An Enclosed Car Trailer that Gets the Job Done

I never thought I'd need a trailer — that is, until my parents decided that they wanted to buy a second house that they so appropriately dubbed their “winter home.” Since we live in beautiful Myrtle Beach where the sun shines more days out of the year than not, my husband and I thought that my parents were nuts for purchasing a winter home up north where it snows. Especially because we live in a tourist hub where people we call “snowbirds” flock to every winter to escape harsher climates. But so goes life.

Instead of wasting time questioning my parents' choices, I was tasked with finding them the perfect enclosed car trailer to help them haul their second car and other belongings to New Jersey with them each winter.

Enter the 8.5 x 16 Spartan enclosed car hauler.

The 8.5 x 16 enclosed trailer from Spartan seemed like the clear choice for our needs. The folks at Affordable Trailers pointed out the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) of just under 10,000 pounds, which is perfect for hauling my mom's 2019 Ford Fusion. Sure, we could have opted for an open car trailer, but an enclosed car hauler such as the 8.5 x 16 Spartan made more sense for us as we wanted to keep my parents' car and belongings safe from damaging weather conditions. Choosing an enclosed car trailer also gave us peace of mind due to its added security. Now, when my parents stop halfway from here to New Jersey, they can feel safe knowing that their belongings are safely locked up in the trailer.

Seriously, though, this is a top-notch product that can be used in several situations other than helping my parents move each winter to their second home. The Spartan 8.5 x 16 TA enclosed car hauler can be used as a landscaping trailer for individuals or companies that have zero turn lawn mowers and other heavy equipment. It can also be used as a race car trailer for those who have a need for speed. We've even seen these outfitted as concession trailers! Basically, what we're trying to say is this - if you have heavy stuff to move from point A to point B, this trailer's the one for you.
