Where can I get one of these low haulers?

Very nice R/T. That's exactly what I'm looking for, and at a great price too.
It's a V-nose right?

it's a slight v nose built here in Michigan by nashcar trailers.
the nice thing is the torsion axle doesn't bounce around .
I get 12 mpg if I drive 65-70.....if I try and push it 77-79 it only gets 9 wont stay in overdrive in tow haul but it's a half ton 5.3l with almost 250,000 miles
truck gets 16 mpg with no trailer

We got a little 14' enclosed trailer for our bikes. The whole back side lowers and doubles as a ramp. I installed rings on the floor for the bikes to be strapped to and screwed a couple of those cheapo plastic wheel chocks down to locate the front tire of each to make sure we get them in the right place every time. I want to install some shelves and maybe a box to put all our gear in. Just haven't got around to it. Saving for our first track day next Summer as I type this.

ANY fool can go fast in a straight line!

Oh man. That's a nice trailer setup. If you get one stealth you should put in a sleeping berth for naps between sessions.
