We are looking for a car hauler, about 16-18' long and as light as possible. If you have one let me know please.

Things we are looking for as far as specs go,

Dual axle
Dual brakes
Break away set up
Can be a open center
2000 or newer
Would love for it to be aluminum depending on price.

Hey Tom. Why no wood? Weight? FWIW, I think most 7000lb wood decked trailers run about 100lb/foot. Are you looking for lighter than that?

The lighter the better. I am towing it with my GMC 1500 gas motor so the weight is a factor. I have seen several wood platform trailers that are in the 16-2000 pound range, not to bad but.......

I looked at a 18 car hauler that was all metal but had a open center section so it saved some weight. The seller thought he had a trailer made of gold as he wanted $3800 for it. Told him I could get an aluminum trailer for that price.

The search continues...........
