So, I bought this trailer yesterday. It is about 16' long and has 5.5" x 5 wheels, rear trailer brakes, new wood (1 bolt in the middle of each board means it is sure to cup), and new paint! lol
Finally! I have been looking for one for over a year and came close to making a bad decision a couple of times, but hopefully have something worthwhile here. What do you think?
So far I have met with a trailer/hitch company that does great work and they are going to:
Build ramps about 12" wide (I want them light)(should I buy something on eBay?);
Build ramp storage along each side towards the front. I am afraid under-trailer pockets would allow the trailer to scrape too easily;
Add cups along the side and in front so I can add a removable front protector for cars and removable sides for possible other uses if I need it;
a small hand winch - not a cheap whore - but they said electric winches don't work unless connected or batteries and they just get stolen;
prep the front for a trailer box;
hopefully do something with the front top-wind jack so it is higher off of the ground and maybe has a wheel;
re-wire everything to include the rear axle brakes;
add hub buddies;
and replace the fenders.
I am also looking to get the "E" track combo for the tie-downs. Best kind?
So I want ornamental wheels but I may have to change the hubs. No biggy, but any idea what size hubs to change to? I want to put on wheels that resemble Rotas or LSS wheels, but I don't have a source so I don't know the size/ lug layout.
I also like the idea of an adjustable stop bar across the front so I can drive the lotus to the exact right spot every time.
And no, I won't tow anything except a bare trailer with a Lexus!
