The door is just the normal side door on most standard trailers. I guess you could put a motorcycle in that way if you had a custom ramp. Wouldn't have room for a motorcycle and most cars in a 22' trailer though. Golf cart and motorcycle, yes.

Here is another side view that's a little closer.

Thanks Glenn. Thought about that but I don't store the Jeep, it's my daily driver and I would still have to pay to store it because I don't have room at home. The Jeep flat-tows so beautifully and is so much easier for traveling than the enclosed trailer. I just doubt I will ever get back into racing in the future which was the biggest reason for holding onto it.

The big deciding factor for me was when we traveled to Texas last month. We were traveling long days and then got into a campground, took about two minutes to unhook the Jeep to run and grab a bite of dinner and do some sightseeing. Then back to camp, about 3 minutes or so to re-connect the Jeep and it was ready for an early morning departure. Had we taken the trailer than trip I would not have unloaded the Jeep to go and explore Albuquerque for the little bit we did just to load it back up again.

I still love looking at coaches hauling enclosed trailers and drooling over everyone's setups though. Just won't be us.

Sorry to sidetrack the thread. Just rambled a bit.

Mike.

Nice looking rig. As for the side door, we hauled our Wide Glide by loading it through the side door for a year or so. Worked out well. Pulled the Jeep into the trailer, then I had an aluminum ramp that I stuck out the side door to run the Wide Glide up into the trailer. It barely fit across the trailer with only about an inch to spare. Once we bought the HD Ultra Classic I had to load it in the trailer first from the rear gate, slightly angled into the nose then pulled the Jeep into the trailer to strap it down. It was not feasible to bring in the side door nor would it fit length wise across the trailer. For a little smaller bike than the Ultra Classic though, it is a very good way of loading and hauling a bike.

Mike.

Interesting topic, who has the longest setup, only reply if you actually drive down the road with the setup. I know I have seen longer ones than mine (72 feet).

I haven't measured mine yet, but roughly 70' total.

Glenn, the 81 Cutlass race car inside is small block Olds powered, runs 9.46 at 142 mph.

I see on your website your son is into Olds cars, nice. In Rochester, you have one of the best Olds engine builders, BTR Performance !

We're 64' - 09", legal in most states. It's my rolling garage with our Can Am Spyder inside along with tools, bicycles, kayak and more.

I have heard of them, but never been there.

Ever heard of Ross Racing Engines, they do not have a slick web site but are good. They run this 7.0 front engine dragster (Oldsmobile powered in the series I run)

How do you guys run Olds without them coming apart? While they made a great car engine, normally those Olds big blocks couldn't take the high RPMs. I ran a 425 in my '71 cutlass. The webing eventually cracked.

I run a Pontiac, It was originally a ram air III which made it an original four bolt main the the webbing was not under cut on.

I'm at what I believe to be it's limit on survivabity. That is I have been told they will hold together up to 750 HP. I'm currently at 713.

I want to go faster so I have just purchased an al aluminum aftermarket Pontiac block and will be building a 1,200HP engine using it as the base.

The only thing left stock in my current engine is the block and the caps.

You can shot me a PM if you wish, let's get back to L O N G Rigs

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

Mandalay 43A and Carson enclosed trailer for the PWC and ATVs. Total length is 65 feet. Yup, 65 feet. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

zMotorsports, how do you like towing the 24' and 28' trailers with the single rear axle motorhome at highway speeds? Windy conditions?
