I know we have kicked around trailers before but bear with me.
I have an idea rattling around in my head. I am sure it is being done as I saw a 2 story trailer before.
My colonies are on, and will be on only on 4 way pallets.
I was thinking of a trailer that is 4 parallel rails, wide enough and long enough, to support 4 each 4 way pallets with a 2 foot wide board walk down the middle.
Pallets would be arranged lengthwise to keep the trailer as narrow as possible. There would be 3 each 16 inch wide walks at right angles to the central board walk between pallet 1 & 2, 2 & 3, and 3 & 4.
Bed length: 18.0 feet
Bed width: 7.5 feet
Over all lenth: 24 feet
2" ball coupler
Single 2000# axle - torsion
Keep in mind that they would be transported without supers so the weight to be hauled would likely not exceed 1600#.
When parked the bed ends would be supported by crank down RV jacks at all 4 corners.
How wonderful to hook on and follow the flow. Also easy to move to interupt SHB life cycle.
How spendy if you build it yourself (new steel)?
Any ideas and modifications??
Any software out there to design such a beast.
Closing in on retirement.......
