I think I understand, it means chassis version?

 

Kinda.  To some extent, more of a generation of the GT-R.

Looks like they are done!!!  I can try to pick it up this Saturday if possible.

 

As you can see, it fits 5 tires.  So I can have a back up tire and 4 wet weather tires or 4 slicks or whatever.

 

Also on the sides, he made it that I can slide the Bendpak Quickjacks in to carry (though it's tough to see how secure it will be).  Updated photos when I get to pick it up in person.  For now here are the pictures from the trailer makers.

 

**also will be picking up the trailer in my Tesla X!  Should be interesting.  It really is the first all electric vehicle that can TOW!

Looks awesome and well built! How do you keep the wheels from banging each other when they are on the bar?

they fit under the bar like this...

I had to look closely but the metal grate is shaped like a trapezoid to fit the tires in.

By my eyeballometer, no way are your wheels gunna fit in those gaps.

Looks like a solid design though.

The measurements say 12" for each tire - that would be about a 10.5" wheel, give or take depending on the width of the tire...

Yep. Stand by my guess, but hope I'm wrong. :)

Don't know. The trailer shop is in Oklahoma. So been doing this all by measurements and pictures.

Thought it would be better to have a real tire and the bendpak to check

I'm just trying to keep the OK <--> TX rivalry going strong. I know an awesome fab shop in Forth Worth if you ever need something like this again.
