I thought I would start a thread with some pictures of my nitro in and on various cars, I hope this will grow and everyone will share pictures of their paramotors either compacted into a car, or complete in a van or on a car with our various methods of transport.

Hopefully we can learn which van is best, which paramotors fit in which cars.

 

To start off heres a few pics.

This one always makes me chuckle first. My Smart Cabrio is an excellent van :)

A bit more effort and expense than a straight rack, so I don't know if this qualifies...?  I took a bog standard Ifor Williams box trailer and converted it into a 'stealth camper' to haul my motor in the dry and also have a  place to live whilst I was on the road.  The 'mobile man cave' has turned out quite well, with the paramotor well secured using ratchet straps to some cargo tracks I've secured to the floor.  Couple more photos to follow...

Heres another. Cheapy ebay bike rack £18. claimed to be rated to 30kg, takes my 85+kg. Simply grips the swan neck or other type towball.

Great pics.  That smart car looks like it would take off.

For those who dismantle and put in the car, is there any good way to limit the smell of fuel?

Is there a way to transport on the back of a hatchback without using a towbar? I do have a bike rack, but doubt whether it would be secure or strong enough. Obviously will need an electrical connection for lightboard.

Here is a cheap estate car bike rack from argos - perfect for the job and I just added number plate as lights are still visible. I have added a strap from the paramotor to my roof bars after the picture was taken. Works really well. I have bought a £12 BBQ cover to fully cover it when i think it might rain.
