Car Trailer

Have a Winnebago 22R on the E450 chassis. Have a performance car that I would like to take along on camping trips. Need a car trailer for low profile cars. Thoughts? Ideas?



Thanks much.

I have a 16 ft open deck drop back car trailer that I haul my 32 Ford Hot Rod on. I your car is really low, they sell an air ride trailer that is almost on the ground with the air out. Its for sports type race/custom cars. Kind of pricy. Mine, I raise the Jack up and use a winch to load so I can watch as it goes up. Wireless remote.

I tow behind our Tioga Class C 24' MH a 1970 MGB on a 12' aluminum tilt bed trailer . It has tandem axles and weighs 900lbs.

Total weight is 2900lbs. well below our max of 3500lbs.

The aluminum trailers are more expensive , but the benefits outweigh the cost .

Make sure you have enough RAW available to allow for a good experience.

Check that the fenders on a trailer are low enough to allow you to open the door after you load the car, otherwise you have to crawl out of the window. I don't have this problem loading my Alfa Romeo Spider since my Featherlite trailer has removable fenders (of course, I must remember to remove a fender before loading the car). Also, if your car has low ground clearance, the trailer tongue may need to be raised so the loading ramps have less angle and you won't drag the underneath of the car as it passes over the end of the trailer. I use the leveling jacks to raise the rear of my motorhome but have seen some people use boards under the their motorhome's rear wheels or just crank up the trailer jack.

We use a Trailex bolted aluminum trailer. Works very well.

Sounds like people tend to ignore the OCCC for their RV. Mine has an OCCC of 880 lbs and although it has a hitch rated for 5,000 lbs the 500 lb tongue weight would mean leaving the holding tanks empty for the most part.

I have a Big Tex CH 70 car hauler trailer and like how it handles & tows behind my Greyhawk 31 ft Class C . Tracks really straight and wieght distribution for my car is no problem. If you get a double axle trailer get brakes on both axles it makes a big difference. My trailer deck is 20 ft X 7 ft.

Only problem with an aluminum trailer is that it sometimes develop legs then walks away. So best to lock it down real good or better yet, park it in an enclosed garage when not in use. Don't ask me how I know.

OCCC or CCC is Occupant & Cargo Carry Capacity or Cargo Carrying Capacity which is the amount of cargo, luggage, occupants, water and tongue weight of a trailer. In short anything that you are going to support with the wheels on the coach. This is the GVWR of the coach less the actual unladen weight of the coach. This is a very important number for you to know.

Calson, that is what I was trying to convey. I don't know smaller Class C, but larger ones have a more limited OCCC. I agree with you, people are not paying attention to it.
