EDIT: Finally sold it. Well, kind of gave it away, but seeing as how a friend has his 28 ft enclosed for $4500 and it hasn't sold yet, it's looking like the market is soft on trailers. It's going to a guy who needs a lighter trailer for his 69 Camaro drag car that won't knock his trans pan off when he loads it. I think it'll fit that bill quite nicely.



Well, now that Nick's trailer has found a new home (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/cool2.gif) it's time to make some space for it. It's a 1992 model, and has been in our possession since about 2001. It has served us well, and the only reason for selling it is because we no longer need it. It has slide-out ramps, and they are extra long, probably 10 feet (I haven't measured them), making loading a lowered car much easier. We've had NO issues loading our C Prepared Firebird.

I believe it is a 5000# GVW trailer, I'd have to verify that. but we've had our Firebird on it, a first-gen Ford Lightning, our 95 9C1 Caprice, and our 68 4-door Cadillac on it with no problems. It has a 2" ball Bulldog hitch, adjustable trailer jack (pull a pip pin and you can retract the jack arm up into the jack quickly). It is open down the middle, making carrying things smaller than a car difficult, but allows you to get under the car when it's on the trailer and do some work/checking without having to unload the car and put it up on jack stands.

The trailer deck is 83" wide and 15' long. The overall length of the trailer is 18'7", which allows it to easily fit into many garages. In fact that's what we'd do after an event, simply back the trailer, with the car on it, into the garage and close the door. Ready for the next event. Now, we have a shop with more space, but the fact that it would fit in many suburban garages was a selling point.

It has electric brakes, and a round 7-pin electrical plug that works with most late-model GM trucks. It may need re-wiring for Ford or Dodge. It has no spare mount, but does have a spare tire. All wheels are 15". The driver's side fender is removable, should you need that feature. The suspension is leaf spring, not torsion bars. We'd like to get $1800 OBO. It's not pretty, but functional. It could probably use a coat of paint, but what's there is okay for a factory job. It's been stored inside when not towing since we've owned it. Let me know if you have any questions.

The VIN tag. Sorry, hard to read:

If you were closer and I had a place to park it, I'd probably buy that. Just "because". I have truck, and a trailer would be quite handy.

It is almost to the price of scrap, but it does have good bones. We're like the 4th or 5th C Prepared and/or Houston Region SCCA member to own this trailer. I'd just like to move it out, as we're really terribly, terribly overbooked at the inn.

Hmmmmmm, This is exactly what I wanted to buy 6 months ago, but ended up getting a new trailer. I'm guessing I can get what I paid out of mine easily enough though.

Do you have a title for it? KS laws suck like that. How old are the tires?

Yes, titled and tagged. Tags currently good to March 2016. No problem there. We try to replace one tire a year, but that may have slipped a bit. I need to check the prod dates on them, but we have at least 2 tires less than a year old, another couple that are probably 2-4 years old, and maybe one that's about 5 years old. They all have less than 1000 miles on them, but we try to replace on time, not mileage. I can get the production date info later this week.

Oh, and it looks like it is a 5000 GVWR trailer, NOT 7000 as I thought.

Doh, I'm slow today... For some reason I thought you were in the DFW area not Houston. I think that drive probably kills the feasibility of buying this and selling my old one.

Been a while since I've bumped this, but sadly, it's still available. Lots of tire-kickers, and 'I'll be right back with the money!' but it's still in our possession. It's been a great trailer, we just got something new.

I no longer see a price in the ad. Did I miss it?

Oops. I looked like 3 times and didn't see it. Oh well, free bump. (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)

It left the property this morning. My wife pointed out that for the majority of it's existence, it went to SCCA events. Now, it's a NHRA trailer.
