    Single axle hybrid trailers reviews

    All I can offer is second hand information, but a number of my friends have moved to the TC-167 and similar trailers. The narrower trailers seem to tow easier as they tuck into the truck's windstream. The added advantage is that the visibility down the side of a 7 foot trailer is much better that the 101" wide. Loading seems to be very easy as well, as the sleds are driven straight in but park in a staggered configuration. I am sure that irREVerent, Nunz, and many others could weigh in with more first hand experiences.
  2. But the cube van probably was already over the 4500 Kg. I believe if you tow a trailer with a vehicle of lesser weight that is yellow stickered, then the combined weight comes into play. If the GVWR of a vehicle is 3000 Kg, then as long as the combined weight is under 4500 Kg then the trailer does not need a sticker, even if the truck has one. I think that is the point mike37 was trying to make. Part of the confusion is when do you use actual weight (if running empty) or the GVWR of the trailer.
  3. I agree. The only 'nice' thing I see about the yellow sticker is that it serves as a reminder to get it done annually. If this comes in, I guess I'll have to start doing it on my birthday, just to make that part of the year even more expensive (vehicle registrations, gov't ID's)

    Thank You Tatachikapika Lodge

    Tata Welcome to the forum. We had a very comfortable stay with you in February. We will be back! Have a great summer season.
  5. Sure it is. But that doesn't mean that buyers and potential buyers shouldn't speak up about something that concerns them with an approximate $20K purchase. One trip meter seems like a huge step backwards. My current sled has a total of four trip meters, although two of them are 'hardware specific'. By hardware specific, I am referring to the Oil Change odometer, which displays only after the oil change interval has been exceeded, and the Fuel odometer, which counts the distance traveled with the fuel light on. All four of these are very useful and I would certainly miss them.

    Your last ride this April

    My son and I rode the full first week of April, a good part of it with 79cat. This was a fantastic end to my rocky season and a great chance to spend time with my son. We put on 1500 Km and rode to Kap and Moonbeam, the Canyon, and a trip over towards Iroquois Falls. The part of the last day was like riding in mashed potatoes (thanks Revrnd for that term) but it was still great. Thanks to all of the clubs for their efforts and late season grooming. No Pics, sorry
  7. Excellent resource. Thanks for the effort.

    Beer cans on trails

    Oh. Please don't!

    Beer cans on trails

    I agree with both of you. My feeling is that things can happen too fast on the trails with unwanted results, without anything to dampen reaction time. I might be a 'lightweight' when it comes to drinking, but I feel that any impairment is too much on the trails, or roads for that matter. My feeling is that someone drinking on the trails does not only affect them, it also affects me. Either by jeopardizing my safety, or, God forbid, by ruining my trip by having to deal with the consequences after the fact. JMO.

    Mileage this season, so far...

    6792 Km this year. Not a great year for me. Main shock in the skid broke early in the season and replacements have been tough to get and tune.

    Cochrane Update..

    Moosifer and I just came back from a week in Cochrane. Trails were awesome for the most part. Saturday had warmed up and they were a little (OK, a lot) like riding mashed potatoes. Tuesday, we were expecting others to arrive, but unfortunately a couple were not able to make it. However, while sitting in the room, a Jeep pulls up outside our room, and the driver rolls down the window and gives us the finger! Turned out he was one of the people that joined us in Quebec with Nunz and recognized my sled We rode to Kap on Wednesday and introduced some friends to Beardmore and Nursery Loop (sorry locals ) Got to ride with 79Cat again. Great week (1530 Km) and end of the season.

    OFSC Trail Guide

    Actually, if you zoom in on Google maps, it shows Whitney as Airy. The old IAFG used Google maps as the base and now they have changed to OpenStreetMaps as a base.

    Mileage this season, so far...

    Finished off at 6792. Not bad considering my slow start. Finished off with a great week of riding with my son in Cochrane where we added another 1530 Km.

    New liskeard up through hearst

    We rode there last week and it seemed like they stopped grooming. Driving by Sunday AM, we could see the moguls on the trail from the truck. Continue to Cochrane! Trails are still excellent here. Did the Canyon yesterday and rode to Kap area the day before.
