Been MIA. Spent the last several days up at the cabin.

Car prepped with luggage and dogs inside, snow rack on top.



The "spare parking" pad at the cabin was covered in snow, still tried to park in it lol

Did some tinkering with the trailer this weekend.

Hooked it up to the Crosstrek for the first time and took it out around town. Felt nothing in the Crosstrek

Obviously will more weight in it, especially up hill, it will be a different story.



With the car hitched up, I threw a level on it to see how the rake was. Just slightly off by about an inch, not too bad.



Since I would like the RTT to sit level/lower than the roof of the Crosstrek, I threw up a string line to see how high off the bedside that would be.

Ive got 19 inches roughly.





After I got the measurements I wanted, I removed the tool box and lumber rack. Now ive got my blank canvas

Yesterday morning met a couple friends to snap some pics of our cars and grab some lunch.

My old roommate brought out his fully built STi that's pushing 600 WHEEL horse power


He used to have a 1998 RS with an STi drivetrain swap. He sold it to one of our friends and he brought it out as well. This little guy has around 450 to the wheels.


and a bunch of the Crosstrek lol







Friend also brought the drone out to have some fun with. 4k pic/video at 24 FPS.

Took the trailer to the scales.

Weighed just the trailer, unhitched from the Crosstrek, to get the base weight.

Anyone wanna guess what it came in at?
