Stacker trailers are the most complex trailers to design and build. You definitely want a skilled dealer and a fully capable manufacturer behind you when considering stackers. Here are some of the major considerations when purchasing a stacker trailer and we will gladly go through all of them with you. For example, stackers can either be built utilizing a tag trailer (bumper pull) or a gooseneck/fifth-wheel trailer. The most common is an automotive drive-on style lift that is placed inside the trailer. The second lift style uses a lift gate that drops to the ground and raises either to the main trailer floor or to a loft area for transporting. This type of lift is much more complex and costly.
As for vehicle specs, the type of cars, trucks, motorcycles, golf carts, sand rails, stock cars, and drag racers all have specific needs. Critical dimensions are required for width, length, height, ground clearances, and wheel bases. The two choices for frames are aluminum or steel. Exterior considerations could include matching the motor-coach height or color schemes; wedge nose or flat front designs; wheels, brakes and suspensions, and observation decks. Interior options are abundant, like finished walls, drive-on or storage lofts, entertainment centers, and cabinets, etc. Advantage Trailer, as the largest dealer for ATC, has trained and experienced trailer designers on staff able to help plan your stacker car trailer.
