Along with inheriting my Dads vintage 1928 Chev Roadster, I also inherited his car trailer for transporting it. And while moving the Chev from down South up to Wellington I noticed the sounds the trailer makes.

The trailer has a light steel wind-shield at the front which rattles. The deck is mostly made of steel, so it has a lot of interesting resonances. Also being a trailer, there is minimal engine noise so I figured it was worth recording for use as onboard components for many other vehicles.

After doing initial test recordings, I decided the light steel wind-shield at the front of the trailer was too rattly. So I used ratchet tie downs/strops to firmly wrap the wind shield in blankets, as per the photos below.

The trailer was rigged with six mics and my Sony a6300 camera:
– Sennheiser MKH8040 LR on each wheel
– Sennheiser MKH8020 pair sheltered LR behind the wind shield
– Sennheiser MKH8050 sheltered centre behind the wind shield
– LOM Geofon on chassis, capturing rumble.

The surfaces driven on include:
– down my driveway, scraping plants & bushes
– suburban driving 0-50kmph (0-30mph)
– suburban arterial route driving 50-70kmph (30-45mph)
– highway driving 90kmph 55mph
– gravel road driving 0-50kmph(0-30mph)
– driving over multiple judder bars or speed bumps 0-10kmph (0-5mph)
