Parks if you find a fix for the flat tire problem please post it as our Tipke cart tires have the same problems. I haven’t tried to find tubes for my tires, that was mentioned as a fix but I think solid tires might be a better solution.

Bill, Iím not near my cart to measure it, but I think it has a 3/4Ē axel. If so, these wheels should work https://www.northerntool.com/shop/to...0576_200660576

The Tripke website also mentions airless foam filled tires. They donít say how to order them but I suspect a phone call would solve that.

They also make a bicycle hitch.

Now I will say this, if you buddy boat around with another cruiser like ASD, you may have to make several trips just to restock the ďAdult beveragesĒ, just saying!

Cheers

Oh bla bla bla bla!! I will say it's true on the adult beverages.

We really like the large bicycle type of tire on our folding aluminum dock cart. They pull easily even when loaded, go up and down over curbs and easily bridge gaps in the dock planks. When we brought our boat home from Virginia we used it for all of our grocery shopping. What is nice is that it will carry 4 to 6 large paper grocery bags full. It folds up pretty easily and stores in our forward cabin. It is really nice not to have to hunt around the docks for a cart at the marinas that do supply a cart. When we had our boat in San Diego the dock cart hunt was always at least 10 to 15 minutes of searching and then you found the cart that was last used to haul greasy engine parts or dead fish. It is well worth the effort and cost having our own cart aboard.

For around marinas, carts are fine and big tires great.

But for long haul, larger loads....... pulling a wagon has proven to me to be much easier than perfectly balancing the load. If you dont, it causes you to fight lifting or pushing down the handle over a longer distance say of a mile to a grocery and back.

How about some thing like ( SLIME tire sealant) I used it once on a small garden wagon and it worked well.

Just a thought.

Thanks Parks and KenK, my tires are showing signs of dry rot so I will try sliming them first.
It is true about balancing the load with the two wheel cart vs four wheeled wagons. But the Tripke seem to haul a bigger load, we use the wheel barrow method.

Hopcar, if it has pneumatic tires, fill it with slime and have it self - seal any leaks... Put enough in there and you have a non-pneumatic tire.
