Default RE: Planes transportation

A van can haul a LOT of plane - I also like the pvc and insulation. This is my latest, and about the only thing I did different on this one was not to glue ANY of the joints. Instead, after I got it all cut and fit it together how I wanted, I took my dremel and a 1/16th bit and drilled each fitting and installed a servo screw. This has allowed me to make a couple of modifications without having to hack it apart with a saw blade. This one fits onto the top of the rear arm rests of a Chrysler Town and Country. I have one set of legs that fits in the bottom middle for support and tie it down with one bungy strap into the lock down bars for the seats. I guess if you look close at the pics comparing the ones in the van (with no plane) and the one on the bench, you might notice the one on the bench now has one more fuselage holder. I can carry 3 - 40 to 60 size fuselages on the rack to the right, and up to 4 wings to the left. The longest wing I fit in on the bottom rack measures 73.5". I've had up to 3 - 60 and 2 - 120 in here, no damage, held securely, and all of the radio and field equipment needed for a fly in. The chairs, suitcase, and shade just all go up on the roof

Don't mind the fuel stains on the floor, I sponge it out once a year and it's ready to go again. And Yes, You Can Assume the Wife Drives the New Jeep
