A mate saw a bushtracker in WA with an outboard motor stand on 1 side of the A frame and a fold up trailer on the other side. Anyone out there with any knowledge of this.

I could well be the culprit. I have an 18' with a a Little Bulldog folding trailer & an outboard mounted on the A frame. To boot, I'm a West Australian.

The trailer was purchased from & fitted BT at the time of delivery (22 Jun 04). It is mounted on the near side (kerb side) of the A frame on a "pole" & sits between the stone guard & the spare wheel. Taking it off requires the undoing of 2 bolts before lowering it to the ground. We always remove the stone guard first as this removes the need to lift the trailer over the stone guard arm.

The outboard (15hp Yamaha) is mounted on a frame hinged on the off side of the jerry can holders with a securing bolt on the other. The frame straddles the jerries (2x20l cans) with the motor in a horizontal position. To mount the o/b you undo the securing bolt, lift the frame to its upright postion, attach the motor as if you were fixing it to the back of your boat, roll it all forward & re-secure it with the securing bolt. The leg of the motor rests in a V piece.

We've done over 30000km with the trailer & motor mounted as such & have had no problems whatsoever. Both are well protected & probably ride in the smoothest part of the whole set up.

Hope this helps. Feel free to contact me should you wish to discuss it any further.
