FOR YOUR CAR, I WOULD STAY WITH THE 18 FOOTER, CAUSE IF YOU HAVE EVER TOWED WTH UHAUL, YOU WOULD NOW THE EXTRA 2 FEET, AND WEIGHT IS IMPORTANT. MAYBE EVEN A 20 FOOTER

SO DONT TRUST 16FT TRAILERS ON LONG TRIPS?
It all depend on what size is your car.I pulled gbodies on uhaul triler and drives good.but when it come to a caddy or a chevy I would go with a longer trailer.and always put the most weight toward the hitch.the more weight you put on the end the more it would swerve.

SO GBODYS ON 16 OR OR ANYTHING ELSE ON A 16 WOULD BE GOOD FOR INTOWN? 18-20 FOR LACS N CHEVY TYPE CARS

True, I've owned my 20ft. trailer for 13 years to tow my Caddy. And when it comes to towing a show car safe,don't go out cheap.

I agree with Homer..I bought a standard car hauler w/ dovetail from Carson for $1500 brand new last year. Towed a 62 4door Impala from LA to Vegas..Truck sucked as it is the 4.8L motor in my Silverado 1500 (slow in mountain), but the trailer never swayed one bit...Did like 70mph on the straight aways with no issue. This is what it looks like. Are you using a receiver or is the ball on the bumper??

and if you can get load levelers I would do it. I towed all the way from chicago to florida with the load levelers and it was like the car was not even there

THAT IS TRUE. HONESTLY, I GOT A 22 FOOTER, BUT HAVE USED 18 FOOTERS MOSTLY. SHIT 85 MPH ALL DAY WITH MY 22 FOOTER. I FORGET IT IS BACK THERE SOMETIMES.

18footer is the way to gohave towed from Seattle to San Francisco and back, Seattle to Vegas and back a couple times and had no issues what so ever and did 90mph at times.... don't forget to get a trailer brake modual as well, helps with braking down steep hills and in the rain....
