Enclosed Trailer

Anyone here use an enclosed trailer for transporting their D90? I am in the market for a trailer and wanted to know the size. This is for a ST stock D90. Need to know what the smallest reasonable option would be. Any input appreciated!

Are you trying to say you're looking to buy an enclosed trailer?

Yes, but not looking for used, going to buy new and needed size recommendations.

I don't have sizing information, but I've always thought that an aluminum trailer would work out well. A bit pricey but nice.

Couldn't you just take the stock D90 ST dimensions and add up to 2 feet up top (if you intend to fit a roof rack at some point) and a few extra feet in length?

I got lucky. My neighbor's new acquisition. My E30 fits but not a chance for my D-90.

NO chance it will fit in that trailer. We have an enclosed with 84 inch opening. You need a minimum of 81 inches for stock height with normal tires. That is still without a roof rack.

Extra height is a must, i believe 7ft door on mine. '29 v-nose so way overkill in length for a d90.

That trailer is maybe 72" tall inside. He purchased for his son's carting series. Ranked 3rd Nationally.

Thanks for the feedback. Looks like enclosed is not an option unless I buy a big car hauler. Just need a trailer for ATVs and figured I would see what dimensions are needed for enclosed.

I have towed my 90 a lot, never had an issue with road debris hitting it with a normal car hauler. I am sure someone would let you borrow a top.

I had a friend that towed a lifted Jeep in an enclosed trailer. He had the roof modified in a wedge so that the truck would fit in. I forget what size door he used but think it was a roll up and then used ramps.

Many stock enclosed car trailers only have 84 inches internal height. A trailer with the height you need is probably not going to be found on the lot.

Many manufacturers will build in the extra height you need. I'd get tempted to get something twice as long as needed, and make the extra into a toy hauler type space. While the truck space gets a fly screen so you have a ready built man cave

Have to assume you have full size pick up for this job. Sounds like a job for a 5th wheel.

I sold a stock 110 recently to a fellow that tried to move it with an enclosed trailer. Tight is an understatement. We had to let virtually all the air out of the rear tires to get it in. Not a viable long term solution.

Oh, should have told you, it will have to be a custom trailer with a full foot of extra height over anything you will find in town. I tried and ended up ordering it from the manufacture out of Georgia. There is also another in Utah, but its more expensive with less features...
