Camper trailer boat loader plans,small wooden row boat plans,boat propellers for sale in louisiana,professional boatbuilder #130 - Step 3

Since it’s lightweight, it can be towed by just about any vehicle including 4 cylinder cars. Wouldn’t it be great to get to travel the country with something like this to take with you? No need to spend lots of money on gasoline, heavy campers, and pricey toys when you can tow something as compact and useful as this. The manufacturer is called American Dream Trailer and the paddle boat seamlessly fits atop the camper. You might be happy to hear that it’s currently for sale and listed over at Tiny House Listings for $5,800. Can this be seen on the East Coast and can these be purchased at all or are they custom made only?
The straps are kind of interesting since they come with 3 thick rubber pads that curve up and around the tire. The four tie down points makes sense - I've got a tripod now - but ONLY when towing over the road: the 2 wheels and the hitch post which is held in place with a pretty stout pin - similar to what you would use to mount a hitch in a receiver, but not nearly as strong.
When I'm towing on the road I WANT the Chalet BODY to float on the tritoon deck and be on the springs to absorb shock instead of tied down tight.
There's very little pressure on the jacks, but it really does make it rock solid since the weight on the leaf springs is lessened and partially re-distributed to the far corners of the trailer - and farther out on the deck - vs. I'm certainly no engineer either, but as a commercial pilot I have learned a few things about weight and balance over the years. Those flanges were not designed to carry a heavy load where the forces are so concentrated on a small area.
The fact that you have a tri is irrelevant to these issues, it's not an issue of boyancy, but structural integrety.
I have seen a faily new pontoon sitting on the hard on the side of a hill with its starboard side on the high side of the hill, it sat there for a few days, not even a week.
Production pontoon boats are not designed to put cars, campers or other heavy items on them. In your case, you also have used those plates under the wheels which really helps in the issue mentioned, your area being compressed by the weight looks to be four or five times greater than if it were simply sitting on the plywood.


I point this out to try to keep some fool from putting a trailer on a stock pontoon or tri and getting into some chop on a large lake, without taking precautions as you have with those plates.
The flanges should be reinforced in my opinion (and as I was told) by adding angle stock along the welds of the flange and tubes across a longer surface, like running angle the length of the tube over the flanges welding the flange tothe stock and the stock to the tubes. I think you have a nice rig there, and it does not appear to be an old boat, I just suggest you keep a close eye on the condition of the commections and deck and stay out of rough waters. Location: Tucson, AZ So, you are sitting there, typing away and proclaiming this unsafe? I appreciate your views, but I have NOT exceded the maximum allowed gross weight as established by the manufacturer.
You have to assume that 15 people - yup, that's what the Party Hut I salvaged was certified for initially - could all stand on one point on the deck without causing a catastrophic failure of the substructure.
I think you feel that pontoons are very fragile, but the combination of an engineered lattice and structural skin (the deck) create a much stronger structure than you could ever imagine.
This boat is and never will be adequate for any kind of rough water, but it handled one foot chop and whitecaps (with wind gusting to about 30 mph) quite well. One of the things I'd propose it for is 'land lubber' applications like RV or office or even workshop, medical etc trailers or vehicles. Yeah, I'd want to be able to just drive on a full size van ambulance rather than try to create a ambulance-boat. At a 40' size format, with beam to match, I'm thinking a 30-40 RV trailer along with a 40' CONEX box or office trailer, or 18 wheeler trailer.

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. He has a passion for exploring and sharing tiny homes (from yurts and RVs to tiny cabins and cottages) and inspiring simple living stories.


This is how we strapped down trucks crossing the Atlantic, and goes a long way in making sure the cars don't move around when rocking.
The flawless Meranti plywood floor connects everything together so it is acting only in tension, it is not weight bearing at all.
The flanges of your center tube are welded to the beams and while it will add rigidity to the beam in the water, it does nothing for the compression on the deck. When the guy came to pick it up, the weight of the boat at that angle had caused the flanges to tear from the low side tubes and it collapsed under its own weight. It will make all the difference in the world and one would be hard pressed to realize it wasn't a typical pontoon house boat setup.
They provide spray protection to keep the deck dry as well as provide some aesthetic continuity to the design. They provided a great place to mount the BMW badges - from the "manufacturer" - of course! We invite you to send in your story and tiny home photos too so we can re-share and inspire others towards a simple life too. Each time your boat rocks it changes the center of gravity and the distribution of weight and forces working on those 4" aluminum flanges.
I have had this discussion with several in the industry at different times and the company engineers will tell you the same thing, they are not designed originally to carry such weights.

You could add strong hooks at each end of th roof for a small hammock,so three people, or a couple with a child could use it.
Don't know what you fly, but you can feel the difference in a C-130 with a heavy load and it's much the same as banking when the center of gravity chnages and the weight is not all on the skids.
Do not wire money in any way without first seeing the home (or other product), checking title, and doing your proper due diligence.
