Your tire size pretty much tells the story. Try that on 7K axles with 235's - they simply need more fender clearance because of the larger tire. I had a drop deck tandem axle car hauler with 82" between the fenders, too - 3.5K axles and tires make that possible.

I'd have to agree with BigWoodyWag that 78" is probably as large as you could between the fenders in order to have adequate tire clearance with 7K axles and maintain the 102" legal width limit. I have not seen anything larger, myself.

One of the Southern High Roller guys I wheel with converted his, and built it all out. Pretty Bad ASS. The SHirleys did as well to their 53', search "Lucky Dog hauler" or something along those lines by BTF1.

For floor plans search the horsetrailer builder websites for ideas. Horse people are all about the LQ's. Most sites have floorplans laid out for ideas.

Thanks. I've seen Shirley's new hauler, but I'm working on a slightly smaller trailer.

Anyone have pictures of interiors they have built themselves?

My 5th wheel Work & Play has tandem 7K lb torsion axles and it measures 81" between the wheel wells inside running 235/85/16 tires. The book it came with states something like 78.5" but real world measurements are wider.

Your TH isn't considered deck over? Curious to know what size tire on a 7k axle allows for 83" between the fenders if this is not a deck over application. Again, I only stated it would be unlikely and that I have never seen it.

Nope. Not deckover. Tire size is 235/80/16. 102" wide minus 16-ish for the tires... plus a few for the thickness of the wheel well leaves about 83".

My 22' bumper pull car hauler was the same way. Just about every other car hauler i've ever seen too.. :shrug:

My low-boy gooseneck has triple 7k axles with 82.5 between the wells. You had to have the right tire on for it to work though, found that out the hard way.

The Weekend warrior that I posted with pics earlier in this thread has 82in between the wells. My truck is 82.5in wide. It fits in there snug. It has a 7'2" rear door and that is the highest I have ever seen anywhere. I do not think you will ever find a 7'6" rear door. 82in is very possible.

People have enclosed trailers custom made every day. I've seen a 8ft rear door on a 26ft cargo trailer.

The rear doors come with 6", 12", 18", 24" etc, etc.... of extra height. The only real limit with the rear door is the width due to DOT.

I was talking about standard. I thought that is what he wanted.

Here are a couple of pics of the inside of my hauler, it is an 8 X 20 H&H cargo trailer that I have converted into a work and play unit. It is fully insulated with heat and AC, 30 service, 2 side windows, a 22" flat screen tv with built in DVD player, 2 bunk beds and a fold down couch/bed for a third person, that I will have the mattress and back for this week. I put G-floor down for easy clean up and a 12v converter to run the overhead lights and a cd player with 4 speakers. It does not have any water source and I don't plan to do that with this trailer. So far it works great for hauling the Sami and anything else you may want to throw in it. I have used it many times for camping and has worked out great, my daughter loves the bunk beds. Sorry for the cell phone pics.

I had no idea they did the conversion. I was checking it out at KOH, and they did an awesome job!! I like all the bunks/cubbies it has.

Thanks!

The only thing that I want to install yet is an awning. I think an awning would be great to have for shade and rain, but they are a little pricy. I will get some better pics up soon that are updated.

I am thinking about selling mine in a little while. Don't know how serious I am but for the right offer I may let it go. I will PM you if I go that route.
