Excellent. Thanks, Neville. Do you have any up close photos of your tail dolly?

Richard- first off, great looking Kitfox.

Second- that was probably the best video I've seen yet on how to safely load, transport and unload a Kitfox. Love that dolly you have and the remote control winch is sweet.
Every step was spot on. Also the converted boat trailer is so much healthier for a Kitfox with its lighter springs. Thanks so much for posting.

P.S. - I made this a "sticky" so folks can find it when searching for the correct way to trailer their Kitfox.

Thank you Neville. Looks like you've been busy splitting and stacking firewood, too.

Steve, here are two more pics which show the telescoping of the cradle shaft. As the cradle cannot be disconnected from the A/C until the wings are unfolded, the cradle must follow the fuselage. Hence the telescoping. Otherwise the entire dolly would be lifted as the tail rises.

Note the removable triangle and scissor jack at front of trailer to lower tail so it can fit in the garage. Now i may have to to do slight mods because John has me talked into 8.50 tires.
