more rationalising $$$

Just picked up another need to have accessory.

24' of fun capacity with AC and awning. Bringing her home I was very happy that my brother and I both have F350 crew cab long wheel base power strokes for pulling this thing. It towed very nice even in the wind..
BTW That is his truck pictured.

Man Dave!!!

SWEEEEEEETTTT!!

that is about what I am looking for. How much did it set you back and is it new or used?

I was out looking at a 24' Haulmark today over in Streamwood.

Nice trailer!!

My brother and I were shopping for a while and had seriously thought about about getting a big toy hauler. Finding ones with large garages and car weight/size capacity adds up $$$$$$. This one is plan B rev 2. Plan B being a car hauler, rev2 being used. This one is a year old, used by a Kart racer girl. She traded up to a larger one and we got a decent deal, right around 7k. This one has, aluminum floor, cabinets,110 power and lighting, AC and awning and so on. It cost us about what a empty new base model would have. When we were looking at new ones, some of the add-ons are fairly priced and some make your head spin.

Next is adding a bunch of E-track and cycle stand things. Later we are investigating heat and windows. The big screen and hot tub are on hold.

I will also say again. It is good to have big truck to pull this thing. I would not want to pull this one fully loaded with a gasser.

The power stroke diesel was stroking coming home into the wind.

Great deal, I would've bought it as well. If you hear of any more deals like that... gimme a ring!

Nice trailer, we'll see you at the track with it. I am looking for something similar to yours 24-32'.

Congrats again.

This one looks very familiar. It does not have all the stuff that ours has but I think you could add it later and still come in for less $

That it will. It will also haul on occasion 3-4 street bikes, a bunch of quads and assorted camping/cooking gear and of course tools and spares for the Aprilia and my brothers SV. Or maybe my 911 if I ever get my S together to run the silver state. And probably more odd stuff depending on the mission.

It is taking the K's to LasVegas for some west coast spring riding in a few weeks.

Mr Grouch. I had to check the spec sheet. It looks like 3600 and 9500 are the numbers.

We are not really sure how it's going to load out for Nesba track days but I expect we will have some space to spare.

Wow! The 911 will fit in there? That's awesome.
LIke Mopar, I'm jealous! I'm now half-tempted to trade the G35 for a Nissan Titan so I can come to the track well-equipped and in style instead of in a cheapo Uhaul rental trailers.

That G35 is a very, very nice car. I used to have a nice old truck for hauling and towing and a decent get-around car. I finally gave up and went with a really nice truck that does it all for me. The versatility of a crew cab or extended cab pickup is hard to beat.
I am more a truck kind of guy anyway.

thanks for the kudos to everyone, it's good that my bother and I can split up these expenses or there is no way I could do it or justify it myself.


Tow vehicles would probably be a worthwhile stand alone topic too.

Thanks! It works well enough. I think I'd like to get a trailer like the guy at Autobahn with the Audi TT had. I wouldn't be able to bring the grill, though. But you'll have some extra space, right??

My brother is the grill master. I would guess we will have some sort of overkill on the grilling equipment also. I am thinking some sorts of arrangement can be made. This should be a very enjoyable summer around our pit for friends and family.

That was Hernan. He doesn't post on here, but you can find him on the NESBA Midwest forum. Great guy!

Couldn't remember his name but I talked to him a bit at one the NESBA dates, about the trailer actually. It seems that the Baxley trailers are tough to come by around here. He had the same leathers as me.

Ran on a Black SV650 with Neon Orange wheels in the front of the "I" group. I had a blast riding with him. Super nice guy and a cool simple trailer.

Trailer info can be found at http://www.baxleycompanies.com/ST001ST002.html

Yep, thats the one. I've checked ebay and the local trailer places, no one has 'em. I was really impressed with it when I saw his.
