    Default Enclosed race trailers with dolly trailer

    Thinking about buying one. Do's and dont's. What size for a 19 cp jet boat. I was thinking a 24' ft with a v nose. Or would you guys think a 26' would be better. Did you buy to small and wish you had an extra 2'. Have one full dressed out inside or just do the plain wood and up grade later? Would be doing double duty for a sand car and a couple Quads. Just thinking and looking for opinions. Some good deals right now. Will be pulling it behind my 26' RV.
    Who is doing conversions with the dolly trailers? Or are we just getting rid of the road trailers and having a new dolly made.

    my dad puts his 18' cp in a 28' trailer with id say 3 ft to spare, but theres also cabinets in the front

    its nice to have because u always have everything you need and can leave it all bundled up inside between races, but there is still definitely some more work involved

    Get one that you can get a golf cart into if possible, you will thank yourself down the road.

    The golf cart and a big quad to put the boat in and out of the water.

    I always thought it would be cool to have a trailer so you could haul your trailer.

    Depends on how much stuff besides the boat you wanna bring. A 28' and up is a pretty big trailer. We raced out of one for many years. We're not in the process of downsizing a bit so I can tow it with my camper. A 28' should cover boat and a quad pretty easy. We had a bunch of room left over. A 20' will basically just fit the boat with a bit of room for tools and an ice chest (of course that's about all you need!!). With the smaller trailers watch the pay load. Sometimes they put 3500 lb axles which don't leave much payload capacity after you subtract the trailer weight.
    Tony Leamann can do the coversion if you're in the San Jose area. He helped me with mine and it turned out puss. Though he's mosty know for the round tube trailers, he can also build you whatever you want.

    I have a 24' Carson trailer , it carries my 19 socal- performance stealth ( TPR ) and everything you need to race. But i wish I still had my 30' trailer. Also mike peasley does excellent work on dolly trailers ( 760 ) 900-3868. If you decide you want a 24' trailer give me A call bob 714 615-0644 I wouldn't mind going bigger.

    Mine is a Pace American 26 with 2' deep front cabinets. With the boat being about 22' I have about 2 more feet to move around with the boat in the trailer. The extra height of mine is awesome. Leave a enough room up front to get around and do basic stuff. If you are planning to put a golf cart in as well, I'd suggest 5200lb axles minimum if not more likely the 6000 lbs axles. I know my rig weighs very close to the 10K gvwr. I know that my friends rig 28' trailer with a cart and daytona and cabinets weights over 12k. All that stuff adds up in a hurry. I didn't realize just how much it weighs until it went on a scale. 3500lbs axles aren't going to cut it.

    I started out with a 22' where the boat barely fit in without anything else. I worked but I jumped at a chance to get a bigger trailer when one came along.
    If I were you i'd get a 28 or a 30, and get the extra height version. You can find them on CL if you spend enough time looking, new prices are typically quite expensive.

    Another thing to consider is the tow capacity of the rv. Enclosed trailers are awfully nice.
