been there done that!dad retired from okla gas and electric. anytime he decided to build anything he would haul a bunch more poles and crossarms home. he got the bright idea once he would build him a hitch on the back of his old studebaker pickup and buy a old pole trailer that they were getting rid of at work. Well, he got it rigged up and loaded about twenty poles on the old trailer and started to the farm.the old trailer was one of those extendable ones that had two axles front and back,like a cotton trailer and a tounge about eight ft long with a old pintle hitch on it.OGE had used it behind a crawler tractor hauling poles off road. he made it pretty well because he didnt have to stop,but there was one really steep hill. i was about twelve and was following him in the old car. as soon as he hit the brakes that old trailer started whipping around and it finally hit the sand on the side of the road and turned over. luckily the rigged up hitch he had made snapped off the truck. of course when the trailer turned over the chains on the poles broke and they went all over the hyway. we rolled them down in the ditch to clear the road ,finally took what was left of the chains and pulled the trailer back over and drug it home. poles laid there until he finaly got down there with a old hydra lift and a proper trailer to pick them up. that pole trailer sat out in the pasture for probably thirty years until we finally cut it up for scrap. a few guys stopped wanting to buy it to haul pipe on but he never sold it ,told them it was a death trap!
