Caravan to Ridesmart

We have an expedition to pull a trailor. We dont have that 8 bike trailer to pull all of the bikes in the group were caravaning in.

Linjy2 says he has a 4runner or truck we can PROBALY use. That means we can get two 4 bike trailers (or a size to accomodate).

Renting that huge truck from uhual would be too expensive, IMO.


we might be leaving houston (SW houston area) around 3-4 PM depending on the time it takes to load our stuff up.

Re: Caravan to Ridesmart

the HUGE truck by friday morning is what the guy at uhaul said. only becasue they get swamped.

anytime we want for the trailer, but the sooner the better. there are alot of uhuals here in houston so we just have to call them up if they ALL are being used in one spot.

also, were pulling them so we get momentum and not that much energy is spent after we get going just when we take off with a burnout.


BUT lets continue this convesation itn the Caravn thread right:

Re: Caravan to Ridesmart

a wheel chock will ensure NO tipping of the bike, if the front wheel isnt secure, then it could fall over... a wheel chock is cheaper than new plastics for you and the next bike over that it hits when it falls..

Re: Caravan to Ridesmart

as for the weather.... it's completely unpredictable! That piece of is never on. I dotn remember the last time it actually said sunny day. Just about everytime I have gone it says scattered T-storms and maybe it rains a little bit if at all and the rest its a great day! We'll just have to wait and see when the day comes. right:

Re: Caravan to Ridesmart

thats fine with me. We can use a few 4x6 pieces of wood, so the front tire has something to clamp against. patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited showed me how to do it.

Im ready to go, looking forward to this.

Artura just confirming... this means our trailer's booking is confirmed right? Beacuse i need to cancel my reservation if it is.
