Congratulations on your acquisition. Are you close enough to Oshkosh to make the show? I trailer my conventional gear Europa in a 26 ft enclosed trailer. But I’m pretty sure this would not fit in a single car garage. Look to the folks in Europe that have open trailers and are designed for the Europa.

Greetings Everyone,

I am a proud new owner of a 2005 Europa Tri-Gear.
One of the features that drew me to this design was the ability to fold up onto a trailer, however my plane did not come with one Sad
(it was kept in a hangar its entire life)

I live in Canada, there are no Europa resources, trailer builders here as far as I know. That leaves only the option to design and build one myself.

Are there any designs, templates, cad drawings available for the Tri-Gear trailer? this would help a lot!
I'm hoping to retain the ability to fit into a single car garage.

Any and all Help would be greatly appreciated!

Tazmool

I agree with Mike, that it should be difficult to say the least to store a Trigear in a car garage on ist Trailer, especially an enclosed one.

My Trigear lives in an enclosed trailer from Anschau and I rig it single hand any time I go flying, which is a non-event.

If you are a member of the Europa Club, there is an article in a past issue of the Europa Flyer concerning a tri gear trailer which is open, not enclosed. There also are drawings of a custom enclosed trailer.

There is at least one tri gear owner I am aware of that stores his in an enclosed trailer. I will ask him to contact you.

I'm pretty certain other tri gear owners use commonly available trailers with a few modifications. Perhaps Bud Yerly will comment on trailers his customers use.

Where in Canada are you located? There may be Europa owners near you I can refer to you.

Thank you all for the warm welcome!

I am a Europa Club member (just joined), the previous owner did point out the article with the open trailer that fits into a single car garage (tri-gear) its an older article, I wish I could find the person who built that trailer and maybe get some drawings from them, as I think it would work perfectly!

The end-goal is the find some way to store my Europa in my garage, its just a 2 car garage, and to be able to bring the plane to-form the local airfield.

If possible, if the airplane could fit into the garage while on the trailer, that would be great. If it needs to come on-off every time, that is something I can live with.

A fully enclosed trailer for transportation and storage is not something I had considered (I have a small tow vehicle, 2000lbs tow rating) but maybe possible in the future?

I live in South Western Ontario, Canada. I know two Europa owners here, both keep their planes full time in a hangar, (I purchased my plane from one of them) and currently my Europa is in a hangar 1.5hrs away from me.

I'm still working on a few things on the Europa to get it into the air (including working on my own currency/recency with my PPL)

Unfortunately I don't think I can make Oshkosh this year, work schedule conflict.
