Upgrading my kite trailer.


I have been reducing my personal and business accumulation of kite stuff and I am now ready to sell my old one for a new one.
With all the driving across the USA from one coast to the other to search out the BEST beach and BEST event the world has ever seen, I decided to get something that is a bit better than just a place to stick my stuff while visiting here and there.
I ordered a 2018 desert fox 21SW. A place to store and work on my kites, buggies, boards, and stuff. A place to sleep, eat, and sit on my throne in peace.
Hopefully it comes before I make my next East Coast trip.
The best part is there will be room for the important stuff like the sewing machine, materials for repair and Levi will have his own chair to sleep in. It's been a while since I was able to sleep with my stuff without getting in trouble cause it "doesn't " belong in the bedroom.
IM SO EXCITED......:singing::bigok::wee: now to sell the old trailer.

Yep your right Sam, pictures are required.:thumbup:
As long as the bugs are in the same room it's good.

It even has a retracting cable lock to lock up toys for the night while outside. And everyone likes the bath tube, it's the ultimate party palace.:megan:

I've been thinking about how to get rid of my present trailer.
It's a 7x12 enclosed duel axle with barn doors in the back.
I have been thinking about maybe a raffle to pass on the trailer. Only draw back is it will have to be picked up in Seattle. Any interest?

B K, This is a toy hauler with the ramp rear door? Is the bed lowered from the ceiling when needed? So... you can park a bug or 2 under the bed?

Think you can last a week at Ivanpah or Burningman without having to go in for refills?
Like to rent a bed for Ivanpah next April:D Not booking through Travelosity.

If you don't sell/raffle it, you might consider converting it into a "tiny house"-based workshop... if you are prone to such things.

I would be torn between doing that and turning it into a cat hotel.... but I digress. ;) :D :lol:

Still in the market for a Kitty-Tube before the first snow.

ATB,
Sam

Just for fun showing my trailer for more local events. It is basically kites only but a buggy will fit on top. SHBKF

Not taking a thing from your kite trailer (it's mighty fine) but the car it is being towed by deserves some mention. It is super fine! Please do tell; enquiring minds want to know! :D




Kites:
Born-Kite LongStar-2 (3.5m, 5.5m, 7.5m, 9.5m, 12.5m);
Born-Kite NASA Star-3 (1.5m, 2.5m, 3.2m, 4.0m; z-bridled for handle flying)

Buggy:
Peter Lynn Bigfoot+ modified with VTT rail & seat kit (a seriously great performance upgrade), two sets of Sysmic rims (one set with BigFoot slicks for the "beach" of the Great Salt Lake and the other with 6-ply trailer tires for the Ivanpah playa), and BigKidKites AQR (because it keeps me in the bug and in my marriage)

Haha, my bike trailer is almost that big. I did put the buggy on top with the kites inside. Hardest part was getting the GL1800 on and off the beach without getting stuck. Be sure to carry a chunk of plywood to put under the kick stand.

Blue car on the left is a 1933 Plymouth PD tudor sedan. It is an original all steel body on it's original x-frame. The street rod was done in the mid-nineties. Drive train is a 1980 350 GMC truck block with a four barrel & Corvette rams horn exhaust manifolds. The engine is in a fairly mild state of tune but the car only weighs 2,800 pounds. Transmission is a R400 overdrive, same as is in our 87 Trans AM. Front suspension is from a Mustang II. No power steering on this one. Rear end is from a Ford Granada with 2.47 ratio for cruising at 70 mph at 1,500 rpm. It is what I call a junk yard street rod as most of it's parts are not custom. Interior is period correct blue tweed with a wooden dash board carrying a full set of instruments & an older stereo, soon to be updated. This car was made for traveling having a CB radio installed under the driver's seat. Wish I knew all it's history. The trailer is a custom one which converts into a picnic table. The seats fold out on the sides. There is a shelf on the hitch for a large cooler & has a mount for a nice umbrella. I run support for the other car in the picture, my wife's six digit 33 Ford. She has a bunch of trophies. Her interior is worth more than my car. SHBKF
