Yes, I know. But I'm sick of making trips to Ohio. It costs over $1,000 each time, and I normally go one to four times a month. My wife is tired of me being gone too, as it is hard on her.It almost seems comparable money-wise to just flying off the 40(?) hours in Ohio then flying it home. Possibly safer too.
Which type aircraft are you moving? A Mustang replica? If so the width is likely an issue. To get around it a cradle or some sort of cribbing should be built to tilt the airframe so that the overall width going down the road is reduced. Just a rough guess but I think 30-35 inches should do it.The deck needs to be at least 108" wide. With the ability to have full rolling access the length of the deck. The fenders can't impinge on the deck space.
Or, a lift of some sort to get the fuselage and center section with landing gear up in the air, and back the trailer under neath.
Well, assuming you're a good guy and not going to destroy it, you are welcome to borrow my open trailer, it's less than 5 months old and just made a trip to CA and back without issue. I'm heading to Oshkosh this week and could drop it off in Ohio on the way up, or you're welcome to come get it at a convenient time from here in TN and return it. Depending on timeline, I could pick it up and transport it to Texas after Oshkosh, assuming there would be help loading it.Yes, a T-51 Mustang. It's a legal width, and many have trailered them x-country with no issues, mostly with car haulers.
That's exactly what I was thinking, except writhe the wings under the plane attached to the cradle to prevent damageYou might think about building a cradle like this:
