Storing your Trailer

I just recently purchased a Chariot Cabriolet and am wondering what others do for storage of there trailer between uses. I have a 2 car garage that was already pretty snug before this acquisition.

I fold mine and store it in the "rolling shed" AKA minivan. I keep all motor vehicles outside and bikes have their own stationary shed.

My garage is split level, so I roll it under a side platform off a small staircase that connects the two. Have small bungee between 2 hooks near top of platform to let the trailer stand nearly on its tail end to maximize room in front of it for small items and so no one trips over the tow arm while entering thru the lower door.

I hang my burlee bee and I also hang my Yakima hitch rack from bike hooks. I also have a Kidarooz jogger-trailer, that on gets used almost daily, it doesn't get hung, its harder to fold, also.

I'd love to see a picture of your split-level garage! Is it front-back? Side-side?

I have 2 trailers. a Carry Freedom City, It folds flat .. wheels stay on.
Also have a Burly Flatbed, tongue folds down, wheels come off with a QR
The city folded up goes in the cargo area of the Flat bed, and both fit in a closet.
