I just wanted to mention, but Yota already beat me to it.

Because of the Camaro's lower ground clearance (than a standard automobile), you should consider a "tilt-bed" trailer of some kind. The one posted by Yota is slick and the way to go in my book. Depending upon the loading angle, ramps might be a problem. The vehicle could possibly scrape bottom going up over the hump.

[QUOTE=yotaman96;4829539]I have a Sloan Kwik Load. It's the best open trailer I've ever used. The bed of the trailer rolls back and allows very low cars to drive on the trailer without scraping. Very easy to load up my lowered Camaro or lowered Trans Am. It has the front fairing, removeable fenders, a winch, two built in tool boxes, and deck lights.

I owned a Sloan also and in my opinion was one of the best trailers on the market for the money.
Used it to tow my 1970 Corvette.
If I needed one at the moment Sloan Kwik Load is what I would buy.

Here is my Camaro being loaded on an aluminum trailer and headed down to Illinois for my supercharger install.
On this particualr trailer,the fenders were low enough for the doors to clear but it barely made it up the ramps without scraping.
Again,tilt bed is the way to go.

It's built by Ironworks, and marketed by the Texas Trailer Man...

Car trailers any ideas?

I love mine but you would have to pick up a used one as they were only made two years............2003 and 2004. They were made in three lengths...........16', 18' and 20' by H & H Trailer Company. The model numbers are a STE-16, and STE-18 or a STE-20. The bed tilts and the ramps extend by remote control. I've had several guys who have seen mine that want to buy it from me but it isn't for sale. My trailer is the STE-18 (18' deck - trailer is 23' overall length).

That's a very nice setup.
