I needed a place for the 75 pound dog to ride on while me and my son run around in the Reep. Before all I could do was carry my son or the dog so I made the dog a new riding place and he can run around on the back of the Reep while tethered to a tie down (stainless boat cleat) that connects to his chest harness. Now I got to get him a set of goggles to wear to keep stuff out of his eyes and we'll be fixed. I made this from marine grade plywood that has a little bit of curve to it so if he has a little accident it will run off the sides and not stay in the middle. I mean anything can happen so I try to think ahead on these things as much as possible. Maybe it wont come inside and down the back of our necks....... Only a field test will tell for sure. Any way we gave ol Buddy some high traction matting to sink his claws into when he's hanging 20 on the back of this thing.
Now for part two of this project, the dog run gets flipped over and mounted on the back of the Reeper and is used as a wind blast to stop the wind from grabbing my windshield while I'm pulling it down the road backwards on the trailer. This just gets cooler by the minute gang. And all ya'll thought I was just building a dog run for the rear for ol Buddy. At speeds above 70 MPH the Reeper windshield would grab air and whip the trailer when passing large trucks on two lane roads. This should help a lot of that problem and keep things more steady as they pass. Nothing is more scarier than trailer whip at 70+ and you got to get it back under control.
