Enclosed Car Trailer

We have enclosed car trailers from simple to stylish.  Our sizes range from a 8.5x16 up to a 8.5x53', and weight ratings from 7000# to 21000# (see enclosed cargo trailers for smaller sizes).  Our brands include Sure Trac, Neo, and Lark United.  Generally an enclosed car trailer is used for a variety of applications, but is defined by being dry box on wheels that is road legal, usually has a aluminum exterior, a side and rear access, and is sufficient height to stand up inside.  Enclosed car trailers are often hard to find used as people can always use dry storage, particularly when it's also road legal and doesn't require a building permit.  Enclosed car trailers are generally 8.5' width (actually 8'4" to outside of box, about 8' inside wall-to-wall) and come with a beavertail, HD ramp, D-rings, etc, setup for a car.  The most common sizes tend to be an 8.5x20 7000#, 8.5x20 9990#, and 8.5x24 9990# GVW.  We typically recommend buying a 9990# car trailer, as putting a car alone in a 7000# puts you right at the legal limit without putting any additional items inside.  Most steel car trailers weigh approx 3200-3800# empty, while aluminum tends to be about 2600-3200#.  In recent years a "V-nose" has become an often preferred nose style, although a traditional radius front is still better suited for many commercial applications (we stock both).  A V-nose generally implies a flat top roof design, while a radius/"flat" front generally entails a round top roof style (although other variations exist). Enclosed trailer frames are most commonly steel with an aluminum exterior, however, we also keep a full line of Neo aluminum car hauler's in stock.  Aluminum trailer's often weigh less, are more corrosion resistant, come with more standard features, and often have better craftsmanship.  One common "issue" of enclosed trailers are keeping them light enough to pull, yet heavy duty enough to hold up to commercial use.  A good rule of thumb is a good quality well equipped steel cargo in a 10K will run about $2000 more than a super economy 7K in the same size.  Also, an aluminum car trailer tends to run about $2000 more than the same size well equipped steel car hauler.  For instance, you could range from $5000 (economy 7K 20' steel) to $7000 (well equipped quality built 10K steel 20') to $9000 (well built aluminum 20'). This segment of the industry has also seen an influx of junk flood the market - beware what you buy.  If you don't see what you are looking for, give us a ring as we surely can get it or build it.  Car trailers come in so many sizes, colors, weight ratings, styles, heights, interior/exterior finishes, material types, prices, etc., that we often find it better to have one built to suit.
