Default Suggestion on getting this home

I ordered the Globetrotter Tent and it is being shiiped to the FedEx Freight at Henderson where I have to pick it up. The tent, in box, measures 85” x 65” x 10”. The pallet it comes on should be a few inches in each direction larger than that. Could cut it off the Pallet.

The new mounting system is being shipped with it, so putting it on the AT Trailer really isnt an option.

I likely will rent a trailer, but thought I would see if there were other options or suggestions.

Too big to fit inside, without the pallet? I don't remember interior dimensions but that is how I got my Mombasa home when it arrived...I'm guessing yours is bigger than mine though...

Meant to mention this yesterday when we were chatting but I have a utility trailer you're welcome to borrow...I would just need a couple days notice to get it out (strapped to the back wall in the garage in front of the 40) and you'd probably need to hang on to it till I got back from Florida...

I think Rompies also has that small trailer that Daniel was giving away earlier in the year...

Thanks Everyone

Thinking Friday

Tim - what kind of connector does the trailer have? Your probably closest on the way up there.

I really appreciate it

Thanks

Ken

Regular 4 flat. I also have a 4-flat to 6- round adaptor. Because I built my truck with a 6-round (with plans of offroad trailer) and build the trailer 4-flat because it's the most common.

Ken, you can borrow our minivan. You might have to unbox your tent to get it in the van, but you were going to throw away the box anyway, right?

Thanks Matt, you think it would fit?

Timm, I assume the round 6 pin is the same as the 7 pin??

Man, Chices. First I had no clue, probably still don't, but I now have options for my problem.

Long day, got up at 3:30AM to catch the 6AM flt to DC. What a cattle car
