    10' Toy Carrier

    I bought my Toy Carrier new in 2006. I have made some wiring mods and changed the floor slides to a low profile type from Princess Auto in order to lower the windshield hitting the slope with my new XF7000. This trailer is one of the better ones for a rider forward sled since the slope is fairly steep. My XF7000 is 125" long overall. This should help with fitting the touring sled. My sled back bumper is almost touching the back door. I don't have any pictures with the XF in the trailer but here are some with my 121" T-Cat and my old 136" Wildcat Touring. If the back reset will pivot forward, then there my be less interference with the hatch. Check the trailer out carefully for broken weds in the axle brackets and missing insulators between the axle brackets and the aluminum frame. This will eat the frame rails through.

    I would suggest going to Royal's tent sale before the Show in September, Also might want to check out Fortnine website as well, We also went to Novi Michigan sled show a couple of years ago and found some really good deals, Hope this helps.
  9. When and where is the best place and time to pick up a new suit? Is the Toronto sled show at the Royal Booth the place to go? Or are there other annual sales I should be waiting / watching for?

    10' Toy Carrier

    Thanks for the suggestion. This is a great idea. Although I agree a little crude it would serve the purpose. Not something I'd want on my rig that makes numerous trips across Ontario and Quebec each winter, but this is for my father in law who is just getting back into the sport. He's looking for a used enclosed trailer and spending $1500 will be a stretch. He's only going to ride from the cottage an hour from home a cpl weekends a year. I figured these older toy carriers are a cheap option that still get him into an enclosed trailer instead of an open trailer. Will the backrest on the grand touring fit ok as well in the toy carrier height wise?

    Barrie to Collingwood ?

    Tread carefully. Seems every time I turn around, some tree hugging idiot wants a trail closed down so nobody ever uses it. It's almost an automatic win. Go ahead, and check out a "non motorised trail only" trail over 100 yards from the parking lot. I for one hate having tax dollars go to a single use trail that nobody ever uses.

    $2500 a kilometer for a government for annual maintenance....

    Barrie to Collingwood ?

    This would be a lifeline for sledding in the area as anything south of barrie is now a dead zone due to developers buying up farm fields and closing trails. It would be nice to be able to head into barrie for a gas/food stop while avoiding lake simcoe.

    Barrie to Collingwood ?

    If the local clubs are going to get involved in this opportunity, I would suggest they contact the BEAST and West Carleton clubs. Both these clubs have been involved with the development of the Ottawa Valley Rail Trail from Smith Falls to Mattawa. The clubs were successful in maintaining motorized use despite significant opposition from a very vocal non-motorized contingent. They worked closely with a number of municipalities to over come significant obstacles. Securing long term access to these corridors is going to be critical to maintaining connectivity between regions. hope this works out.

    Barrie to Collingwood ?

    Removing the tracks and leaving the rail ties in to fill or pave over??? People writing this report haven't thought that out much. Each tie will heave individually with the frost making a mess of the trail surface. Also $2500 a km for maintenance annually. That's ridiculous. If the snowmobile club wants to use this trail they better get involved and sort this out. Looks like the staff at the city needs some lessons on multi use trails. The club should be able to sell council on major cost reductions if the club is involved. They should hit it with screenings 12" thick and use the Peterborough Lang Hastings trail as an example of how this can be dealt with for much less in the long term. Snowmobile trail in the winter and non motorised in the summer.

    I like the sounds of it for a new corridor for sledding..

    Barrie to Collingwood ?

    Didn't mention anything about consultations with First Nations people in the area - not good. After the 'discussion' about the Champlain statue and the cannons pointed the 'wrong' way, you would think this would be standard practice just to possibly avoid any unpleasantness.

    For your very first OFSC annual meeting initiation you will be led to a room with a goat. Be brave.

    It is a more than reasonable price for consistently awesome trails. I’ll be back in Quebec again this year.
