Re: What size trailer for a 72

I have a 24' enclosed, a 20' will work but is tight. My 16' with a dovetail open trailer also handles my 72s.

Re: What size trailer for a 72

I bought a brand new 28 foot Intec and I have my 26 foot enclosed trailer for sale. It's a really nice trailer if anyone is interested

Re: What size trailer for a 72

I have a 16 footer...but 18 is a great choice as well

Only one of my vehicles that's ever been on it, was too big/long, which was my tow vehicle when fuel pump died...

Pic showing it hooked to my truck, was my old trailer, also a 16 footer.

My current one has plenty of room for a Chevelle (or Trans Am), winch, and minibike, etc......

Re: What size trailer for a 72

16' is fine. I used one for 7 years. In fact looking at Bob's pictures, mine was the one in Bob's picture hooked to his truck.

Re: What size trailer for a 72

18' would be able to haul just about any car you come across.
