View Full Version : H & H Trailers - Opinion please!

05-28-2003, 10:13 AM
Been shopping for an 18 ft open trailer and the H & H tilt-beds look very nice. BUT, how well do they work? Is it dificult to load? Wood deck vs steel deck? Problems with the hydraulics? Will I be able to load my lowered 95 R without too much scrapping? Does it "tow" well? Thanks in advance and I appreciate your feedback!

Don't know anything about the H&H trailer, but I would recommend a wood floor as opposed to steel. Unless the steel has something added for traction, it may be interesting getting a car up a wet steel deck.

A slippery deck is one of my concerns with the wood deck also. Guess any deck is going to be slippery when wet! Thanks for your .02

Generally speaking trailer decks use a rough cut lumber so there is a decent amount of traction.
My comment was directed twards some trailers I have seen that use smooth metal floors and are painted. Makes for a slippery setup whn wet.
Good luck on whatever you decide. :thumbsup:

My trailer is an open deck with the 'diamond plate' metal deck on it. I haven't had any problems getting my car on and off of it. I would personally recommend an open deck b/c you can get under it and work on the car if needed.

I have exactly the trailer you speak of.. 18ft and wood floor tilt bed. Works very well, the hydraulics are just a glorified floor jack type cylinder, very simple. No problems getting the car up on the wet either, I tow my z06 with it.

Paid about $2400 with dot light package and extra axle brakes.
