Looking for a hobby trailer

My Location: EDM, AB T6K1B4

My planes seem to be getting bigger and I find myself in the need of an enclosed trailer to house and transport them. Ideally a 6 X 10ft v nose with ramp door and 6' 6" interior height. The cargo mate " E series " is one that interests me. I'll consider anything that can haul a few airplanes. Let me know what you have. Thanks- Steve

Re: Looking for a hobby trailer


Go for the 12' v nose it will give you room for a work station in the front of the trailer . it will pull the same as a 10 foot and cost about the same . I have a 12' and could not imagine cutting 2' off . cheers Roger

Re: Looking for a hobby trailer


I agree, I just moved up to a 6x12 with about 6'4 or 5 interior. On the right is a 2x8 work bench between the rear door and the side door, can mount a couple of 50cc planes on the table. On the left are two 42% planes stacked, bags of wings on the walls, all of lifes necessities within and under the work table. Still room for more but the way it is I can walk in between the planes and table.

Re: Looking for a hobby trailer


I picked up a 6x10 last year and it will do ok. Should have got a 8x24 in hindsight...Lol.. Because you just never know what you might find to put in it!
I have 6, 72" - 90" span airplanes and field equipment, and they will all go in assembled except 1( smallest one, go figure). So it will be how you make room for things.(size doesnt matter right!!! LOL)...Still happy with the 10 for now..James

Re: Looking for a hobby trailer


Thanks for the input guys. I started looking at the 12 footers and I can buy one out of High River cheaper than a 10 ft here in Edmonton. There doesn't seem to be any used V noses for sale out here. Ill have to bite the bullet and buy new. I'm guessing that's what most want now. yes, if I have to live in it, the extra 2 feet will make a difference.LOL

Advice I was given, You will never know if it is too big but you will always know if it is too small

Not to Hi jack the thread. But if you are planning on buying from FOT in High River their customer service is horrible. Make sure you compare apples to apples.

On the contrary I dealt with FOT trailers and Jason helped me out with the best service I've had while shopping around. I wouldn't go anywhere else...
