Does anyone have experience with trailering a trike into Burningman? I feel like I've seen trailers out in the ultralight area in past years, but not sure how they pulled it off.

      Jake McGuire I'm pretty sure they just pull in, drive over to the airport, and get let out of the gate to the parking area. You can ask tom spiers - he did it two years ago. Are you coming this year?

      Chuck Burgoon Many of the snowmobile salvage yards up north have this stuff. They just don't want to hear it's going on an aircraft. I've had them say "this is not going on an aircraft...right?" wink wink.

      Chuck Burgoon This made a believer out of me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hsls5ZPCUnE I would make a taller screen for it. Lexan will bend down for set up, or have a two piece for set up. The original is almost useless and is based on the two piece nose strut. I replaced mine with a one piece.

      Dave Tranquilla Thanks guys, I pulled the trigger on the Datum's. I really need a retract wheel ski for the flying I'm doing and these seem to fit the bill. I will give a report once the snow flys!
