Until I see Robin Williams or George Carlin say it on the internet, I don't believe it!
Well, yeah, this could explain that!
Thanks, took a year, was worth it - kept it off two plus years now. Hate to make internet joke, but need to be leaving for gym in 26 minutes....
You may have got a little better mileage without the airplane on the roof...
Depends on whether they had both propellers going
The lift generated from the wings relieves some of the weight from the trailer's wheels.
Thereby allowing for less friction and increased MPG.
Does he have a treadmill on the roof-- cause if he'd mount one up I bet that sucker could take off.
You guys are nothing but a pack of cards!
Well, the wife thought every pic like this I shot was stupid, regardless of where we were, so that she did not drive off while I was running out to shoot the pic is about all I can expect I guess.
There's a couple of wierd ass campgrounds around Whitehorse, let me tell you. We never did get to camp at the hot springs due to reconstruction - looked like they really needed it.
I thought Whitehorse was a dump myself. Just a big trailer park.
I sold my 28ft Coleman and just bought (like 3 hours ago) a 2013 Jay Flight Swift 185. Smaller is better. The Coleman was nice but much too big for my needs.
I think my first mod will be to take out the settee and replace it with a nice leather swivel recliner for me
And then carry a Coleman camping folding single bed in the back of the truck for when needed. Every man needs a comfortable chair
Nice little rig, but I thought you'd stated you needed something large enough for four adult males to sleep one-to-a-bed for bicycle outings?
F*@*'ers would never go
So it's all about me now
And they can bring a tent if we do a big guy trips.
Nice, looks a bit familiar
I like your interior lay out better, but the deal I got on this little trailer, I couldn't pass it up.
The tongue extension and rear receiver hitch was money well spent.
Love it RR. What did it cost you for the extension?
I'm curious to know this too if you don't mind. As I want to do it to my trailer.
Also curious how the tongue weight is now, especially with your bike on there.
The extension cost me $1,200. I have friends that do all kinds of metal fab work that could have done it, but I felt better having it done by someone who specializes in custom trailers and trailer fabrication, so I took it to the Fabshopz http://www.fabshopz.com/index.html to make sure it was done right.
As far as tongue weight, I haven't put it on a scale yet (I want to and will) but according to my calculations the tongue weight with my DRZ on it is about 600lbs, and that's why I have the WD bars for the Colorado.
And towing it with the Blazer.....................the Blazer doesn't even know it back there
The frame was beefed up and I swapped out the 13in wheels for 14in to increase the weight rating for the tires.
These pics were taken after I mounted the rail to the tounge and I didn't like the way the bike was riding on it, so I took it back to have a brace welded up on it which worked great.
Thanks! And thanks for more pics. I'm definitely going to take these pictures with me to my fab guy. And $1200 doesn't sound unreasonable at all.
I'll wager you're over 600# though. You probably started around 300# and adding all that steel and a 300#+ bike, your propane tank and tool box, you must be pushing 700#. Good call on the WDH.
Still a great job and I can't wait to do mine. Good call on upgrading your wheels and tires too. I went from 14's to 15's just for the much greater availability and variety of tires.
And seriously, do the math. 13" tires are spinning like a mofo at 65mph.
Where'd you get that rail for the bike, btw?
I've seen that trailer in person and its definitely a quality job.
