Trade your Crew Cab PU for a regular cab and fix the box to carry your stuff.

Re: Transporting Wings

A cargo trailer works well. I have, love, & wouldn't be without one. The minivan is just for getting to work, and hauling a bird with me, should I need to stop on the way home to check on my little buddies as the good wife calls them.

Re: Transporting Wings

The Crew cab STAYS! I use it to do my job, and planes are expensive, the gear I generate revenue (to spend on hobbies) out values the planes by about 5:1. My off farm gear is all for working at height, you see, I'm not very well grounded (or at least until the guys see me fly a Holden)!

I can build a top for the electric over hydralic part of the truck box (the rare 8' box) and have a fairly decent shop on wheels.......

Re: Transporting Wings

Why not just get a topper for the crewcab?

Re: Transporting Wings

Check the pic of my 1/4 Tigermoth @ Kitchener.

The grey box behind is a carboard box wrapped in duct tape with hotwired foam guides in each end to keep the wings separate (i.e. interplane mounts, pushrods etc. don't impact each other).

Works well for me, inexpensive, protects against most 'bumps' and is water resistant.
