Every time I see pics of your trailer, I'm in full lust-mode. Great setup and looks very functional.

I agree 100%.

Tapatio, I think you read the thread backwards.

Ah yes, there's a fine line between towing and being towed and I found out the hard way.

Re: Pics of what you tow with your Sportsmobile

Those are so awesome setups!

We have this 1999 Ski Nautique. But unlike scottman that only has a 1.5 mile tow to the lake . We have a 250 mile tow through the desert to the Colorado River. Sometimes it can be 110 degrees through most of that run. The bikes only go with us in the winter.



Cheers,
John

I needed a solid steel hitch extension bar so the electronic power assist tongue jack doesn't whack the Aluminess box on turns. I also use an Equal-I-Zer weight distribution/anti-sway system. Helps level the van and prevents side to side swaying of the trailer.

Here's my fun car that I used to tow to participate in Time Attack and private track days.


Carson enclosed 20' tandem axle trailer. It's for sale as well.

Re: Pics of what you tow with your Sportsmobile

^^^ id love to hear specs and see more pix of that 34

when you put that trailer up for sale i saw the hood and front bumper in there and wanted to guess, but it was too hard to tell with all the vents n'stuff. i assumed evo, my appologies

when i worked at a speedshop i got to play with quite a few cars not available here, but never a r34. one of my favs was a stagea that we swapped a rb26dett into. big ole fastass wagon, was really cool.

Awesome! Didn't expect to find jdm enthusiast on a smb forum.

I would love a rb26 stagea as a grocery getter.
