It's a tremendous idea for a dual purpose street/track, street/autocross, or street/drag car that maintains separate-for-competition-only wheels and tires, plus the jack, etc.

Whether tire trailer ever sees double duty as a hauler of bathroom fixtures, cabinets, drywall, bags of home improvement stuff, etc., is at the car owner's option. But it's a neat way of not having to buy a truck or SUV that you might never drive otherwise.

if it's on top maybe but still messes up with the look of the car but that's a big NO NO for me too. Well it's your car, whatever floats your boat!

That looks like an FBI drop seat kit you have on there. I had to spend a day at their shop once, really nice place too bad it's in the middle of nowhere.

I did exactly this for years.


OP...your setup looks good to me! Clean, simple and effective for what you want to do.

In researching possible addition of trailing my canoe I saw your photo. Any details on your gear? How's it working out?

Just another idiot jumping in. I have a hitch on order for the new SS convertible which I suppose constitutes at least a double sacrilege. I see no point in riding the Busa 12 hours in the heat on 95 to the North Carolina mountains, been there done that. Plus once I get there if the weather doesn't cooperate I can simply jump in the SS and hit the twisties in it. So if you see an idiot in a '13 SS Vert towing a trailer with a white Busa or a red R1 on it that would be this idiot. I will try to remember to post a pic.

I'll whip mine up!

I no longer wanted a truck I used 4 times a year. Camaro pulls, hauls, and kicks azz even with the bike loaded. Perfect tool for the job? No. But well within it's capabilities. And I get to do this up in them thar hills!

Your car, you do what you want with it! If I needed to haul stuff I'd put a hitch on my car...no shame especially when the car is your DD!
