SOLD! 6X12 trailer

Discussion in 'Field Equipment, Trailers, Camping Gear, etc.' started by Wacobipe, Oct 5, 2019.

   
  1. 6 X 12 trailer for sale : fully insulated for heat resistance, this trailer is 6’ inside height and weighs 650-700 lbs. excellent for pulling with car or small truck and the low height reduces drag. It has a minimal impact on fuel efficiency with my car during towing. Can fit 4 giant scale airplanes if a middle shelf is added. Extensive aircraft track tie down system on floor and walls for maximum flexibility. $1,800. Contact Brett Hopkins if interested. Located in Asheville, NC

    It is a bit big for me but I may be interested. Need two dimensions from you one is the height from the dome on top the the ground and the total width of the trailer. Last question is it a steel or aluminum trailer.
     
  3. I am traveling for work this week but will measure and respond this coming weekend.

  4. Hi. Just an update that the trailer has sold.
     
  5. Hi Snoopy,

    I was wrong when I initially listed the trailer for sale. The trailer is actually 5’X10’ and is 5’ height internal. The v-nose is extra length.
    If you are still interested let me know. I can take exact measurements this weekend if you like.

    What a coincidence 5 by 10 trailer is what I was looking for, and it looked like the correct height to fit into my garage. O well missed that one. Could you tell me how you liked the size and how much impact it had on your mileage. And also who was the manufacturer. And is there any particular reason you sold it, was it to small.
     
  8. Hi Snoopy, apologies as I somehow missed your message. The original sale fell through so it is back on the market. I pulled it mostly with a BMW 135 (300hp) and I could not see any notable gas mileage difference...maybe 1-2 mpg at the most. I was between 35-55mph on my travels to and from the field.

    I loved the size and found it perfect for my needs. My planes were between 50-100cc birds and I could fit 4 in with a center shelf (2 on bottom, 2 on shelf).

    It was made by Freedom Trailer trailer out of Georgia in 2014, 3500 lb. max capacity.

    Actual dimensions Internal: 57" wide, 59" high, 119" length at full width plus an additional 22" to the v-nose.
    Max height external is 80" (give or take a couple as the center roof vent is the high point)

    Feel free to call/text me at my cell phone 828-545-3854 if you are interested or have more questions.

    thanks, Brett

    Is it a all aluminum trailer. Or is frame made out of steel.
     
  10. The frame is made out of steel.
