5x8 Trailer


Here it is... my darling 5x8 enclosed trailer that I haul all over town. Somehow I manage not to get in too tight of spots that I can't get it turned around. I used to be pretty intimidated by trying to back it up, now it's not so bad. I can fit 6 chairs between my trailer and my car. So it saves me lots of time. I don't know what I used to do without her.

I love your trailer! I am seriously thinking about getting one. Great advertising on the side too.

I bought it used and put a remnant piece of carpet in the bottom, so I can throw fabric in there, that way I don't have to worry about it getting ruined or dirty. Then I had a client do some vinyl lettering for me for trade.

Love the truck! I'm just wondering if you have to have a special kind of sewing machine to do these slipcovers.

I do have industrial sewing machines...they make everything SOOO much faster, and they go through just about everything without knocking your tension out. I have a Juki machine and a Brothers serger. You can pick them up used for about $400-$500 off craigslist.com

Boy do I wish I lived in Utah. Not just because it's beautiful but because you are there. I want slip covers for my 4 year old Flexsteel sofa that isn't as durable as they say they are..Anyhoozzle.
I was over at PB and they have slip covers on clearance for like 120. for each sofa. Considering it isn't 1200. I am intrigued. But I wonder if I should find somebody to make them or are these ones okay? Thanks! Love what you're doing too.

Hi Shelly I have a question for you I have a potential client that would like to have an 8 piece sectional slipcovered I have not done one before and am having trouble finding a fabric estimator for it I noticed that your couch in the cabin is a sectional do you remember how much fabric you used?? I would so appreciate any info/insite you have to offer. thank you

Cyndi--if there are back cushions as well as seat cushions you are looking at 40-45 yds. If there aren't I'd say 30-35 yds. I'd probably have them get an extra 5 yds to be safe...because 8 seat cushions is a lot of fabric.
