2017 RGU sidecar next project

For wife and I to continue to enjoy our trips the time is coming for change. Trikes do no appeal to us ,so another sidecar is the way to go. In May we are going though Murry Ky and stop in at Hannigan motorsports. We want to see a couple hacks we are interested in and check out Hannigan motorsports. They are only 530 miles away so that makes them number one on the list. Not new to sidecars I have some idea of what I want and don't want. I don't want short cuts so taking time to do this right. As of now the Classic Twin appears to meet our needs. The flip open was number one on wife list.
Wife will still ride on the bike, the Sidecar is mainly for storage and stability . The right setup like this with Quick disconnect will allow the removal of the side car with little effort. This will be my first Sidecar on a touring bike so there is a bit more to it.
The Sidecar is not that expensive , but when you add up everything else it does get to around $12,000. Below is a list of option we are looking at. Some may not be needed , that will all get figured out as we work with Hannigan. Plan is to have it on for next years trips. here is a list of options . If you have experience and something to suggest I am listening.

Disc Brake with Quick-Disconnect Hydraulics (Mandatory on Certain Bikes)
ECC (electric camber control) (HIGHLY Recommended for ALL Bikes)
