I am still in the hunt for a GROB 109B once I get my capitol freed up. I am having to support a septic tank replacement for my wife's house sell. Once the her house sells, she repaying her loan from me. So I have a fantasy in my head I want to check for practicality before any plane purchase. So I would appreciate practical feedback from other Grob 109B owners. These are the dimensions I found in the manual. Inches Feet Inches Meters Length 319 26 7 8.1026 Wingspan 685 57 1 17.399 Height 71 5 11 1.8034 I can buy an enclosed trailer measuring 78 inches height 8.5 feet width 28 feet long for about 14K USD. So practical considerations for using this trailer for transport and storage. Finding affordable hanger space is very difficult where I live. But getting a parking spot of the tarmac is more reasonable. I don't have any dimensions for the 109B for disassembled. My plan is to build a one person assembly rig that will allow me to move the glider in/out of the trailer and put the wings on. So if any owners have dimensions and advice for the glider I would appreciate it. Horizontal stab dimensions Width, length, and thickness Rudder dimensions From ground to top of horizontal stab attached. From ground to top of rudder with horizontal stab removed. Fuselage Landing gear width Body width with wings removed Body width with wings attached but folded Overall length with wings attached folded from nose to wingtip From ground to top of canopy. That means for every flight, I will be assembling and disassembly the glider. I have experience with a GROB 103 and that is seriously heavy airplane. So how much will I start hating the assembly process? Thanks in Advance!
