No shit. Towing 10k# on a half ton truck is silly. With a diesel you'll never notice that the trailer / car is even behind you. Especially a dually. Gd luck parking that thing at the mall. It's not going to fit in many parking spaces!!!!

I don't build trailers, but I would imagine it has something to do with allowing some degree of flex in the length of that trailer... or it could just need some ironing....

It's only 8K... and yes, the new truck will be tougher to park... but it/I don't go to malls.... and when I do, it's fine for me to park way out...

and the bride unit and I are considering getting a 5th wheel in a year or two, which is why I'm getting more truck than I need right now.... room for growth...

It maybe I F'ed it up pulling it out of the lot. There's a duo at the end of the driveway and when I pull out all 6 wheels go airborne and it rides on the tail wheels. Prob not the best thing to do but hey, they put tail wheels on for a reason!!

I absolutely love this trailer. Car doors can easily open while the trailer is in the load position because the bed is past the fenders. Otherwise, four wing nuts can be unscrewed to remove the fender to allow the door to open. The winch and wind fairing were a factory option.




Nice that is easy

NICE, do you winch it in or drive it in? Is it possible to get out of the car if you drive it in.

We drive both cars in. The winch takes to long. Because of our trailer length the cars land in either side of the wheel wells. Which allows the doors to open wide enough to get out. On the shorter trailers its dukes if hazard style to get out. Unless you have a drivers side escape door. Which, if I was having one built, would be a no brainier.

Very sweet John. If I was into racing that much I'd def have to look into something that blinged out. I've only seen the track twice this year so I'd be suicidal I had that nice of a trailer and didn't use it. Pretty much how I felt last year with the boat sitting all year.
