After my first taste of track days in 2017, I knew I would spend time and money in the off season to upgrade as much as I could for 2018. Last year I did a video called Trailer Prep where I talked about basics needed to go to the track.

This year, we upgraded to a brand new 2018 Pro Series trailer, moving from a 12ft to a 16ft VNose. We also went from 7ft wide 8.5ft wide, and I quickly realized I needed to upgrade my mirror system to get a bigger and wider view. The trailer also had a couple of visual features I was wanting - minimal external screws and an interior with finished walls and ceiling. It also happened to have some other nice upgrades like a lot of diamond plate instead of plain polished, an RV door. Like with my cars, stock wheels had to go so I got some that match my tow rig better. After getting all of these upgrades I determined that I better upgrade my security, so I basically got every kind of locking mechanism I could find to get everything as secure as possible.
I did some custom art to match my R1, so had some decals made up and ordered some striping. This is the largest decal project I've ever installed and I quickly realized I was over my head. It took me several days and it isn't perfect, but it turned out as good as it could given my budget and talent limitations.

Wait until you see our color matched bikes, sitting in the color matched interior (with interior decals that match the bikes), with these beautiful strapless tie down setups. The photos we are currently displaying were during the first installation in February in our old trailer. Their video will feature photos in both trailers, but more importantly in our new sweet setup when it is done in April.

In the first week of March, Condor Products joined us for the 2018 season. We will be showing their e-track adjustable chock in our middle front bike stall, while both of the back stalls will display their Pit Stop chocks (attaching to T-Rex strapless tie downs), and more of their related accessories.

My friends at Western Interiors helped me come up with the best combination of the looks I wanted, while still getting durability and useability. I chose the top grade of Armstrong vinyl in the largest checkerboard pattern I could find, with some marbling in both colors to help hide dirt/scuff issues.
