Having a ramp door option to eliminate the ramp shuffle would be interesting.

Thanks!
Paint them white. Helps quite a bit.

It looks really nice, but other drivers on the road might not appreciate the reflectivity either from the sun or driving behind at night - any thoughts on this aspect of the design?

These are custom made for customers. This is not any different than some of the semi trailers you see on the road.

Hi Gary
In Europe I see many trailers that have smaller wheels (12" or 10") tucked in completely under the bed allowing the trailer to be much narrower, but I've never seen this is the US. This kind of trailer would be ideal for my situation as I could fit it in my garage with room to spare - something that's just possible with a standard width trailer. See here:

Trailer Range - Brian James Trailers

Is this something you'd ever consider manufacturing?

Regards
Paul

Wow, this is totally sweet! Nice find... I'd be interested in something like this also. What are some of the drawbacks of having a relatively long, narrow trailer?

I use an Aluma 54"x10' for my offroad toys and I love how easy it is to maneuver around since it's so dang narrow. I would love having a single (Montrose) trailer that could tow the Exige as well as everything else I move around.
