I have a 2018, 24' enclosed trailer which is plenty for my Chevelle (but I don't have a golf cart) Maybe you'd need a 26' or a 28'?

Hey thanks, I'm curious how you get the straps on the front of car. I've never paid attention while at the track, but I know it's really tight.

Depends. A '64 is just a touch over 12" long, while a '72 is just shy of 17". You'll likely want at least a 1' foot buffer between the front wall of the trailer and between the golf cart and the rear bumper. There's 19' - 20' right there plus probably 6' or 8' more for a golf cart. You're gonna need a big trailer.

Sounds like 28' is what I need. Thanks guys!

30-32 if you want a bench in the front imho. I've seen a 26' but the cart had to be slid in sideways in the back, not a one person job and always in the way.
