A much needed detail
« on: August 29, 2022, 10:36:02 PM »
I have only one photo but I spent 3 hours on the interior today.    It was much needed. 


Process

Vac and pull weather-tech liners out/Vac again
APC those with brush and light water
Plain water on door jams and seals
Plain water with MF on dash and panels
Opt APC 4:1 on cup holders and pulled out all cup liners and dash liner
Used new brushes to clean up dash, buttons, cup holders and all things center console
Re organized center console with the fancy dividers

Poor Boys Leather stuff on all seats and anything leather type.

Will grab some more photos but this was a much needed cleaning.   My truck has been my bike shop for 2 years, with bike gear in the back seat pretty much 24/7.   Stuff started to smell and get nasty, it needed a good deep clean.

Next part (tomorrow) is re organizing my gear that I use on every ride and keep handy in the truck.

Looks awesome! You must just love backing that narrow / short trailer up.  :funny:

Tom, it is very tricky, you can't see it in the camera b/c of the bikes so i have resorted to opening the door and leaning out to back in down the driveway.   The fun part is the dual GenY (10k lbs rated) multi hitch. That makes it possible for me to tow a small trailer like this AND have my bike rack on there with bikes. It looks pretty cool when rolling down the road.

We tested it to see how far I could turn going forward, i still have 6-10 inches of clearance when turning max left or right.   Backing is more tricky b.c you can jackknife the trailer and the rack can and will hit the trailer and since its not mine, I wanted to be sure to take very good care of it while I am using it so we can use it again.  I have been trying to find this trailer from HaulMark for 5 months, they don't make it anymore.  UGH,   it is perfect for what we need it for this weekend.

Remember, I work at a marina, and we move short / narrow jet ski trailers all the time. They're a pain in the butt! I'll take a long trailer any day of the week.

I need to know, what’s in the trailer? Is it a giant beer cooler?

So is this really the vehicle behind the post about your daughters vehicle and you just didn’t want to admit it was your truck?

Looks good though!

Just add a bike safety flag to one rear corner of the trailer and use that to help you back up.

LOL, Ryan, yes there will be a yeti cooler in the cargo trailer but it will have all our bags in it as the bed of my truck is my rolling bike shop, plus grill, grill stand, stove and bike stand.    The cargo trailer will have all luggage for the weekend plus riding gear for my son and I.  all the things needed for both CC and Gravity rides.  Taking 3 bikes with us so there is a lot of gear.


I will post photos if you all are really that interested.

Mike, not sure I follow this one. Can you add some context?

Good idea Doug, but its not mine....however I found the new version of this trailer from SunDowner Trailers, I know you know them, mostly horse and workplay trailers.

Going to order a version of these:

I like the black one with the roof rack.

You just made a post about an interior detail of your kids car and needing help finding a product. We never did see pictures of that car and how bad it was and the turn around but then your truck gets an interior detail.  Seems fishy.  Haha.

It looked a little small, so I was curious on it’s use. I would think you would be better to hunt down a small 5x8 trailer or something,  then you could have everything bike related in there and just hook up and head out.

Ah, that makes sense and yes that does seem very fishy.
