I've always thought it was a bad idea to advertise what's inside the trailer with graphics on the outside of the trailer.

torque (trk) n. - an excuse for the lack of momentum.

Dave, be careful posting pictures of that Lotus logo.
I hear there is a guy(you know who you are) on this site out in california who calls Lotus USA for copyright infringments.
why would anyone be such a ****?

I'm not selling/profiting from that logo, and as far as I know, Lotus doesn't offer a graphic that size for sale. So if they want to litigate over some free advertising for them, bring it on.

Jack, Fins0619,

Does the Elise fit on the 14' version of your Featherlite trailer you think? Also, how much is the tongue wait with the Elise parked on it, do you know?

Thanks!

Cant imagine why it wouldnt, but you would defintely be tail heavy, unless you loaded engine facing forward.

fins0619,

Understood. I don't want to put more than about 350 lbs on the hitch receiver if I can help it.

Lotusmark, definitely nice setup that way. No need for a huge tow vehicle.

The Volvo is rated at 3200 lbs, so at 2k, I'm nowhere near the limit.

Here is my modest single axle 12 footer rated at 3500lbs capacity. Trailer is about 1000lbs and Elise 1900lbs. It gets the job done.

Nice Volvo, is that an R? I just lost mine in a flood, unfortunately, and have been looking for a replacement.

Lost 2 toys in the garage as well (no pics, too traumatic), but insurance came through - for the most part - and I expect to have a new supercharged Elise parked back there very shortly. This one will be on a garage lift so even if the river rises 20+ feet again all will be OK!



By the way,
