When considering an open car trailer there are a number of things to think about. Most car enthusiasts have experienced the frustrations of using a typical trailer. Hassling with ramps, and struggling to get out of your car can be avoided if you do your homework.
Ramps are a hassle with an open car trailer. They are often heavy, bulking and never long enough to load a low car. An open car trailer by JIMGLO is one way to avoid the hassle of ramps. Using the philosophy of making the most user friendly open car trailer on the planet we created the quickest, simplest loading trailer ever. Check out these videos on youtube to see how simple life can be without ramps.
The struggle to exit your car after loaded onto an open car trailer is usually the next major issue especially if you have an extremely low car. None of us ever want to crawl out our car window again. Having a trailer that has a low profile design will be beneficial, but having removable fenders is going to be a must have feature.
Towing should be easy even if you choose to tow with a light duty truck or SUV. Added weight means more stress on your tow vehicle and of course more fuel stops. An open car trailer built using aircraft grade aluminum will reduce weight and make towing easy. As quoted by Street Rodder Magazine when towing a '31 roadster pickup at highway speeds, we "could barely tell it was there".

Virtually every aluminum car trailer on the market today started off as a cargo trailer, and was adapted by the manufacturer to haul cars. Surprising? It’s true, but there is one company that started with the end in mind, and worked backward to solve the many trailer issues of a car enthusiast.
Let’s start with the most common issues faced by car guys:
First, how do I get out of my car after my car is loaded into the aluminum car trailer? The common answer would be drive your car in and crawl out the window, or try to get out of an escape door that is never in the right place to facilitate an easy exit. An innovative alternative is to have virtually half the side of the enclosed car trailer open up so you can simply step out. Is this possible? It’s very possible when you think outside the box and create a solution that works.
Second, am I stuck tying down my car with 4 D-Rings placed in the 4 corners of the aluminum car trailer? Well, most companies would want you to believe that is the best way to go about it. It’s a fine practice if the status quo works for you. How about a track with rings which are adjustable and can be moved based on the car you are tying down. This makes your car more secure inside your aluminum car trailer.
Third, I have a completely unique show car in which I have invested countless hours of hard work and a stash of cash, why do I have to put it inside a box with wheels? If you are looking for the basic transportation of getting your car from point A to point B, then you are in luck. There are numerous aluminum car trailers to meet your needs. Everything from rivets and glued seams, unattractive wheels and trim make for a very unappealing trailer. Revolutionary new composite construction allows for 1 piece sides, top and floor creating a finished clean skin appearance inside and out. Get as much attention for your trailer as you do from you car.

With the JIMGLO enclosed car hauler it is as simple as driving in and stepping out. Check out one of our YouTube videos to see our trailers in action.
What if you could pull the trailer with a half ton pickup or SUV? Reduced weight would make it easier to tow, which means you could tow it with a half ton pickup or sport utility vehicle.

This has reduced the weight by over 25% compared to our previous models. Weighting in at about 2400 pounds it is now one of the lightest aluminum enclosed trailers in the industry. Request a composite sample to find out for yourself how its possible to reduce the weight yet, make a stronger enclosed car hauler.
What if you could tie down your car without crawling under it? You guessed it, using the latest technology you will never have to crawl under your car to tie it down again. Using the Versa Track Tie-Down System (V-Track), its possible to build your enclosed car hauler to your specifications and use an over the tire strap.

