Here's my rig, all set up & ready to go to Truckhaven tomorrow for TDS Desert Safari. The trailer is actually a rental unit (for now). Total length: 55'

I have been looking at enclosed trailers and have decided to purchase an 18' stacker, now to decide what manufacturer, ATC, Intech, Cargo Mate, Shadow?

Nice coach Mark,

If you go with the stacker or even with your current trailer you can protect your investment with our Trailer Toad.
This isn't a sales pitch, just concern from someone who sees the "results" of thinking the factory hitch and frame can handle the impacts and abuse the highways hand out.

If you get a minute take a look at our website and if you have any questions give me a call.

Free Shipping in March and April.

Safe travels,

Jok

Put T&E trailers on your list as well. They build a great trailer and are great to answer questions. In my opinion a cut above the ones you mentioned.


I would say the Haulmark Edge series (stackers included) would be closer to an ATC, with the ATC being slightly better due to materials but also at a higher price point.

Mike.

Trailers you tow behind your MH / Pictures of the whole rig

Thanks Shark2 for the compliments.
My trailer is 22' in length. Depending on what your hauling 18' stacker seems to short in length for me. Just remember you need room in front of the vehicle to move around to be able tie it down.

I'm currently pricing a trailer out for a friend and have been looking at the Stealth ultra-lite, ATC and the Intech. These aren't stackers though.

The toads racing stripe is just too much

The height and length proportions would not look right with a 18 foot stacker

Toad that's SIMS5 coach and trailer, ( Mine is the same color ).

Sims yes the most I will have in it is a small car below with the 2 Harley's and mountain bikes up top, longest would be a 20 footer, not much cost diff from 18 to 20 and all Alum trailer would be in the 5000 lb empty range.

Shark2.
I look forward to seeing the stacker all painted to match. Well maybe I don't, then I'd want to wrap or paint mine more than I already do!

I don't know about the stackers, but Intech makes a very nice looking trailer. I would also suggest T&E for a stacker. They look very nice also.

Am really pleased with the InTech we purchased. Built to our specifications. Great construction (visited plant) and they provided a lot of pictures of our build. Am impressed with their construction.

Had a couple minor (really minor) issues and the customer service was top notch.

Looked originally at a HaulMark but the trailer curb weight was 12,000. Price was right but weight not so much. InTech trailer is 6350 so can get all of the toys in. Loaded the tongue weight is 800 lbs because of the spread triple axles.
