Default What brand trailer ?

Anybody know what brand trailer this is?
Can anyone tell me how long the trailer is by looking at the pic?
Not my car but I like the way the car looks on the trailer with all the room to move the car exactly how you want it...

Thanks

No idea on brand.... but would guess its a 18'-20'er ?

I bought mine and had it mod'ed to my specs from the Mfg. due to having an HOA and needed to keep in the garage.
My rear tires are about the same spot as the above pic (top of the dovetail) with some room to spare in front where I added a winch (for the just in case). Tows great (little too far forward here)

F body is ~ 16' so that trailer is probably a 20'

Doug.... that's a nice set up you have there. Only problem I see is I THINK a first gen is shorter than a fourth gen. I'm not 100 percent sure but I think so.

Yes, a little bit....but I don't have that long nose. Also, like I said, mine was modified from the factory and from the tail to the coupler it's 19' (14'deck + 2' dovetail--16' O/A deck)


67-69 wheelbase 108".....O/A......185"
2000 wheelbase 101.1"...O/A.... 193.2"
2015 wheelbase 112.3"...O/A..... 191"-193"

Your best bet is to try one out at a local dealer or measure....but think a 18-20 with a 2' dovetail will work nice. (18' will have a 16' deck and a 20 would be 18' deck) Longer trailers are nice, but turn radius sucks.
Also, you have to watch tongue weight, too much or too little can cause issues like swaying, and other handling problems.

Very helpful info and very interesting. I heard both good and bad about short trailers and long trailers. I heard at highway speeds the longer trailers don't bounce around like short trailers. I'm not sure yet on what length I really want.. hell i just found a truck that I'll like to get for towing but it's too far away. Only if it was closer to me
