1 Replies and 1564 Views Towing with an Acura MDX (2011) looking for feedback  1564  1 Started by  danderso I have a 2011 Acura MDX. I am thinking of having the OEM tow hitch package added to it so that I can start towing a Mini Cooper (2750 lbs). Looking for any experiences others have with this vehicle in a towing situation. The SUV is rated for 5000 lbs. and if I figure a 1800lb trailer as a rough guesstimate I'll be pushing 4500 lbs before passengers and anything extra. ThoughtsDavid

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
My original flat-bed trailer was stolen back in early June. Had a chance to tow with a slider to nats. Loved the ease of loading and unloading. But I have found some really good deals on enclosed trailers lately. What should I look for in the way of features, dimensions, etc. I have the proper truck to tow one of those behemoths. Any other disadvantages to owning an enclosed trailer. Basically just looking for advice. I am completely clueless in this arena. Also, I have a budget of around...

1 Replies and 431 Views Type of coating for floor of trailer  431  1 Started by  Austin I am planning to make my trailer a little nicer inside, and make it easier to clean-up if the car develops a drip or I spill something.  I have an enclosed trailer, all wood inside (no cool aluminum trailer here!) with wooden floors.  The floor has an oil stain on it already, about 1 sq. ft. and I would like to paint the floor with some type of coating that will protect it from any further fluid spills, as well as make it look a little nicer inside.  I am not looking to do anythin...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Looking at new aluminum trailers to tow the Vette. Probably towing about 5-7k miles per year, so I'm thinking its time to upgrade to something a bit lighter. The old steel trailer has been great, but the time to move on has come. (Yup, it's for sale!) Anyone here have any experience with more than one manufacturer as far as these trailers are concerned Looking at 18' or so, open trailer low enough to load a C5 without too much difficulty. If anyone has had a particularly great, or terrible ...

2 Replies and 1251 Views Tilt Aluminum Trailer Advice  1251  2 Started by  drsrock I am in the market for an open tilt trailer. Looking at Aluma 8218T and Featherlight 3110 and ATC tilt. I will be using it for my race cars which are low to begin with and have a large splitters to boot. My back is bad, and I am not dealing with ramps ever again. If you have experience loading low clearance cars onto any of these please let me know. Any other insight and pricing would be helpful. Thanks

0 Replies and 1565 Views What do you look for in a trailer enclosure?  1565  0 Started by  SnoCaps Trailer Enclosures Hello everyone!  Our company has been making soft sided trailer enclosures for the last 23 odd years. Our original target market was snowmobilers that didn't want a traditional enclosed trailer for various reasons, mostly trailer weight or cost. We've also done quite a few custom enclosures for various applications, from airplanes to loadbank trailers. We've made a good number throughout the years, however recently we have begun receiving significantly more interest from the car-hauler mar...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
Well, its that time again.  Every 3-4 yrs I change out tires on my enclosed car trailer, and the perplexing choice of tire brands comes up again.  I've read so many different reviews, various forums, and again my head just spins.  I guess with enough opinions, can find whatever answer you want.  I have used the U.S. made Goodyear Marathons in past (with good results), the China made Marathons (didn't know when I bought them, less positive results), Carlisle  tires (seeme...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 ... 4 )
I'd love to hear some feedback on this one. If it can tow with ease (rated 5000), it could be a perfect multipurpose vehicle. Could double as a good daily driver/winter vehicle and great gas milage compared to a full size van/truck.

7 Replies and 5357 Views Expedition transmission issues - calling Steve H!  5357  7 Started by  bfetch Yo!  Steve H!   I hope you don't mind me picking your brain. '05 Expedition, 5.4L, 128k, trailer-tow package. When driving (trailering/loaded or unloaded), uphill, the vehicle does not maintain speed. It continues to slow while I add more throttle, until it slows to around 40-45MPH when it finally downshifts. I can press the accelerator down faster (before it reaches 'degraded velocity'), in an effort to get it to downshift, but it doesn't seem to be the right answer for this...