Comparison: Featherlite Trailers vs JIMGLO Trailers
Every car builder chooses very carefully and specifically the parts that will go into their performance or show car. Only the best parts for their baby. Shouldn’t that be the case when choosing an enclosed car trailer? Only one enclosed car trailer is actually built to that high standard. Compare leading trailers and you'll see how JIMGLO outperforms the others, including Featherlite.
The last thing you want to hear is scraping as you load and unload your car, especially loading a long-nose car such as a Viper, Corvette or race car. Car enthusiasts hate that sound. That is why JIMGLO builds their aluminum enclosed trailers with a low to the ground design. Approaching and climbing the ramp is no problem, even the lowest of cars. JIMGLO trailer design is about providing your car the best protection, even when loading and unloading it. You can't do that on a Featherlite Trailers.
STRONG YET LIGHT CONSTRUCTION
JIMGLO uses aircraft-grade aluminum for the frame construction and an extremely strong composite material for the box construction. Both of these materials make a very strong and light trailer. The composite materials allow for an even stronger box (compression rating of over 300 pounds per square inch) and a 25% lighter trailer (about 2,400 pounds). The single piece construction results in a smooth skin without seams or rivets that detract from the beauty of an enclosed car trailer. Featherlite also makes their frames out of aluminum, but you won't find the composite box construction like you would with a JIMGLO. In fact, Featherlite's uses sheets of aluminum that are glued, screwed or riveted together.
A comparison among enclosed car trailers is to start at the bottom, the axles. JIMGLO trailers are standard equipped with two 5,200 pound torsion axles. Featherlite's axles are 3,500 pounds for 16' to 20' trailers and 4,800 pounds for 22' to 24' trailers. The difference in the JIMGLO means more available payload for your use and a GVRW of 10,000 pounds. For example, have you ever had an axle fail because you were a few pounds over the axle's rating? It happens. So why not step up to the beefier JIMGLO axles? Don't get stranded in the desert in the middle of June! Featherlite will make you pay extra for what JIMGLO offers standard.
WIDEST FLOOR SPACE BETWEEN THE FENDERS
The space between Featherlite's fenders provides 81 inches of flat floor space. A JIMGLO enclosed car trailer has a full 83 inches between the fenders on the JIMGLO Elite. Those extra inches can make a huge difference when loading and unloading the trailer.
Tie-downs on a Featherlite consist of 4 swivel D-rings in fixed locations on the floor. JIMGLO enclosed car trailers are equipped standard with the Versa-Track tie-down system. The sleek aluminum track is permanently secured to the floor and the stainless steel rings are fully adjustable. That makes it easy to move your tie-down points to the exact position you need to completely secure your car.
The 2 most important factors to reduce sway are:
EASY TO EXIT
JIMGLO trailers have a very unique feature that allows you to simply drive in, swing open the car door and step right out onto the ground. Virtually half the side of the trailer opens up out of the way, and the fender removes. JIMGLO is the only enclosed car trailer that lets you do that. Never again will you have to crawl out the window or the trailer. Not even an option on a Featherlite.
COMPARE THE BENEFITS
It's really difficult to compare JIMGLO enclosed car trailers because they simply aren't like the others. Foremost in user-friendliness has to be the ability to drive in and step out. JIMGLO trailers are lighter and stronger, equipped with better tie-downs, achieves a higher standard payload capacity and exhibits better loading and towing characteristics. All these features make a JIMGLO an awesome value. Check out the loading and unloading video to see how the JIMGLO enclosed car trailers solves trailer complaints.

When it comes to car trailers there are a number of options available on the market today. Everything from a utility trailer designed to haul everything under the sun, to a trailer designed specifically to haul cars. The most common complaints that I hear are the the following: hassles of ramps, getting out of my car once its loaded on the trailer, and the issues of towing a trailer. Lets look at the tilt car trailer that is designed specifically to haul cars and how these complaints have been solved.
Tilt Bed Trailers by JIMGLO are the quickest, simplest loading car trailers on the market today. Simply release one lever, the bed tilts. As you drive on, the bed levels and locks into place. Secure your car and you’re done. A tilt car trailer solves the most common complaints about car trailers. If you have ever loaded a trailer using ramps you know the frustrations. The complaint I hear over and over from car enthusiasts are the hassles of using ramps to load a car. Hassles including the need to jack the front of your trailer up in order to reduce the ramp angle, working to avoid theft and storing them under or within the trailer. The frustrations of using ramps have been eliminated by the tilt car trailer by JIMGLO.
Drive On - Step Out
Another common complaint is not being able to get out of your car once its loaded onto the tilt car trailer. Removable fenders help solve the problem, allowing you to open the door and step out. This problem is really a double edge sword, so to speak. You need to keep the trailer as low to the ground as possible so your low car can load on the trailer without scraping, yet it needs to be high enough to make it possible to open the door over the tires. We have towed this fine line and found the balance that works extremely well for most low cars. If you have special height or clearance requirements, adjustments can be made.
First, using the latest technology and design-know-how we have create the lightest, best built tilt car trailer available. We have re-engineered the ever popular JIMGLO TiltBed using an all aluminum frame, yet retained the most popular features and benefits our "Raving Fans" have come to expect. The trailer weighs in at just over 1200 pounds, which is remarkable for this caliber of trailer.
Secondly, if you have ever loaded a car onto a trailer tied it down, attempted to tow it at highway speeds only to realize the car needs to be moved forward or backward in order to tow properly, you are not alone. This is another frustration we have worked to eliminate. Not all trailers are created equal and not all trailers are designed to haul cars. The extremely well designed tilt car trailer has been designed just for the purpose of hauling cars. We have taken the guess work out of the car placement on the trailer for optimal towing. How is that possible, its simple really, once the bed tilts and locks into place drive forward about 6 inches and tie the car down. If you follow this rule of thumb your trailer will be perfectly balanced with just the right amount of tongue weight and optimal performance. Even Street Rodder Magazine made mention of it in an article featuring JIMGLO Trailers. Check out what they had to say.
