    i use my race car trailer to haul my tractor.

    OK so you can use a car hauling trailer to haul a tractor on.
    But can you use a tractor hauling trailer to haul a car on?

    My open trailer has an open center...

    Open center trailers, at least mine, gives a little more payload because the trailer weighs less.

    I added another rail to fit my BX23 and narrow track antique cars.

    The problem with doing this is it will add to the weight and take away from the weight carrying capacity. These trailers were engineered to be open and have extra supports in them. A flat deck trailer on the other hand was engineered so that the deck itself give some of the necessary structural strength. What you will end up with if you try to make a open center trailer into a flat deck trailer is one that has a lower than normal capacity and will be just heavy all the time.

    *This makes sense.

    Lefty has exactly what you are looking for, it will haul a tractor, truck, car, atv, utv, golf cart, motorcycle, trycycle, bicycle, furniture, appliances, firewood, plywood, sheetrock, 2x4s, 4x4s, 2x2s, 1x2s, 2x8s, 2x6s, manure, gravel, dirt, sand, sawdust, compost.....and whatever else you can put on it.

    But there is one thing it will not haul....@**....no sides to keep him from jumping off.

    Yep, that is basically what I have but with a wood deck. Its a 7,000# 18' by 76" wide trailer with a rail. I have hauled a Suburban and 20 other cars. The longest haul was a Lincoln Aviator 250 miles from Detroit Auction. Its fitted with a winch and a strap box on the tongue so everything is always right there. It also has a spare tire on the opposite side.

    It has hauled everything listed above and then some.

    Thanks for all your input !! I think I will be alright going with the trailer I'm looking at. Weight wise the trailer will handle it. Being an open center I have plans to fill the center with removable decking making the trailer able to be used either way, open or full deck. I checked the brimar website and the full deck trailer weighs about 360 lbs more than the open. The price seems good @ 1300.00 for a 2004 trailer.
