My new 2015 Prowler hauler trailer
I have decided to use my 16' 'trash' trailer (originally bought to shoot coyotes from while keeping myself safe from a pack attack) to haul my Prowler.
The basic trailer had 205/75-15 tires which I have replaced with 225/75-15 tires (with 2 spares). The base trailer did not have brakes. I have installed a new rear axle complete with Dexter electric brakes. The base trailer had minimum incandescent lighting. I have converted to LEDs adding extra lighting where I thought it will increase visibility.
Yesterday, I installed 6 3/8" "D" rings into the floor.
I still have to wire the lighting and brakes (converting the 4 wire harness to a 7 way harness).
With the barn door rear opening being 80-1/2" tall and 77" wide, I use my aluminum ramps and the Prowler slips right in without interference from the trailer door frame.
Here is a link to where I am at as of 03/31/2016:

Note #1: The interior dimensions are 83" tall to the bottom of the ceiling (80-1/2" at rear door opening) and 77" wide.
Note #2: Using this trailer vs. a flat bed trailer should prevent hail damage and keep folks from pilfering things or adjusting my lights etc. when parked away from home.
Note #3: As I get further along. I will add photos of the ramps and the Prowler being loaded and secured.
