  • Car tie down system for your car.

    This is what i use in my trailer I run heavy straps from the back axle to the front and heavy straps from the back axle to the rear. I run straps over both tires attached to the e-track over the tires after the car is winched into the trailer comes up against the removable chocks, i have their position marked so that when the car is in place the tongue weight will always be correct.
    Rust-resistant steel wheel chocks help stabilize an ATV, UTV, car, or truck that's tied down in your truck bed or trailer. The E-track fittings allow you to easily move the chocks to different anchor slots on horizontal E-track. Lowest Prices for the best tie down anchors from Erickson. Erickson E-Chock Wheel Chocks for E-Track - Powder Coated Steel - Qty 2 part number EM09162-2 can be ordered online at or call 800-298-8924 for expert service.

    Oh yeah paat been driving it as well after the 1400 mile shakedown cruise with the trailer just made a couple of additions to make it work as intended and it does it perfectly as I had hoped, had not quite planned on the number of hours i put in this thing. I was on the gamarri tour in iowa just recently and am planning on a lot of driving til it gets cold and it drives really nice with the mitchell overdrive and radial tires.

      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...

      by BNCHIEF
      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.
