  • Loaded the car for the first time today in new trailer.

        That looks sweet. Be sure to put some sort of chock to bump against for those front tires. Wouldn't want a run-away winch to drag the car into the nose of that trailer.
        You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

          There will be large rubber stops for the front, I only marked the placement of the racks so far lots of final prep to do but it is coming together and works just as I had hoped it would. When I get finished I will load the car and post pis of how it is tied down and secured anyway I am very happy with the results perfect size for my a and t's.

          I hadn't notice that until I posted it later two other people pulled in the drive to take a look, one guy even stayed to see how the winch pulled the car into the trailer. Next project finally get it inspected so I can tag it that has been a six week ordeal with the kansas vehicle enforcement. Then put in the insulation in the ceiling put in the ceiling and sides bolt load racks down and put load lights in.

          Tom, you need a trailer like Chief's. It would give you extra garage space for working. Just a thought, Pat

          Get a nice one Mitch and a w-900 kw with a double walk in sleeper I am sure it would cost less than getting three daughters married. Maybe a disbanded nascar team deal. My wife put in an order for me to remodel the house I had your request on top of the stack but she rearranged the stack, guess where you are?

        Torsion axles Tom plus they ride better than a sprung trailer. Think about it we shock absorber on cars to control the spring rebound but not a trailer.

              My T coupe has a trailer hitch that was factor made by some one.
              by George Miller
              I have a model T rear axle that was used on a trailer many years ago. I was thinking I would make a trailer of some kind I could pull behind my T. What do you think....

              Guys, If I had a trailer I would be joining yawl in Branson. This brings to mind a question about trailering for long hauls. I have a 29 Tudor and wonder what minimum size enclosed trailer I should be looking for. I know most are going to say to buy the largest I can afford. Do I really need two axles? Have a great time in Mo....

              Open vs closed trailer
              by Tom Rode
              I am starting to look at trailers for the Roadster, I have my eye on a 6X14 open trailer at Tractor Supply, dual axle, electric brakes, 5,000 lbs load capacity. Will need to reinforce the tailgate a little, rated to 1,000 lbs and since car weighs about 2,050 lbs I figure it is likely just over 1,000 on at least one axle. But I wonder about pulling car in open trailer. I brought it home that way, on...

              Open trailer towing long distances
              by Corley
              When I bought Elvira, my 28 Tudor, I towed her about 700 miles on an open trailer. I noticed that the top material would balloon up a little bit at higher road speeds. Never towed her over about 65 max, but I noticed this occasional ballooning started as low as 50 mph at times. Maybe it was an optical illusion, after all things look closer in the mirror, right? Now I've rarely noticed any ballooning...

              Had a set of dexter 3500# and wheels so i decided to build my own trailer after looking at what was out there plus the fact I have done this before and with the tools and equipment it would only take time and a lot of it. Main frame is 2x4 3/16 rectangular tubing with a 2x3 x1/4 center beam to the hitch cross members are 2x3 angle this trailer is way stouter than most I have seen but when i see sheet...
