4 Season fun Toy Trailer, or not?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
My husband and I went shopping for a new bike trailer (8.5' by 16') for his summer passion, which is dirtbiking/racing.
I'm looking at this trailer, which is unfinished inside and thinking............
(scary when I think, huh?)
While we're setting this up for dirt bikes, why can't we put ski racks on one side, and a tuning bench.
Hey, we're going to have a generator and all the shelving in it for the motorcycle races, why not make it a 4 season use trailer.

Am I off my mark on this idea or can you come up with some ridiculous plans for me to implement?

it is about 300lb. 3'x4'x4'. Does have a feeder and I will include the phase converter so it will run on regular 220v at 2/3 power (which is fine). $750.00

Machine retailed for about $8,000.00 originally. Montana GM-U is the model. Currently it is in Rutland (area) VT.

Great idea! If your'e good with trailering in the snow (which can be a bit sketchy). A handy accessory for those is an RV awning for outside cover.

I'd be out shopping for some nice paisley wallpaper and area throw rugs.

Definitely need that solar awning and a beefy inverter for that.

Funny you should say that.......
We're getting it set up with an awning because that is something we both think is a must. Also, we're planning on setting this up with its own grill, sink, and cabinets, so it would be easy to have a little tailgate set up, and...........well, you get the idea

Yuki! I'd have never guessed you're a paisley kind of guy!

Actually we have checkered flag vinyl flooring ordered, which will be easy to clean, and I've picked up a remnant of Boat carpet that is mildew resistant to make an area rug for the area that won't see dirt bikes.
I have plans!!!

If you want to get real deluxe they make RV "toy hauler" trailers all set up with living quarters and a garage. I know someone who is a pro flattrack racer who travels all across the country competing with the 5th wheel version. They found some pretty neat plastic cabinets for the garage that they really like. I think they are made by Black and Decker.

I've seen plenty of those, and would love to have one if I liked RV'ing, but this is for day use only so doesn't warrant the extra $$$.

This is going to be one sweet set up when we're done...........if only I can convince my husband to work the ski stuff into the plan with his dirt bike stuff..........still have some work to do on him.

What about kitting it with the extras like in that Ski magazine article: beer on tap, heaters, laptop (so you can stay in touch with this Forum) - imagine a cold beer, in a camp chair, sat in front of the heater, giving us all up to date ski and snow condition reviews whilst your husband puts an exact tune on one of your many pairs of skis - awesome.

Boy have you got that all wrong!
Refreshment and luxury is great.
Allowing my husband to tune my skis is NOT going to happen!
I will, however, let him cook up some vittles. He be good at dat!
