Whats a good size trailer and brand you guys recommend for hauling motorcycles and quads. but at the same time its big and wide enough to fit a mid size care into it.. such as a honda accord...

somebody had told me that car enclosed transports have special door on the side by where the actual car door would be so you can get out after you load them in, but all i have ever seen is the extra wide door up near the front on the right side of trailer.. anyone know about this??

i used an enclosed one before that had about 4 or 5ft at the front still after the car cleared the back. have any idea how long that is??

i was thinkin an 8x14 or 16 ft should be large enough to fit a decent size car in and of course be able to haul bikes.. dual axle of course.


?? thanks for your help guys... thought this might be a good place to ask this..

Check out Carson trailer they should have what you need and they are near you. Just off the 405. I was looking at a 32 footer they had with a camper section up front sleeps six ,kitchen, generator, dining area, A/C, heater, shower and toilet too... only $30,000

They also have shorter trailers that should work for you too, some with the camping options as well... Most of them are great looking rigs.

H&H Trailer makes some excellent quality trailers. Google their name and you can find their website. I personally use their 18' aluminum tilt bed trailer to carry motorcycles, ATVs, a Jeep, and a Dodge Challenger. Here's a photo of the trailer after I installed some D-rings and E-track.

It is a super high quality trailer with absolutely top notch contruction throughout, and the all aluminum construction keeps it lightweight, at just 1500 lbs, despite a cargo capacity of 7000 lbs.

I've used several open trailers and a few enclosed trailers over the years. I have found that the tow vehicle will typically get 3 mpg less with an enclosed trailer due to the increased wind frontage. Being able to lock the doors on an enclosed trailer is nice though.

Be careful on quality with many of the enclosed trailers. It is worth the extra cost to purchase a top brand, and a top of the line model from that brand. I owned Haulmark enclosed trailers, and I would NOT recommend that brand, being as quality was just horrible.
