Loaded and ready to roll. Flush mount wheel chocks haven't come in yet so had to improvise with some 2x4's. Bikes will be facing forward once the wheel chocks are in.

Nice rig and set-up! We just ordered a Solera 24R and will be able to carry around ~500 lbs. of gear. Jealous that you can carry pretty much all you want! What a great way to spend time with your kids. Good luck!

I have a 30 wrs and thought it was long at 36'. You will turn today and the trailer tomorrow. Excellent trailers. I have had 3 and love them. Hope you have a lot of fun with your kids and the bikes. My kids are grown and now I have a grandson and a 2nd on the way. The W&P are great with kids and toys.

Were taking a 2 week vacay in late summer to tx and stopping picking up son, daughter inlaw and grandson at tinker airforce base in Oklahoma for a family riding trip. Many good times ahead.....

Awesome video!

So how did the truck handle the trailer? Still think you need a dually?

I wasn't able to pass a scale, but my rough calculations were GCWR was in the 25000# neighborhood. Again "rough calculations" were me taking my 1st weight ticket and adding to it. I know the weight of bikes and tools. I also towed with a full fresh water tank (didn't know where I could fill near track). I towed at 65-70 and had 1 moment where I thought a dually would have been better. Going down a 7% grade with sharp turns....was going 55 on this section. I feel confident I can tow it any where with this truck, and will.....until I find a dually that I like.

Cool video. I always thought Motocross was way too much work. You seem pretty good at it. Amazing how you can keep your head so still while racing!
