I have had a few people looking to be able to haul multiple cars. John and Andrew certainly put together a great package with a unique used gooseneck they found. Everything I looked at was either way to heavy or expensive until I cam across the all aluminum Sundowner Extra. The stock interior height is 7 ft. If I were to order one I would probably add 10-12 inches to that. But I have been seeing ones like this 38ft going in the low $40s which seams very reasonable for a base aluminum trailer. Add the 22 ft lift John installed in theirs and you have a 5 car hauler for a tad over $50k and wont need a CDL to run it! I have no experience with Sundowner so if you do please chime in!

Thats a great rig!

A few notes from our searches:
  1. The Lift of Choice Seems to be Stinger Trailer Lifts
  2. The Lower Deck will need to be 35' Long to comfortably fit 3 cars without removing the clams.
  3. The Interior Height needs to be 8' to allow clearance
  4. We easily fill the nose of our trailer with Tools, VP Cans and Gear and No Tires or Wheels. Having (2) cars up and one down would allow for more room.
  5. Our 44' Steel Trailer with (3) Rush Cars, Tools, Spares, (3) Spare Sets of Wheels and Tires, (4) Sets of Tires.... and a 3500 Ram weighs 26,000 on the nose. With GT cars we are nearly 30,000#.
