Default Open car trailers?

I'm looking to buy one but have no idea where to look in Richmond. I don't know how much they usually go for either, but I guess I'm looking for something cheap and sturdy. Anybody have any have any recommendations on places to go or any brands that you found that make some quality products?

econotrailer. brand new at 1600 with 4 brakes. theyre light, durable, and dovetail'd.

their "factory" is located in PA, i just drove up one day and bought one.

http://www.econotrailer.com/ i would call them and see if they have a dealer near you, but really the drive is worth it.

and you can fit the lowest of cars on them with some little homemade ramp things, seen here:


best part about them is that i could turn around today and sell it for 1600.

I bought one in Manasass. 2 axles, $1600 with a full deck and electric brakes. I thought I'd use it twice a year but, it's more like once a month since I've gotten it. I don't have to make sure my track car stays street legal any more too.

After bending valves at VIR, I decided I wasn't going to drive the track car to far-away tracks any more.

Odds are if you google richmond and car trailer/hauler, you'll find a trailer sales place. There are all sorts, from wally's super light small car trailer to my behemoth pictured below. Either way, odds are you'll pay 1500-3000 for a steel open trailer, if you want a super light alu trail there is a company called trailex, but you pay 5k+ for one.

What are you pulling it with? Get a spare tire/wheel too when you buy one. I didn't and ended up regretting it.

In all my reasearch, Kaufman trailers had the best price, reputation, and quality that I could find.
They are in NC.

I checked out their site and it looks like they got some nice stuff, sucks that it's so far away though.

Anyone here have any experiences with wooden floored trailers? And any advantages/disadvantages?

I am also looking to buy one. If you want to set up a time to check out the place in Gainesville, maybe we can get a discount for buying more than one.
