    Bike trailer

    7x5 is ideal A 6x4 bike trailer would be a tight fit but possible if well designed. A bike is around 7' long so you would have the rear wheel overhanging, and the centre bikes front wheel well onto the drawbar. No chance you would get 3 bikes in a 6x4 box trailer. A trailer must be registered if over 3 m long (i think) which is another factor to consider

    Building a garage

    A brick one will cost at least $20k. Just getting the plans, permits, engineering, soil test and other fees for mine cost about $2700. With a steel one the permits etc will likely be half that.

    Rec Reg Coverage

    As far as the actual coverage goes, it's reasonably good. if you spend the night in hospital, all medical is covered. If not, then the first $600 or so of your claim is not covered (an excess). (If a medical provider does not bill the tac direct (say a physio), then you will be out of pocket as the tac only pays a scheduled fee like Medicare. If they bill direct, then no cost to you.) income payments are only covered after 1 week. Only 80% of your wage is covered, up to a maximum of about $1200 a week. they will reimburse you for taxis to get to and from work and medical appointments if you can't drive. they do tend to suffer from some of the beaurocratic crap and inefficiencies you would expect from a government department, but on the whole they get the job done and the cover is well worth having.
