I feel like a little troublemakin kid banging my silverware on the table.....

Pictures!!! I want pictures!!!!
You will get them, I just need a couple days.
Tomorrow I am taking a group from Saskatchawan out for a ride in IP for the day. So possibly Friday I will have a few hours to start taking photos of the new trailer.

Hopefully it snows soo much you are stuck at home.
ONLY IN MY DREAMS!


Only once since I have lived in South East Idaho has it snowed enough to CLOSE down the Highway that goes to Island Park. And as it was several people drove it anyway for UNBELEIVABLE riding !!

The other guy ask what the MSRP was. Not how much to buy one off the lot. I hope u don't ever pay MSRP for a truck.

JUST read posts 130-134.
Nobody said anything about PAYING MSRP.
Just comparing numbers.

Okay, for those of you that are eager to see some of the major changes that Mirage made to the 2019 trailer, here are a couple quick snapshots for you to chew on. More will follow when the sun is shining and the trailer is out in its native environment!

GONE is the cloth propane tank cover!
I hated that thing. When it was seriously cold it was VERY hard to remove the cloth cover from the trailer to fill the tanks.
This one should be impervious to bitter cold temps!

Added a new drip shield over the front ramp.
Small change, but another welcome one none the less.
Little things like this add up on the over all trailer!

HUGE CHANGE
The entry door is finally on the DRIVER SIDE of the trailer rather then the passenger side!
Maybe I am crazy but I am so happy that the fuel fill location and entrance are on the SAME side! All the major activity on the trailer seems to happen on the left driver side. I am super happy to see this!

Another small change that is super welcomed!
The fuel door now uses the same KEY and locking mechanism as all the doors on the trailer! Now the trailer is down to just TWO keys rather than three and MUCH more secure against unwanted entry!

This is a shot from the back of the trailer looking forward to better visualize the biggest change to the structure of the trailer which is the result of having moved the entrance door for the right side to the left side. Now the heater is right next to bother of the storage lockers and the boot/glove dryer. This SHOULD result in MUCH better heat flow to both hot boxes and the glove/boot dryer as there is NO hot air conduit going over the door!

This also opens up the whole rear end of the trailer for new possibilities..

Another small incremental improvement, that makes a good trailer better. We now have a MASTER POWER SWITCH!. I am a BIG fan of being absolutely certain the batteries are FULLY disconnected when not in use! there is also a full fuse box mounted above that is not shown in the photo.

In all of my trailers I have installed guides of one manner or another to the floor and ramps. This year I am pleased to see that mirage has added edge guides to the ramp! Another step in the right direction towards making a better more user friendly trailer!
This will be much clearer when the trailer is on the snow and the doors open
