Thanks to MightyBirdF145 and Ron Ciglar Not worthy who have been instrumental in my specing this custom trailer.

Also thanks to Bryan Keller, KB Trailer Sales, great customer service and pricing.

It's a shame to cover up all that pretty aluminum.

7'-6" and a lot $ but less than the comparable T&E or Goldrush.

This trailer's configuration is custom and not something you would find on any dealer's lot including intech dealers.

Always exciting a new build and I'm sure with the customization to make it what you want. Best of luck with it and thanks for sharing the pics. Did you run with the extruded aluminum floor? Insulation?

Hard to tell in the pictures, are the floor crossmembers 16" OC?

I do like how the roof is bowed up in the center, that's a great idea.

got it.

I just bought a new travel trailer and that's what they are doing as well. I know the TT industry is doing it to increase head room with a larger curve.

yes, notice that the wall framing, 16" centers sits on the floor cross members.

Walls, ceiling and floor is framed on 16" centers...

The reason I asked is that I've seen more than one trailer with the extruded floor with ditches/indentations where the rear tires of a dragster sit after a couple years of use, the aluminum stretches. I would keep that in mind when positioning your car in the trailer. Maybe put the slicks right on top of a cross member.

Looks like a great start. Love InTechs trailers and they are on my short list for my next one too. Will be looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Car locations are already set, can't say if the tires are centered on a cross member but with 16" centers, I'm not worried about it.

Here's my floor tie down/anchor points...
