Wanted to start a post that isn't as much a commercial as a true discussion about car haulers and trailers. I know many on the site maybe in my situation that have some experience with trailers, but could use more from the trailering veterans on the site.
Open vs. enclosed, applications, wheel/tire size, tilt versus non tilt, steel versus aluminum, etc.
Aluminum versus Steel
Besides the obvious weight savings as an advantage, what are the disadvantages of aluminum trailer besides obvious cost?
Tilt versus non-tilt
What are the advantages and dis-advantages of tilt trailers - what do most prefer? How do you install a wench on a tilt model for a disabled car?
Are most OK with 14" wheel/tire packages, should we go with 15" for availability of tires? Thoughts on this?
My principal question I have now is length of a trailer for a late model mustang - was thinking 18 foot, but should I go longer?
Please add any other thoughts or wisdom you may have to help us and those who have specific trailer questions - here is your post to respond and ask. ( I prefer not to get into a brand discussion here, but prefer more info about use and experience with functions we should look for in a trailer. Ok to mention some brand info, just avoid the advertising if possible.)
