|How to make a cheap PPC trailer
If you're not lucky enough to have a large pasture or lawn to use as an airstrip, you'll need a way to get your PPC from here to there. The trailer I use was built for about $250.00 complete, and does the job well. Note that the measurements below are for the Six Chuter SR7. Other models will require adjustments.

The trailer starts with one of those ubiquitous $199.00 discount store trailers. I bought this one at Fred Meyer in Oregon, and understand that many other stores sell them. You'll find them advertised as "4 X 8 folding utility trailer"
The trailer is a bolt together kit that comes complete with lights. You have to supply the 3/4 inch plywood bed yourself. Gross weight is 990 lb., plenty for a PPC and accessories.
By adding a structure built of 3/4 inch thin wall conduit,
this trailer will support a PPC securely. Click this image to get a larger
photo with measurements. The ramps are two pieces of conduit screwed to
a piece of 3/8 inch plywood.
