I just bought a hot rod hauler, so naturally it's time to hot rod it. It's super light - only 1450lbs and I can lift it on and off the hitch and maneuver it around a bit. Has 4 wheel brakes and I got a pair of RaceRamps to make loading and unloading easy. My Camaro and Beretta are both really low with a lot of front overhang. It fits in the garage - barely! I had measured and knew it would be close, but that's why I didn't buy the 18-footer. It rides pretty rattly unloaded, but backing it up is pretty easy. Way better wheelbase than the utility trailer I used all summer. Had to cut a D-ring off to make room for a winch mount, and I can tell you the welds are solid. While I had the grinder out I rounded the corners of the trailer frame - my knee discovered that they were sharp! My old man had some million dollar conspicuity tape, so I hit the 4 corners with that for aesthetics. I tried to find a spot to keep the RaceRamps but there really isn't a good one. So they'll have to go in the truck. A buddy's trailer has a receiver for a winch mount that I thought was genius, so I made one too. It will make swapping the winch back and forth from my trailer to my dad's super easy. But after getting the mount welded in and finished I kinda want to raise it up a bit. The winch cable will drag on the crossbar as it is now. A couple inches would do the trick. I can buy an offset receiver to gain either 2 or 4 inches, but that's getting kinda hokey with a receiver, receiver adapter and hitch. So I may just cut up the old winch mount from my dad's trailer and make a hitch mount similar to what I bought, but taller. I also thought about making basically a fairlead with a single roller...I've seen small ones on tilt deck trailers. I've got some cast iron pipe I can grease and sleeve in conduit...don't know if that would really work or not. Trying to decide which way would be better. Anybody have some creative ideas?
