    Hi Paul.

    I've seen a bunch of different approaches to carrying wings in trailers. Some guys build a box and transport them that way, others use racks on the wall and bungee them into the rack.
    I use a slide rack which acts like a file cabinet. Wings are stored on the LE.
    I will also try to get some pictures and post them.

    The thread on small trailers, page 3, has my method of madness. I think I have the link attached to this post, but maybe not. My methods are pretty Rube Goldberg-ish, but they have worked well so far. The wing storage is basically, a separate compartment with the wings stored on their leading edges. Many people are concerned with the things moving aft in a trailer, but all I've ever found is they like to move forward. The braking forces are more prevalent than the acceleration! Hope it helps or spawns some ideas. Let us know what you come up with, it is always great to see others solutions.

    I've been debating on how to haul my airplanes without relying on my Dad's Suburban for a while now. I think I've settled on getting a trailer that I can haul
