Why buy an open trailer and deal with weather and security issues?

Trailer is Located in Calgary AB Canada. I am willing to deliver within reason and cost. Custom built by Rance in 2010, all aluminum trailer.

- 14 foot box + 4 foot v-nose (exterior)
- 7.5 feet wide (exterior)
- Custom low roof 6.5 feet tall
- ~21 foot total length
- ~2000 lbs total weight

Trailer fits under a normal 7' residential garage door. Stored always indoors in my 24x24 garage. Excellent shape and will always look new with all aluminum construction.

This trailer was custom built to haul my small race cars behind an SUV with a 6500lbs tow rating. Total weight with an Exige loaded could still be towed with a typical 5000lbs tow rated SUV. This trailer tows solid and is large enough to hold many small cars like Honda S2000, Toyota MR2, Mazda Miata, and of course the Lotus Elise/Exige in it. Still, it has a 5000lbs payload and could be used for any number of things while still fitting in many residential garages. Tow sleds, quads, motorcycles, work/landscape equipment, go-kart, etc.

I have hauled my friends Exige in this trailer and depending on your ride height, the drivers door will open right in the escape door as positioned. Very convenient.

Standard features:
- Rubber Torsion axle with EZ lube hubs
- Electric Brakes on both Axles
- (2) 12V dome lights
- Rear ramp with spring assist
- Bonded .030 metal with screwed seam
- Flip-up tongue jack
- All L.E.D. lights
- L.E.D. fuse panel
- Marine-Grade Plywood floor (7-Ply)
- Aluminum cambars on ramp door with grease zerks
- .024 Seamless aluminum roof
- 4 D-Ring tie-downs
- Roof vent
- Stoneguard
- Stainless steel hinges with grease zerks

Options on this trailer include:
- WARN M6000 - 6000lbs winch
- Interstate Deep Cycle battery - charges with vehicle

- 48" extended RV side access door
- 'Escape' door over drivers fender
- 8" ramp door bumpers to load low car (not shown in pics)
- 225 15" tires
- Full size spare tire and external mount

Selling because I have bought a dedicated F350 tow vehicle and am upsizing my car.

$8,000 as is. $7,000 without the winch and battery
