It has four-wheel antilock disc brakes, stability control and side curtain airbags (for the first three rows of seating). In frontal-impact crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Chevrolet Express scored five stars (the highest possible).

The Nimrod was once a pop-up camper trailer which was donated to the troop. Later is was custom designed and built from the base up to be a bicycle trailer. It can transport nine (9) bicycles, with a maximum of thirteen (13) bikes using a bike rack which can be added to the back.

The top is hinged and can be lifted to access a storage area large enough for group and personal equipment supporting 12-15 people. It can also be used for supporting small group camping and transporting other supplies.

This trailer has traveled far and wide in support of a long distance bicycling program which stretched west to Couer d'Alene, Idaho, north to Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada, south to New Orleans, Louisiana, and east to Portland, Maine. It has also been to many other places supporting other great adventures on numerous trips.
