Default Will a cobra fit in this trailer?

http://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/ctd/2305827550.html

Can anyone who uses an enclosed car hauler for their cobra enlighten me on the required interior dimensions I'd need for a trailer? And I'm wondering how the heck to get out of the car after getting it in there. Some sort of dukes-of-hazard move or making sure the trailer has a side door correctly located? Or should they be pushed into the trailer and not driven?

Am considering my storage and hauling options for a someday cobra.

Default Too tight?

According to the Superformance website:

Dimensions:

* Wheelbase: 90"
* Length: 152"
* Height (top of screen): 48"
* Width (Overall): 69"
* Track Front: 54"
* Track Rear: 57"

Trying to get by with the smallest trailer possible. Do you think width overall = outside mirror to mirror? So a 7' (84") x 16' (192") trailer would probably be cutting it too close I suppose, not enough width to spare?

I hauled my Cobra back from Dallas to Indianapolis in a trailer this size. It is a very tight fit on width. You have to climb over the trunk lid to get out. If you bought the trailer, I would cut out and add a "driver exit" door on the side that you can climb out of.

If you are looking for the smallest trailer possible to haul a Cobra then try one of the Serphant Express trailers....they are made for Cobras.....they are also a little spendy for my budget but your other choices are a open trailer like i have......it never rains in California so i dont need an enclosed trailer....haha

Guess an 8.5 x 16 would work better.

The serpent trailers look pretty nice but with basically the same footprint I feel like I should get a trailer that I can use for my other toys as well. And they're about as much as a larger solid sidewall trailer.

Still not sure how I would tie down the front or get out of the car. Cutting in another door is a good idea.
