Tried to rent a trailer for the event in San Antonio (what a disaster and wound-up driving). Greatly enjoyed the event and meeting the people even if I still need to keep my day job and not plan to become a drag racer. I am now determined to buy a trailer that can load and unload a Viper without having to build an elaborate set of extra ramps, boards, etc. Does anyone have a recommendation of a manufacturer, dealer or otherwise that makes such a trailer?

Try and find one that has already pulled a viper. They are tough getting on/off without scraping. At a minimum it has to have a dropped rear (beaver tail). The back of my trailer is approximately 18" off the ground and it takes 6-7 foot of ramp to unload the viper.

Classic Motorsports makes a nice trailer and also sells a set of telescoping ramps as an aftermarket item. For anyone that is close to getting their car down scrape free, these might solve the problem. Another thing to watch is that the door will clear the trailer's fenders. I opted for a sixteen foot bed to be able to store it in a garage. I think that is referred to as a 20 foot trailer.

One last thing, you need some type of fairing. You will beat the car to death in a short time unless you somehow protect the front

I just brought home my Sloan's Kwik-load from Sherman, Texas this past weekend. This is an open roll-back type of trailer; it has hauled many vipers, now including mine. Check out their web site. The Texas Rollback trailer is the same thing (they apparently copied the design from Sloan according to Sloan). I think the Texas Rollback web site may be more illustrative of the mechanism though. No ramps necessary (ingenious really). The Sloan is less expensive and better IMO (I checked ouy both). I got the 20' bed (18' is standard), fairing and electric winch as options.
