Kwik Load Trailers?

Has anyone tried to get a GT40 onto a "Kwik Load Trailer"? I saw one this weekend in the parking lot at the Misselwood Concours at Endicott College (nice local Concours).

It has an interesting design. To tilt the trailer, you lock the trailer wheels, pull a couple of pins, and then slowly back up the tow vehicle, shifting the location of the bed relative to axles.

Kwik Load Traliers Inc

The angle of the trailer bed looked shallow enough that it might accommodate a GT40.

I had Sloan's Kwik Load trailer for several years and towed my RCR GT40 on it many times.
It worked out very well. Fits perfectly.

I have had a Texas Roll-back easy load trailer for almost 20 years and its a great open trailer.

Ben,

I have one and had a receiver hitch mounted at the front so I can use a Warn multi-mount winch. I have had no problems with the Sloan trailer loading my SLC and a Viper.

It looks like a well-thought out trailer.

How long was your trailer? The one I saw said it was 20' (I'm not sure if that's the length of the trailer, or the bed).
