Well it’s the first Monday after Christmas, so I suppose it’s time to get back into the swing of things. I hope you all had a very Merry (and green) Christmas!

The Trimax Keyed Alike Universal Towing Kit

A while back I did a post on 4 Trimax Products That Will Help a Trailer Owner to Sleep at Night. I talked about 4 of our favorite products from Trimax that we carry. Today I would like to tell you about one more: The TCP50 Keyed Alike Universal Towing Kit. If someone close to you owns a trailer, camper, or boat trailer, and you’re still unsure of what you want to give them for Christmas, this product might be worth a look.

If you are still looking for more Christmas gift ideas, you might benefit from reading the Trimax post mentioned above as well as 5 Useful and Unique Gift Ideas For Men.

But anyways, back to this Towing Kit. Trimax put this kit together for you to get the most security for your trailer.81a-g8utWnL._SL1500_

This towing kit includes 3 different locks:

  • UMAX50– Used for when your trailer, boat or camper are not hooked up to your vehicle. It’s 1/2 turn technology stops it from being false locked and the corrosion resistant finish makes it long lasting and durable.
  • TC1– A coupler lock with an internal O-ring and water tight cap.
  • TS32– Used to lock and secure your vehicle trailer hitch. The hardened steel lock is Trimax’s most popular and trusted product.

The great thing about buying these locks together in this kit is the keyed alike feature. One key to fit all 3 locks means that you have the most security possible with no hassle or confusion. These locks are designed to fit all trailers and can be useful for so many people.

Is there anyone in your life that could benefit from Keyed Alike Universal Towing Kit?

A Labor of Love: Part 3

Mustang Restoration Part 3: Media Blasting

But first, have you read Part 1 and Part 2?

We left off in 2005 when Dave took apart the Mustang. A whopping 5 years later he picked up where he left off. It was April of 2010 when he continued his work on the car.

He brought it into be sand blasted, having no idea what shape the car would be in when he got it back. He didn’t know if he would have to deal with a bunch of hidden rust holes before continuing. When he got the car back, he was very pleasantly surprised! The car was in remarkable shape, especially after it’s decades of sitting in storage.

He did find there was some rust on the corners of the doors, fenders and quarter panels. The floor boards needed to be replaced because of several pin holes, but that was the extent of the damage.

When he got the car back, he borrowed a car rotisserie from a buddy of his. He was able to place the car on the rotisserie and turn the whole car over with just one hand. This made it much easier to continue his work. What an awesome invention!

While the car was on the rotisserie, he was able to do all the sheet metal and body work, which we will bring to you next month in Part 4. Stay tuned!

How to Load an Inline Snowmobile Trailer

If you have been keeping up with us at all, then you probably know we have a whole stockpile of snowmobile trailers for sale on our lot. We are loving all the trailers we got from NEO and I wanted to share a bit more with you about the inlines that we have. Specifically, how to load them.

But first, here are some of the major advantages of purchasing a 7′ wide trailer vs. a 8.5′ wide trailer.

  • Inline trailers are built more narrow with a lower overall height, resulting in easier towing and less wind resistance.
  • The deck does not sit over the tires so they have a lower loading ramp angle.
  • Because snowmobiles are loaded in a staggering fashion, you are able to carry more sleds in less square footage.

When you’re heading up north or out west with the guys for a snowmobile trip, it’s nice to have a trailer that can comfortably fit all your sleds. And having an easy trailer to pull is great for your peace of mind and your wallet. There have been a lot of questions as to how to load these trailers though. A common myth is that sleds are loaded in a diagonal manor. This is not true, and we are here to tell you how it’s properly done. 

1. The Front Spring Assist Ramp Doorshowimagerv (4)

This is the door that you will use to load your snowmobiles. (Notice that super low ramp angle!) This is the curbside of the trailer. Simply bring your sled in and place it all the way in the back on the roadside of the trailer with the front skis touching the back ramp door.

2. Start The Stagger

Sled number two will go in front first as well, but on the curbside of the trailer. The front of its skis should be just touching the back of the first sled’s skis.

3. Fill It Up

Keep going with staggering sleds and switching sides. Depending on the size of your snowmobiles, these trailers can hold 3, 4 or 5 sleds. Here is what a loaded inline trailer will look like.

4. Drive Out

One of the best things about these trailers is the “Drive in, Drive out” feature. It makes it so easy to load and unload when you don’t need to back up the snowmobiles. And if you want to make your trailer even more awesome, you can deck yours out in some of our accessories from Caliber. (Accessories that, by the way, will make incredible Christmas gifts for someone who already has a snowmobile trailer.)


Hopefully those pictures clear up any confusion on how to load these trailers. We are stocking NEO inlines and we also have NEO deck-overs available to order. Once again, here is our full listing of snowmobile trailers for sale, including some from Sport Haven too.

Is anyone planning a snowmobile trip before Christmas or in January? Don’t forget to check your tires to avoid problems on the road. Take a moment to read Ten Tactical Tips for Trailer Tires in Grand Rapids.
