From the picture from this link this looks to be a ground mounted center. Don't see any wheels in the pic.

Deggeller Weber 1001's



I am pretty sure I remember wheels on that center load, but you might be right. If you look at some of the other pictures in that album you can see his Dutch Wheel, the Music Express, coaster (booked on), and lots of kiddies and majors.

I am pretty sure that the one in Knoebels came from CVS, while their Dutch Wheel was the one Deggeller owned.

Yep, true, but I remember those back wheels jacked up in the air, you know like it is on the Rainbow.

Our trailer mounted Scrambler had removable wheels, easy to take off, but a pain to put them back on.

Ass-holeliners all had removable wheels, yes? On and off pretty easy. Pirate had removable wheels, but you didn't have to remove them. Removable king-pin as well...

Sorry you lost me on that one, you talking about Astroliners? Didn't know the Pirate had removable wheels and kingpin.
