32' trailer with 2 cars

First Its not me building second car,so no need to tell me to get mine to track first.

Have a friend with strong itch to build a left hand steer roadster. Mainly for bracket racing and possibly national event stuff. He was asking me about my trailer deal and thinking out loud about feasibility of his building car and then being in boat I am in. Have car and no trailer yet. Long story shortened, He asked how possible it would be to haul both cars in trailer I am starting. Told him should work on paper,but not always end result.
Question any reason a dragster(225" Fed,allow for change) and left hand steer roadster wouldn't be fairly easy fit in 32'x8.5' x 7' trailer. L shaped cabinets where plan,lot to figure on L or just across front. SO 30'x 8.5' floor. Fed is about 275 back to front. Figure to build lift for nose and a support for middle for fed. Park roadster under it. Roadster will be 120" or so wheel base,30" nose and maybe 24" behind reaR AXLE centerline. On paper looks like no issue. Just idea right now,like I need another one of those.LMAO

Have hauled 280" TA/D and TA/FC in trailer but was 48' goose neck and 8' ceiling. Oh yea I do gain access to huge shop for trailer build plus bypass buying welder for aluminum(2k savings),although could probably get those anyway. So whats catch I am missing or trouble to head off early.

I had my cabinets all put on the road side wall to open up the floor on my 38' gooseneck with 32' of floor. Gave me room for my race truck and golf cart with room in between them.

Really? Would have never thought that would fit. Sounds like I should have tons of room then.

It's a tight fit but it gets the job done and we own it lol. Bigger trailer means bigger motorhome.

Chris,
If it were me and I was building a new trailer I would go 34 foot, 1 foot extra high.
As you know once it's built it's kind of tough to add on to.

You'll still need to lift the nose BUT not as high.
Not too mention we all like to have a little more room in our trailers. I'm sure you'll be able to find stuff to put in it.
