Trailex Question -

Trailex Question -

Due to severe back issues Iím considering the purchase of a trailer rather than use my little tire trailer. That would save my back loads of stress on track days.

Iíve been looking at Trailex. There seems to be almost nothing available at a decent price.

However, I have found two CT-8060. That is their largest open trailer. My question is this too much trailer for a Lotus or possible p-car or Evora down the line.

Thanks for your thoughts -

I had a trailex before I moved to an enclosed trailer for full race support. These trailers really hold their value so even if it is a bit more than necessary to tow a Lotus, at some point resale will be an issue so bigger is probably better than smaller.

I have a Featherlight open trailer sized just right for an Elige. No waste, minimal weight, maybe easier to maneuver and store.

Can't put an Evora or most any other car on it. Would be harder to resale like JJim says.

Anyone can make something complicated. It takes genius to make it simple. Einstein.
