The Keys Please

Chamber Takes Delivery 5.22.14Unlike the process at Peterson Ford or any other auto dealership when the ignition keys are handed over to the proud new vehicle owner, the keys with this delivery were to the hitch lock.

Taking those keys was Oconto Falls Area Chamber of Commerce President Gail Yatso and the vehicle was the custom built trailer that will be part of the grand prize ATV package given away at the Falls Fest raffle on September 28th.

The trailer was built by seniors in the advanced welding class at Oconto Falls High School. The trailer features a removable kayak rack that could also be used for ladders, lumber, or other long items. The beautiful wood deck of the trailer is a combination of cherry and oak and is car show truck bed quality.

The wood was donated by John Senn of Senn Landscaping. Tires and tire mounting were donated by Peterson Ford.

The tailgate is an unique fold down design that adds versatility to the trailer. The custom designed trailer came out so well that a second one is being fabricated as another end of the year project and will be offered for sale by the OFHS Tech Ed Department.
