Good luck Bill glad you were able to get it home. I hope you have as much enjoyment with the coupe as I have.

Jack, Thank you for the info and the offer to coach me through the task. My cell is 931-237-1046, however, last evening I decided to go ahead and fly it home since I have a friend that is going to provide me with some seat time in his coupe 415-C LSA. The coupe I am getting is only 300 miles away in Ohio. Originally, I thought it would be some time before I could confidently pilot the little craft. Thank you,
Bill

Removal is simply a matter of four bolts and having lots of hands for supporting the wing in the process.

I transported my plane 1000 miles on a car trailer, the wings wrapped in blankets from uhaul with foam pads in between and strapped down under the plane. It traveled fine. The car trailer springs are a little stiff for our light airplanes, I wouldn't use it all the time. I used a steel channel clamped to the trailer to support the MLG as the trailer was not wide enough. photo attached.

What is involved in removing the wings from an ERCOUPE 415-C and what size trailer will I need to transport the same? Also, does anyone have a pattern for a cut across the wing airfoil so I can build a rack to transport the wings on the same trailer with the coupe?

As most of you may have already guessed, I am brand new concerning the Ercoupe. Need lots of help! All assistance is greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Bill
