here is another picture -

I WILL find better ones !!

This one was taken after our track event at Gingerman.

Tim installed a bulkhead on the front of it to protect the car during travel.

We also bolted a toolbox onto the front of it to haul supplies with.

It is quite a trailer!!


the whole trailer tilts back so that the car can drive right up onto it instead of onto ramps.

It is a very quick process !!

A very pleasureable trailer to work with...

How much for that Texas roll back trailer? And what makes a Texas roll back trailer a Texas roll back trailer? Does it have brakes? If so, electric or surge? Will it carry a Cobra?

to add to the brake question, the only other ones I have are aprox how many miles on it and how much dough?

-----------yes !! It will definitely carry a Cobra !! Ours are both lowered. The sides come off quite easily - so that if you do have a lowered vehicle, you can get in and out with no problem.

Look below -
for a better description!

------------

I would say approximately 4000 miles. It sits all winter long, we only use it for car shows/events, and to haul Trigger up to Victor Ford a few times a year.

That there's a right purty trailer, Missy. :bounce:

Does it slide back and forth and tilt via electric or manual operation? Winches?

It really looks like a killer setup, I've never seen one like it. Please explain the operation.

Thanks for the great pictures Bonny. We sure did have fun traveling down south. I sure do miss that car. :(

Tom,
It's all manual. There are a couple of pins on each side of the trailer that keep the axle assembly and the top deck connected. When you pull the pins, this allows the top deck to slide on the axle assembly. Block the wheels, pull the pins and then back the truck which also backs the top deck down. The deck slides down till the rear is resting on the ground. Now you are ready to pull the car on the trailer. It's really easy and there is no scraping while driving up on it. Once the car is on it, you can pull the truck forward which brings the deck and car right up into pulling position. Put the pins back on, strap the car down and unblock the wheels and you're ready to go.

Notice the location of the wheels compared to the deck in several of the pictures.

It's the slickest open trailer that I've ever seen. I've also pulled this trailer and it is very stable.

Dean, thanks for explanation. I didn't realize the hitch is attached to the deck. That's much simpler than the contraptions I was envisioning. (DUH!) It all makes perfect sense now.

I think they may have bought out this trailer from "Big Tex" cuz it is the same trailer

Two things with this trailer -

it is a little bit heavier than your average open car hauler.
We had an F250 Diesel power stroke which hauled it up and down the mountains like it wasn't even there ..

However, at this time we are using our Expedition and have to go a little bit slower ... It does the job o.k. - it does have all the options. However,
eventually, we are going for another F250 Diesel - !!

Also - with the bulkhead on - we have a mark (for the Cobra's) where to STOP !!

It's much easier if someone is signaling you -
however, Tim has done it several times by himself with no problems.

So far - the front bumpers haven't been bumped. You could also put a block on there as a "stop" if you need to.

If we do sell this trailer -
we will be happy to show you how to use it !!

What is her name?

give her this for the weekend (from you):

You're such a wonderful friend,
a blessing so special and rare.
To have a friend like you
is an answer to a prayer.

So this brings the most loving thank you
for all of your warm, caring ways,
And hopes God will bless you forever
