Very interesting, my wife says see you really don’t need your Roadtrek, you can just make one of these. While I think this would be an awesome project, I’m concerned about high crosswinds as I’ve hauled rv gliders upright on a trailer and believe me strong crosswinds are a handful. I can see this working better on designated rails to trails where the grade is very minimal. Fun stuff.
