  • Question for Mitch

    Mitch the car covers you have for your Model A's, could they also be used to cover the vehicle while being towed on a trailer? I am going to need to buy one and I will need it to with stand travel on a trailer for short distances. I live on a dirt road and it gets very dusty and the last thing I want to do is drive it down that road uncovered, especially after it had been repainted. Thanks Hugh

    Never cover a car on a moving open trailer with anything. That would spell disaster and beat the paint to death. Investing in an enclosed trailer would be the way to go. I do cover my car inside the enclosed in case a door pops open, plus it adds overall protection.

        What would be a good size enclosed trailer to get for my 1930 Model A Coupe?

          It depends how much room you want. 16' would be the shortest imo.. The car is about 13' long bumper to bumper. 18' is a good size,

            I guess then 18' is what I will look for. Thanks Hugh

              That would be perfect and not too big, but not cramped either

                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...

                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 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...

                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....

                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...

                Single Wheel Trailer
                by Jordan
                I have no idea if this is the appropriate place to post this or not- but there is a lot of knowledge here.

                My brother and I inherited 2 single wheel allstate trailers to tow behind our Model A's. One was restored and has a wood body mounted, the other is an original metal bodied trailer. It has been taken apart to be restored, but hasn't been painted yet. I am considering selling the...
