If your hobby is cars, you know how expensive it can be to purchase and maintain classic good-looking cars. Whether it’s paying for maintenance and transportation of your car when it’s not being driven, you spare no expense. Purchasing a quality car hauler is an important part of caring for your car.

When you’re trying to find the best car hauler, there are a few factors to consider. 

Open vs Enclosed

Deciding between an open or enclosed trailer is one of the major factors to consider. Enclosed trailers are considered the best option by most people because they are full-coverage from weather conditions and can be used as permanent storage. In addition, your car is protected from potential road hazards during transportation. Typically, enclosed trailers are chosen by people who plan to travel long distances or special automotive events.

While there are so many benefits to enclosed trailers, open car haulers are still a good option. They are less expensive than enclosed trailers and some manufacturers offer great features that make the loading and unloading process a breeze.

Best Size

The best car hauler size depends entirely on your budget, the size of your car or cars, and how many cars you need to haul at once. There are a variety of car haulers available in sizes that go up to as much as 8 and a half feet wide and 70 feet long. Keep in mind, the bigger a trailer, the harder its maneuverability. The most desirable option is to find a car hauler that fits all your cars without sacrificing ease of use. One of the better options for a car hauler currently is the Warrior Drop Deck Car Hauler by Primo Trailers that measures 6 and half feet wide by 20 feet long. When looking for a quality car hauler, consider these factors. 

Trailer Weight

The weight of your car hauler determines the size of the tow vehicle and the payload it can carry. In addition, the weight of your show car will factor into the trailer weight. Older, classic cars tend to be heavier than modern cars or even race cars. Knowing how much your car or cars weigh is incredibly important when deciding on the best trailer weight and towing capacities. 


Most car haulers on the market today are made from steel, aluminum, or wood. Most often buyers are choosing between steel or aluminum car haulers. Both options are sturdy and more resistant to damage to your trailer. Between aluminum and steel, aluminum is usually considered the better option. Although it is more expensive than steel, it is corrosion and rust resistant, meaning you’ll save money on touch up damage in the long run. In addition, it is a more light weight material which makes it more desirable for towing. That said, steel trailers are still very durable and a great choice also.
