I used a flatbed tow truck for my 7. They were pretty excited to help, charged me $100.

Flatbed is the way to go, but leave the horiz. stab OFF.

Thank you all for the many suggestions. Now it looks like I have a few different options.

If I may be so bold as to hijack this thread, I think all the photos I've seen of the move to the airport have been of aircraft already on gear. Anyone ever move the plane from garage to hangar before putting it on gear?

I moved mine several times with the gear off and on. I believe it is quite a bit easier off the gear than on. I built a 4'x5' platform for the fuselage to sit on to move around in my garage. I used a piece of plywood to roll the fuselage onto the trailer and then off. It worked fine. It is much easier to work on the fuselage off the gear and if I were to build again, the gear may be one of the last things to install!

I just purchased a RV10 project on the gear. Hired an aircraft recovery company to move it. They normally moved crashed planes. They lifted it onto a trailer with a set of Gin poles and a winch. They had a bar that was wider than the fuse and they dropped straps down each side to the spar. Took a small amount of balancing (pitch). It worked great. Everything else was inside a trailer. You might see if there is a recovery co. in your area.
