Picked this trailer up for taking the bikes with us. My wife favors short trips on the bikes in fair weather. It tows alot better than the Vnose which I use for my other hobby, R/C Aircraft. Almost not even noticed on the back of the toyota van. I also have the enclosed trailer setup for the bikes but it is a tight fit in a 6X10 Vnose.

My main reason for the open trailer is cost of towing with a toyota van. I use the Vnose mainly for my planes, no weight in it. If you are carrying more than one bike in an enclosed trailer and you have a truck, get the 12 foot vnose because you need to stagger the bikes also look at a tandem axle.

Nice Planes. Looks like a Sukhoi & either Edge 540 or Extra 300. I use to fly them. It was a blast. Most of mine were 60 size but I had a 1/3 scale Staudecker & a 1/4 scale Laser 200. That Laser was fast as heck. I had smoke on both of them. With Kids & work, I ran out of time. I still have 4 havging in garage. I think one day I will take them out & fly ( or crash )
Oh yeah nice color 9:bigthumbsup:

Only about $4K. The good news is, when you do make a mistake and put it in the ground, usually everything is ok except for the airframe. That is only around $1K

It is made by Triton all aluminum about 390 lbs. Channels in the aluminum floor for tie down brackets. Very easy to load the bikes, my wifes m50 has a 3 inch lowering kit no problems with it scraping when loaded. There are quite few options, like stake sides made of aluminum for it. I have 2 condor wheel chalks mounted, that I can mount in either trailer.

That is a nice trailer! I have a 6x10 v-nose and can get both my 109 and my wife's S50 in it, but it's a tight fit. Just barely enough room to stagger them. I've been thinking of getting one of the Kendon trailers for some of the shorter tows.

I used to fly RC too. Never got into more than the .60 size but lots of folks in my club had quarter scale planes. Awesome hobby but very nerve wracking. I still have several planes, 3 transmitters, 5 or 6 engines, and lots of spare parts. I think anyone that does RC has lots of spare parts. :D
