Get Permanent Trailer #40
With a trailer rental approach, a single launch requires that we load or unload all equipment 6 times.
For a gear-heavy group, this is A LOT of work. If we had a permanent trailer, we would only ever unload the gear in the field, and re-load the gear. Then we'd park the trailer until the next launch. This removes 66% of the physical labor involved in a launch, and avoids trailer rental logistics.
PSU supposedly has space to store such a trailer, in the basement of one of the buildings. If this is actually true, and we could get permission/approval it would make this feasible, as well as make it easier for students to access tower parts.

Towing Capacity Charts
The tower is the longest length item that would need to go in the trailer. It is 10ft long, and barely fits into a 10ft trailer. If the tower is rebuilt with a lite weight tower, we can use 8ft or 5ft sections, thus a 10ft long trailer would easily handle the tower sections.
