Anyone know what size enclosed car hauler I should get to transport my Betsy (1926 Model T) in. She deserves a nice ride vice on my open trailer when I have to haul her long distances... Thanks

I have a 8.5'X16' enclosed, 80 inches inside the rear door. Just about perfect for our '27 Fordor.

Ed, is that 80 inch in height! Everyone I am seeing is 74 which is not high enough.

Nice car Chuck!! We bought a 8.5 x 18 foot but do not buy a trailer for only model T's.Bud.

Chuck - Not to speak for Ed, but I believe that he meant exactly what he said,....."80 inches inside the rear door".

And this might be a good place to "vent" some frustration that I have in regard to enclosed trailer dealers/manufacturers brouchures; they always tell you the "inside height" dimensions, which is absolutely MEANINGLESS if you can't get your car through the doorway!

The doorway height is ALWAYS the limiting factor in determining whether or not you can get your car in the trailer, and if it won't fit through the doorway, it doesn't make a darned bit of difference if the inside height of the trailer is 12' or 14' feet high! And very seldom do they tell you the doorway height!

Okay,....there! Now I feel better,........harold

Yep, 80 inches rear door height. Sorry about the delay, I had to go back to work for a couple hours. Lol

Our trailer is a bit of an oddball. They don't build the "Mighty Mover" brand any longer. I scanned Craigslist multiple times a day for three months, and jumped on this 2007 unit, fresh from California. Couldn't have swung the deal without the help of a special friend.

We just bought a 8.5 by 20ft but the 24 was only a $200 more dollars but we use a 1/2 ton truck and that is all I want to pull. We only bought the additional length because we have a 70 mach1 and plan to take it to some of the cruises like Woodward. For now it's a great place for my model a or t. Looks like the A is going to the first fall show in it next month @ Pigeon forge Tn. Tim
