For the record, there where several Camaro's towed by new Colorado's to CamaroFest this year, I think Becky's might even have been one of them?

Futura trailer

I went a bit overboard, but this thing is sweet. 2017 Colorado Z71 with V-6 goes fine. No ramps, simply lower it...

Spell check nailed title. Futura trailer, made in New Zealand...

nice looking trailer! Can the door open with the car loaded?

I'm still not sure you need to trailer a brand new Camaro - but that's a separate discussion! My 71 is running the 200TW Nitto tires (NT05) and I would still drive that one to an autox event - maybe not to a RR event tho.

Love my Colorado tho btw - I have a 2018 4 door long bed 4x4 V6 and it's a beast of a truck yet still easy to park and best of all fits in my garage!

Thanks.... Yes, you can open the door, also came with winch to pull it up. I just leave the car running so the steering is easy, and it comes with a wireless remote, and you just walk next to it and adjust the wheel.. Have to thank the wife for pushing me to get one without ramps, nice when your alone....

I have almost a 3 hour drive to Sebring and recently picked up a nail. And it is nice to cruise in the truck home. Note, this is possible after three kids, braces , and now they are thru college, amazing how much money those little people take�� Dads time to have fun...

Truck: 2010 Ram 1500 with the towing package
Trailer: Aluma "8218 Tilt" all aluminum tilt trailer 18' long. Electric brakes, full lighting, aluminum wheels, hydraulic piston to lock or slow down the tilt action. Fenders are removable to give extra wiggle room and let the door open fully to get out.



Trailer weighs around 1500, Car weighs 3880


It pulls like it isn't back there. I'm heading to the SCCA Time Trials Nationals next month which is 450 miles each way.


I'm getting a front rock guard installed. I can load and unload without a spotter. I have some little 24" steps made out of left over MDF board that keeps it from scraping the air splitter strips.

Thank you Sir! Funny story from my last tack day:


This guy walks up and says that I looked good out on the track. He then tells me that he has his check book in his car. He offers me $16,500 for the car and the trailer.

Congrats. Same here. Add private high school to that list. I sold the race cars and trailers and put that chapter on hold for 10 years or so myself.

I did look at GA too and actually the pic I posted was from there (I think). Both were the same price and BG was a bit closer for me. TSI in Dallas didn't have any dovetails and after using the 18' tilt going to Camaro Fest I leaned a little bit toward this one so I could keep it 18'. Have some tight turns in my driveway.

Now looking at a winch. The tilt I used had one mounted like yours.
