Trailer Modifications for NFGT

I realized I needed to modify my GT trailer to fit the new GT. First, I needed the base almost 3" wider, and second, because the door is further forward and hinges upward, my trailer side door had to change. I ended up with linear bearings on the roof and having the side door slide rearward. Originally the trailer door would have prevented me from exiting the car after loading. With the window down. the GT door opens fully now. I added access doors at each corner to ease strapping the car down. I also added three line lasers to the trailer ceiling to use as a guide when driving on. I just keep it between the two stripes on my car. As you can see, it's a close fit!IMG_0432.JPGIMG_6274.JPGIMG_6275.JPGIMG_6276.JPG

Very interesting idea with the laser. Is that permanently mounted?

Yes, we use those lasers at work. I painted a line on the center of the trailer bed so I can adjust them if needed.

We actually own IP on using lasers and other means to align your car into a trailer by yourself perfectly every time. You will see a product next year for doing this :)
