Open Car Trailer for Low Cars

that is simple to load without using ramps

Loading a low car onto an open car trailer can often be a headache. All too often you need long ramps (that are usually heavy and difficult to maneuver) plus you will need to jack the front of the trailer up to improve the approach angle. Sometimes that is not even enough and you need extra blocks of wood to get your low car on the trailer. Back in 1988, Jimmy, our founder had the same challenges with loading his low car on his car trailer. The car was a 1969 Camaro Drag Car that was 2” off the ground. He was fed up and decided to create an open car hauler that was simple to load without using ramps. Out of necessity the JIMGLO Ego was born, and years later the main concept still remains the same….simple and easy to load your low car onto an open car trailer. Read the JIMGLO Story to learn more.

Check out this video to see the JIMGLO Ego in action.


“Don't Hassle with Ramps”

The need for ramps is eliminated with the JIMGLO Ego.  The aluminum open car trailer operates on a 2 frame system, the bed frame and the chassis frame.  The frames operate in unison but separate from one another.  Loading your low car onto aluminum open car trailer is made easy with the extra-low ramp angle allowing clearance for the lowest of cars.


“Couldn't Be Any Easier To Load”

Quickest, simplest loading open car trailer ever!  Simply release one lever, the bed tilts and you are ready to load.  As you drive on the bed levels and locks into place.  Secure your car and you’re done. In the words of Street Rodder Magazine, the JIMGLO Ego Open Car Trailer “couldn’t be any easier to load”.

It’s simple to operate because there are very few moving parts. The tilt system is basically one pipe inside another pipe, along with a set of hydraulic shocks that slow the tilting bed as you drive on. There is NO need to rely on a battery, winch, and cables to raise and lower your trailer….or an electric motor to drive a hydraulic ram. The JIMGLO Ego is quick and simple to load your low car. 



“Never Crawl Out Your Car Window, Again!”

Once your low car in loaded onto the trailer, it is often a challenge to get out of the car. Easy exit means no more climbing out your car window.  Removable fenders are a standard feature which makes it easy to open your door and step out of your car.

It’s well made, lightweight, wide enough for a Corvette, you don’t need ramps and it pulls like a dream.
— Wayne O - Corvette Forums

I've owned a JIMGLO tiltbed open car trailer for years (my good friend owns an older version of the same trailer). I like it's well made, lightweight, wide enough for a Corvette, you don't need ramps and it pulls like a dream. I opted for the tall utility box on the front which acts as a protective screen for the car. This open car trailer isn't cheap to begin with and I think some of JIMGLO's options are extremely overpriced. Fortunately, things like the winch (if you want one) isn't hard to add yourself. Just order the winch stand from JIMGLO but get the winch yourself elsewhere (FWIW I've never needed the winch). I see all kinds of trailers at the track.....FeatherLite makes a nice single auto trailer but I like the JIMGLO tiltbed open car trailer better! I'm happy with mine. 


If you are planning to keep this trailer a long time, you owe it to yourself to consider a JIMGLO Trailer. Check them out at I had a JIMGLO TiltBed open car trailer for about 5 years and recently purchased an enclosed JIMGLO. Having used several different brands of trailers over the past 30+ years, the JIMGLO's (IMHO) are the best engineered and built trailers on the market. They tow great, are very easy to load with a low car, look great, and are more aerodynamic than most others. You can even drive your car in and open the driver's door all the way to get out of the car (try that with some of the other brands of trailers).

BTW, I have no affiliation, just a satisfied customer. Give them a call, you will find they are very down to earth, honest, straight-forward people to deal with. 

If you do get an open ca trailer, it won't be long before you start looking for an enclosed one. If you go anywhere overnight, you will want the security of the enclosed trailer.

If you are planning to keep this trailer a long time, you owe it to yourself to consider a JIMGLO Trailer.

It’s the 4th trailer I’ve owned, and it’ll be the last I’ll ever need.

I agree with Weasel, I've got a JIMGLO Trailer, it's the 4th trailer I've owned, and it'll be the last I'll ever need. I love the tilt bed! no ramps to fool with, easy to load and unload.  Both fenders are removable.  I've got a winch to pull up the non-ops, and unload anything. I haven't had anything on it yet that I can't open the door on (some had to take fender off). I found mine used, but looked a llooooooonnnnggggg time to find it. You just don't see many people getting rid of them, and I agree, it's because they are great.
I didn't care for the "surge" brakes, I switched over to all electric. Unlike others, I check my tire pressure before any trip, and haven't blown a tire yet (but will someday).  JIMGLO is out of Willcox, AZ.
