Owens & Sons, Myco and a few others in the past and they have all been open.

From looking at some web pages, it seems that some other custom manufacturers such as Manning and Extreme have built them both ways. Again, like these manufacturers, I am sure that Myco could close the backside if you wanted it done.

I guess that I am fortunate that it has never been a problem, but if it ever becomes and issue, it would not be any big deal to close in the back side of the fenders.

My Trail Rite had the panels behind the fenders. 1/4" treated plywood with bunk carpet stapled on. Just clamped to some brackets. Easy to do if you need em. Keeps the mud, rocks etc off the boat.
BTW...that Myco is a beauty.
