another update- must read

For those of you following this episode with my sleeping spartan, I did find a mobile home moving co. 45 min away from location. Although they have not seen the situation I'm in, they did give me an estimate of $200 to jack up trailer and place axle on. I found an original axle in Oklahoma city, so things are coming together!!! I plan on making the trip in a couple of weeks, and hopefully return with the trailer.
Thumbs up all the way!!

What is going to be so neat about this entire experience is removing her from location. I have seen many stories similar, but not to the xtreme of having to remove the structure around her. I will definitely video all of this and share with you guys!!

sleeping beauty is awake!!!!

I will post pictures soon. Took 3 days to tear down part of the boat house and half a day to weld new springs and mount axle. I believe I should not have gone with the 4 inch drop axle. The axle is way too close to the ground and will probably have to purchase larger tires.
