Motor Home Trailer Carries Car, Boat
Here's good news for every camper-fisherman who's been looking for a way to tote a car and boat behind a motor home.
It can be done. Wayne Hauptli, Glencoe, Minn., demonstrated how at the recent 1987 Minnesota Inventor's Congress.
"One person working alone can load and unload it," says Hauptli of the unique combination car-boat trailer he invented. First, a two-way power winch loads the boat, positioning it high in the air (11-ft. off the ground). A compact car is then driven onto the bed which tilts to form its own drive-on ramp, then drops back to horizontal when the car has driven all the way forward on the tilting bed.
"The car and boat balance each other, making it easy to tow the loaded trailer down the road behind our motor home," Hauptli told FARM SHOW. "You could haul a car without the boat, but it wouldn't work to haul a boat only in the upper level without having a car below it to help balance the load," he points out.
Hauptli would like to hear from persons interested in possibly buying one of his car-boat trailers, and from manufacturers interested in building and marketing them commercially.
