Also if I decide to replace the jeep with a car I can still use the same trailer.
I have been around race trailers for many years, and bigger is always better for space, but maneuverability, and total legal length are where I make my choice from. I currently own an 18 ft. Enclosed, my next purchase will be a 20 ft. Plenty of space if you design things to meet your needs. But then again, I could bowl in the 24 footer.

Hopefull pics of my trailer will com thru. It is basically a Pace Sport with barn doors and very plain looking externally. It was originally used to take motorcycles to the racetrack and then I stopped doing that looking to save money. I morphed it into a bugout trailer since it tows behind my jeep very well. When we decided to get the MH the bugout concept was redundant. I transformed it back to being a motorcycle hauler but it did gain electrification and rfrigeration and lost a lot of weight in the process. The trailer weighs 1000 lbs and carries 1000 lbs so bike and gear can be added without any fear of GVWR issues. When we go somewhere it will be a small private garage/shop/studio with tools and cold beer. The best part is the Jeep can also haul it for trips and such. Not as big as the ones I have seen here, nor a beautiful but it does accomplish its purpose. Hope you like it! Please see blog and disregard the bogus pictures here, my bad!

Same here but I special ordered mine with "E" rated tires and NOT Carlisle brand. I replaced them two years ago, at 6 years old, due to starting to weather. Tires is not something you want to skimp at.

Super nice rigs guys ! If I see yah all at a light i know i'm going to stand on er so I don't have to follow behind you all day. Would need a nice flat stretch of Hwy to pass one of those outfits. Then again, with the power today most you guys probably cruise right along with your 70 + ' rigs.......??

72 feet in length and 325 HP, cruises happily at 65. How ever just came back through Vermont on route 9, on one 9% grade I was down to 35 MPH, but on the tail of a tractor trailer that could go no faster

Nice looking setup. He should be happy with that for a while.
