U-Haul car hauler dimensions

Anyone know what the dimensions of the U-Haul haulers are?

Would something on full width Big Bronco axles w/ 33" tires fit? Total width is ~82".

Deck width is 75" and about 77" between the fenders.

I just measured mine.

I barely got my nissan on it when it was on 32's, and it bowed the deck of the trailer several inches when it was on it. I used the chains to load the trailer and straighten it out.

Go ahead and find where the dimensions of the car haulers are listed on there. What? Can't find it? Go fuck a blender instead.

Damn. Thanks for the info! I need to move the hardbody from Houston to a little east of Seguin. Got a line on a dovetail that'll deffinitely fit the Patrol but I'm not to optimistic about it handling the HB.

I asked for real dimensions, not what U-haul recomends.

Must have a maximum outside-to-outside tire width of 79.25"
Note: outside tire width over 75" must use late-model U-Haul Auto Transport (identifiable by silver galvanized color).
Can I still fuck a blender?

Adding to the 'blender fucking'

Quote:
The vehicle being towed:

* Must not weigh in excess of 4,000 lbs.
* Must have a maximum outside-to-outside tire width of 79.25"
Note: outside tire width over 75" must use late-model U-Haul Auto Transport (identifiable by silver galvanized color).
* Must have a maximum wheelbase (distance from front axle to rear axle, usually posted on the driver's side door jamb) of 133 inches.
I think that sums it up, all from the link I posted. Weigh more then 4,000lb, wider than 79.25", WB greater than 133? THEN IT WON'T FIT.

Go stick your dick in a Cuisinart 5.5 Quart 12-Speed Stand Mixer with the dough hook attached (model number SM-55...ahh fuck it I might as well give you the owners manual to that also!)

Just driving it on there would be a no-go, unless you deflated the tires enough to let them conform and squeeze on there.

Tonight I just checked both car haulers that U Haul has. One is an orange painted one which is smaller than the other one which is newer, all galvanized in color.
The orange painted one is, on the platform area MAXIMUM 143" long x 74 1/2" wide. Nothing larger will fit, period.
The galvanized one is, on the platform area MAXIMUM 148" long x 79 1/4" wide.

One thing my brother mentioned while looking at these trailers was kinda interesting. He mentioned that the ramps do extend out and "could" safely support something off the end of the trailer an X amount of inches if no other choice was left. I'm not suggesting anything but, it's something we noted.

Best thing I can suggest though, if making a long trip like my brother and I are planning (1,400+ miles one way) is to just go buy a used car hauler. I've seen some car haulers on craigslist for under $800 that in the end, we'll have made a good investment, being able to put our $240 rental fee towards something we can easily resell and get money back out of. And, car haulers typically carry a lot more weight and are much longer.

I hauled my 72 blazer with 36 inch swampers on it on a Budget flat bed. for 1500 miles. I don't know if they are the same as Uhauls, but mine was a tandem axle trailer. I think that they put the 4000 pound limit on there so stupid drivers don't carry something that they, or their vehicle can't safely tow.

the straps on the u-haul will not fit over the tire , but you can get some from Wal-Mart and attach them to the u-haul ones

Best to buy your own straps or chains and binders.

You might try Ryder. It has been a while, but I think I used a Ryder trailer to haul a 72 Blazer 3/4 ton with 39.5 Swampers.
