Car trailer value guide?


Recommended Posts

I will NEVER buy a trailer with the dual axles again. The stopping power and safety of the Tripps is beyond valuable.

Although I dont haul anything as heavy as a car, I said the same thing about a 2 axle m/c trailer.  I would never buy one with a single axle.

If my dolly is not enough, I get a U-Haul tandem.

I just dropped off my second load this week of donated automobilia items

transported from Charlotte, NC to

The EFV-8 Foundation Museum 

in Auburn , Indiana yesterday.

 

A Honda Gold Wing & Vintage Scooters in the front 😉

I transport a variety of automobilia

to & from museums on a regular basis

so rear barn doors with commercial 

aluminum ramps is my choice for 

cargo management & versatility 👍

Listen Bill Gates,  If I can build a trailer with triples on a 24' I will consider it.   But where this is gone I'm going to have to sell a car or a kid to pay for it.

 

Btw, you didn't mention it,  but another reason for the 7000lb axles is to get the 16 inch wheels which gets you the heavy duty tires - this is all info you have drilled in to me.

 

You need to comment what what class hitch we should be using and if we need the weight distribution one like this.

Buying a good trailer is buying safety. It also helps to run a trailer at fifty percent load. When you run them at 90 percent of capacity, they break.....a lot.

Try hauling a couple draft horses ( Percheron’s) around in a standard horse trailer and you will see how fast an undersized trailer will break!

Looks to be setup for dirt late models.

They are a low slung car that wont fit between the wheel houses, hence the built up ramps.

The full width rear door is necessary for these cars as well.

Also note that those shelves wont clear a tall car.
