The Colts Drum & Bugle Corps had the good fortune to move into a new Kentucky equipment trailer for the 2019 season. The trailer the corps had toured in from 2002-2018 is now available for sale. The trailer is fully operational albeit beginning to show her age. The trailer is a 1990 Kentucky Double Drop Deck that’s 48’ long. These trailers are very difficult to find on the used market. The biggest reason for our upgrade last season was to gain the extra space of a 53’ trailer.
The unit is ready to go with aluminum stairs mounted in the nose and rear, a portable wood ramp for rolling into the rear, overhead and exterior lighting, and lots of compartmentalized storage to make the most efficient use of the cubic feet available. You can find a collection of photos here.
Sidenote: The papers you see strewn around are not old debris from the last time we used the trailer. Instead, a trick here in the Midwest is to toss several dryer sheets into vehicles that are being stowed outdoors to keep any critters from taking up residence in the winter months.
The trailer is available for $30,000 for pick up in Dubuque, Iowa. She may go fast as we had several bands and WGI groups reach out to us last fall when we announced the purchase of our new trailer. We had to wait to sell until we were guaranteed our new unit would be available for the 2019 summer tour. But now it’s time for her to find a new home.
