cross country trip to pick up the car trailer - part 5
Arriving home and I could not wait but to put the Mini onto the trailer to check everything out.
We have quite a car culture here in the neighborhood. One of my neighbor just bought this JDM classic. To me one down side is it is automatic.
just a quick and dirty rough loading of the Mini onto the trailer
I drove around the blocks slowly without bothering to use any tie down strap
a bit of judge by the eyeballs experiment it seems that the Mini need to be placed very rear biased to achieve a low tongue weight of within 500 lb
I gave my Dyson to my family as they are much more expensive in Canada; I bought a new one that is a car kit - what timing
I was wise to buy a 4-pack of these; one for the hitch
the tool box seems small but look is deceiving; time will tell that it is as big as they can reasonably make it; the size is just perfect when all things considered
at first glace it looks strange that the tool box sits so high and is supported on the bottom; examine it closer one appreciate like all thing Trailex design is well thought out and no corner cut
I took the road train to PIR for a 2 day weekend track event camping out there for 2 nights
I acquired this e-bike as track side transportation
the Trailex 8045 proved to be a perfect car trailer for Brunnhilde, for the Mini as well as the Porsche
here is a teaser foto with the GT4 from the most recent track event; once the trailer hitch has been flipped and the car properly located the weight distribution is perfect to stay within the 500/5000 lb tongue and tow weight limits
