Project Trailer-All Done and Using It!
We have gotten a few emails asking about the status of Project Trailer and to be honest we had kinda forgotten to write about it in the mad rush that life in our world is about. The truth is that our trailer works quite well and that we are pretty happy about going with a custom trailer built to our specs by Shadow Trailers in Cypress California.
If you have been following our trailer stories, you would know that we were trying to build an open deck trailer that addresses all the shortcomings that we have experienced with our trailers in the past. We wanted to stay open deck because not all of our several tow vehicles around here have enough beans to pull an enclosed trailer.
Shadow is well known for their high quality powersports and personal watercraft trailers but they wanted to show that they can build excellent car haulers as well. After owning and breaking a couple of cheaper trailers, we can tell that the Shadow trailer will last a lifetime without much maintenance.
On our trailer, our ramps are hidden in the back under the deck behind this flap door. To use the ramps, just open the door, pull them straight out and hook them up to the rail on the rear of the frame. Super quick and easy on the back. Our ramps are extra long as well.
