thanks roscoe. we have decided on a 14ft single swing. i wanted the slide type but was told it had more issues later because of the chain. i have found the gate i want at, camino real.i want the old rusted look since our home will have a new orleans feel. once i spec'd. out that gate, i couldnt justify that $ amount, since i dont want ornate. so, if i can find someone locally, could this gate be made cheaper? is this something we could install ourselves? does a solar panel do the job or should we use a battery? since needing at 14ft, would a double be better in the long run? im just not sure how to shop for any of this..thanks for any input and guidence that you may have..

Well you could install a couple rollers in the ground to drive your 4-wheel drive truck onto and use the power of the drive wheels connected to a gear box to open and close the gate... Then just put the truck into 4-wheel drive to use the front wheels to pull the truck off the rollers...
