If glue doesn't work, let me know, I'll send you another set of spacers that have a tighter tolerance and stay in better for you.

A kickstand is one of the accessories I am working on. Not only will it make it easier to mount/dismount the loaded trailer, it will also make the trailer a better table when you are at your camp spot.

I also picked up a set of Wolfman saddle bags today and ordered a pelican side case mounting system. I'm working on other storage solutions in place of the ActionPacker tub. For some people, having a bag or hard case that is easy to remove makes it much easier to haul their stuff into a hotel room or cabin. Not to mention, many people already have saddle bags or hard cases...

Stay tuned....
Okay, i'll definitely glue that spacer back in. That should help. Kickstand sounds great though.

As for the alternative luggage, I contacted fellow inmate corrado113 (see his custom cordura sewing thread) and he said he could make a zippered liner bag that fits the ActionPacker for around $40. That'll be great for transporting everything in and out of your house/tent/hotel.

Nevertheless, i'm eager to see the other options you come up with! I love pelicans!
