I want a trailer to haul the turbo and keep it secure. I have an open trailer I have used, but its only 77 inches wide between the rails and with paddles, it's not wide enough. I plan to get a 8'6" wide unit 16ft long. Also going tall with at least a 78" tall door. Current front runner is a Interstate LoadRunner. Size is perfect. Not a lot of 8.5 by 16-18 with the taller door available near me. Not much used either so shopping new. I could order a Wells Cargo but 6-8 weeks for delivery. What are you using and any advice?
If you can go bigger do it. Itís like a garage/shop. Youíll want bigger. I ended up getting 20í plus the ďVĒ, 8.5í wide and also increased my height to 7.5í. The height was overkill but I didnít want to worry about anything once I add interior lights to the trailer and to the RZR. The axles I upgraded to 5200lbs. It was again overkill but I plan on doing home moves with this thing loaded down. If nothing else it will help the hubs last longer due to less stress. Had an additional roof vent put in to help with ventilation and get more natural light.
As for where to buy...South GA has a LOT of enclosed trailer manufacturers. I drove a long way to them. I got a completely custom trailer built the way I wanted it in 10 days. They have great prices due to all the competition and it being straight to public pricing, no dealer middle man.
More details than what you asked for but wanted you to know what could be had if you are in a position to road trip to GA.
I ended up going with WOW Trailers. There are others though. Not sure what your expectations are though. Iíd consider my quality/finishes a work trailer. It has plywood walls with just one light that works with power from the truck. Some of the seams donít match up perfect. I was ok with this due to me finishing it out myself. If you are expecting race trailer quality with higher end finishes, smooth skinned interior, lots of lights, power package then make sure you compare and look around. Donít get me wrong they have those also. They had a race trailer there that was nice and the price was within reach but it didnít have the extra height that I wanted.
The different manufacturers use different structural components. Some use hat channel or Zbar others use tube steel. There was another company that I was going to use but when I called (three different times) each of the sales people had an attitude that I just couldnít stand. They used a little bit better floor and roof structure but not enough to deal with their attitudes.
I'd go taller, mine sits at 75-76" and my toyhauler door is 78", just clears. If I ever go with bigger tires might be screwed. Also I tie down with tire bonnets so the suspension works inside, ceiling is 82" I think, so never had any issues with it hitting.
