How to haul a Powered Parachute
Since this is my page, I get to show off my solution first. I have a full size Chevy pickup and a 503 Eagle - single seat Buckeye. The Buckeye is wider than the truck bed, so it won't fit all the way in, but with the addition of a length of 2 by 12 treated lumber, the wheels fit nicely on the tailgate.
I added trailer lights to the board and plug them into my truck because the tires of the Buckeye cover my truck tail lights. Works great. The outer ramps are 2 by 10 treated lumber and the center ramp is 2 by 12 (left over from the tailgate piece).

Phil Murray created a metal version of a pickup truck hauling system for his Powered Parachute. This is a strong simple approach to giving support to the frame whch is wider than the truck. I think it's a neat approach.
