WTB - Enclosed car hauler trailer with MINIMUM of one foot extra height. Would consider new or used, depending on price. Must have MINIMUM of 84" height clearance thru' rear door.
Please respond via PM
Used trailers are a crap shoot.
Unless someone has a trailer less than a year old with little use - you are buying a potential project.
Better to go with a new custom built trailer.
Find a manufacturer you like - check stock on dealers within a reasonable driving distance of where you live.
Sometimes they have closeouts or custom orders that were never paid for sitting on their lot and will cut you a deal.
Good Luck !

I suspect you want a rear door height of "84" to clear top of a Model T without putting the top down. Making the door super tall like that makes the trailer also super tall and creates a lot of wind resistance when towing and that much height at the door is NOT needed. Take some paper and make a scale side silhouette of your T and move that silhouette up a ramp drawn accurately on a paper and you will notice that as the T goes up the ramp the T "ducks down" because as front wheels go into the trailer with back wheels still on the ramp, the Center of the T is way lower until the back wheels get to the top of the ramp and by then the top is completely inside the trailer. What you really need is simply ONE EXTRA FOOT of height on a standard enclosed trailer. Find someone who has such a trailer and ask them to let you drive into it with your T and you will see exactly what I mean. The only caveat in this is the assumption that the trailer and ramp are both setting on a reasonably flat surface and that the ramp is NOT downhill into the trailer but is in fact uphill. The tallest part of your T is in about the middle point of the running boards or slightly further back. I have a Delivery Car that has a very tall center and it goes into my "one foot taller" trailer with ease. Just make sure the torsion bar and spring are above the door opening and don't hang down into the doorway which they never do on a typical car hauler trailer made by Haulmark, Wells Cargo...etc
Harold, I found this on CL...
A 42 year old wood framed trailer that looks like someone added metal supports for structural support and cross chains at the rear to keep it square ?
That thing should not be allowed on the road ....
I see that the top on your car cannot be lowered. I just bought a LOOK (brand name) trailer a lot like you are after. The one I bought is 8.5' X 20'. Inside height is 84 inches. GVWR ~9900. I bought mine in Montana but I'm sure there are Washington state dealers. Hope this helps.
