I sold a 30' due to it was just to heavy and more than I needed. My old trailer was a fully loaded extremely nice rig. Im now in the market for a smaller/less options/cheaper trailer. I have been told that my 88gt and golf cart should fit snuggly but fit in a 24' trailer. I have noticed in my area there are more 24' for sale than 26/28'. Was just curious what everyone here has. Im aware of companys like proline and look that sell new 28' for 5000.00 but I do want something a little better built than that.

I just picked up a 24' enclosed. I haven't put the car in the trailer yet but I think it would be tight with a golf cart and car, although it should make it. Easy way would be to measure the cart and car and then just do the math

Does your 24' have cabinets? Ive done the math and it comes up with a few ft to spare. But I know my 30' had cabinets up front so that made 28' of actual floor space. 69 Camaro, and golf cart when it with some room to spare but just didn't seem like 4'.

I have a 24' Cargo Mate triple axle combo. My 89 Saleen fits nicely and there is room for a golf cart, but no room for cabinets and a cart. I don't have a golf cart, so I have lots of room for winch, toolboxes, pit bike, fuel, EZ-up canopies, 2 100 qrt ice chests ect.

I have wall mounted cabinets at the front of the trailer. Nothing on the floor.

Ive found a couple decent deals close to home but they seem to all be 24'. a 28' seems your as well off buying a brand new one. Im thinking I can make a 24' work, im just going to have to Be careful of toolbox placement,generator,air comp and so on.

Let me guess...48ft double decker,with 2-3 spares of everything? We just throw a pit bike in the front of a 24' & run the air comp./spare N2O bottle,etc. To the lanes. We usually throw a small 125cc 4-wheeler in the bed of truck..if we break & need to tow back to the trailer. A 22-24' fills up fast. Winch mounted low,in the front of trailer..to pull it back in if we break it good:smile2:

Yes that would work, but one of the tracks we frequently race at the entire pits is on a hillside kinda. its paved but not very flat so to get golf cart out I would have to unhook trailer, unload cart, re hook trailer, go park in pits, then at end of night reverse that entire order.

I don't tow a foxbody in mine but I do tow a Maverick, which might be a little longer. I have to take the deck lid/spoiler off of the car in order to fit the Yamaha G1A in the trailer with the car; and even then it's TIGHT. 24' Pace. Between the cart, car, and the rest of the junk I take to the track, a 3/4 ton truck is mandatory, 1 ton better. I pulled that rig for a while with a 2003 Lightning and while it had plenty of power, it DRINKS the gas (7.1 mpg average), and it was way too much weight for the truck to stop and handle. When an 18 wheeler passes you at mach 2.2, it was really hard to control the trailer/truck. I traded the Lightning for a 2003 F250 4x4 and it pulls MUCH better.

As well, I have since sold the golf cart and bought a Zuma scooter for a pit bike. Now I have a little extra room in the front for a toolbox and some other junk, compressor, jack, stands, microwave, etc. The scooter is a LOT easier to load by myself.

Would a 26' interest you any? That'd give you an extra 2 foot.

I picked up a 24' V-nose Bendron in April 2014 and then built cabinets in nose. Finished walls and floor. Still need to do ceiling and add lighting. Still left me 23'-9" of floor space keeping everything in nose. V-nose was little over 31" deep. With my Mustang in place. I have about 7ft (85") between front bumper and cabinets. May not be best trailer but I have very few complaints. I could have easily gotten away with a 20ft v-nose and only lost 4ft of open floor space.

Started with this



So far... Upper is 2ft from counter top, set 1ft back. Counter top is 2ft deep in center, 3/4" oak plywood with stainless cap. Made everything myself including doors.
