Car Hauling Trailer Advice and Auto Transport Equipment Tips – let’s get started.
Car Hauling Truck Ram 5500 Dually
Meet Dave. He’s a Car Hauler and the Owner-Operator of Clarksville Trucking LLC car hauling business. He drives a RAM 5500 dually outfitted with a Cummins inline 6-cylinder which has 300 horsepower and 750 pounds of torque. Perfect for car hauling! The Ram Chassis Cab model is ideal for smaller auto transport trailers because it has plenty of capability and power efficiency that a car hauling business needs. In fact, these heavy-duty RAM 500 dually trucks are engineered to transport a lot of cars over the course of their lifetimes. Also, Dave’s Ram dually has a 110-gallon auxilary fuel tank plus the 22-gallon onboard tank. It’s also upfitted with aluminum CM truck bed and a B&W car hauling trailer hitch. So even with a rugged auto transport trailer, this RAM dually is designed to deliver 200,000 customer-equivalent miles at a solid pace. That’s a lot of car hauling!
Car Hauling TRAILER WALLY-MO 4-CAR
Meet Dave’s Wally-Mo 50-foot 4-car belly-loading car hauling trailer. Altogether, his whole rig weighs about 22,000 pounds empty. Running loaded approximately 42,000 pounds and his truck is registered for 48,000 pounds. This auto transport trailer is designed to haul 4 vehicles and has self-contained hydraulics in order to raise the neck of the transport trailer when it’s unhooked from the truck. That’s how you load the belly car. This Wally-Mo 4-car vehicle transport trailer also features aluminum slide-in ramps (rated for 5,000 pounds) and steel punched hole decking. The 12,000 pound dexter electric brake axles come standard but Dave had the center belly on this one custom-fitted flat so he can also haul other vehicles – such as motorcycles.
Wally-Mo 4-Car Belling Loader Customized
For INOPS, Dave also has a Lift and Tow wheel lift system mounted to the truck so he can pick up up the wheels of inoperable vehicles and back them into the belly of the trailer (or up on the back ramp where he can pull it forward with the Ramsey 9,000 pound winch).
