V nose for sure gives you 18" to 24" depending on manuf.

I'm going to think positive. Don't really want to have to buy a new custom trailer to fit in my garage that will hold her.

We'll see once it is all done the prop to Vertical measurement and see if it will work.

I love the Biela 26X12 on my 100cc Edge and thought that is what you were running on the 100cc.

Any thoughts on 33X12 vs the 30X13 or even the Biela 30X14?

I have never tried a Biela, 33X12, 30X13 or the 30X14, so I would not be a good source of information on these items, but I would like to hear from those who have used them.

Just a hint, but I was looking at trailers awhile back, and if you dont mind driving to Georgia....you can buy factory direct and save BIG $$$. I was about to pull the trigger on a 28' with just a few options for $4500.00. nothing super fancy, just light ply on the inside, but for me its comes natural to finish it out with eminities. 16-20 footers for $2500-4000 all day long. just google factory direct trailers....

Good info Mike. They also make a ton of trailers in Elkhart , Indiana and you can get some really good deals if you're willing to drive there and pick one up. I just don't think there is any way that a 10' trailer will suffice to carry this plane.

Do you mind ALOT of people around for the maiden? I live close enough to make a day trip out of it. maybe even do some flying (with my traditional heavy planes). Maybe I could just bring out the camera's?

I just ordered a 33X12 so I'll bring it down next time you're flying and we can test it out.

Awesome thanks. The challenge is I have to be able to fit it in my garage so it has to be built low. Silly HOA rules. I found some good deals on a 12ft. V nose custom built, I just don't want to have to switch trailers if I don't have to I love my current set up. I'll check your sources too thanks.

Craven,
I don't think it will fit but as I said will remain optimistic about it. Time will tell. I'll check into Indiana as well. I know Waymatic is there and have purchased some trailers from them in the past for a previous business. Thanks for the feedback!
