Looks like a TSC logo on it, probably expensive though.

 

I don't have any of those stores in my area!

man i wish i had pictures... i think alot of you guys would call B.S. if you saw what ive hauled with my Z on 36's LOL.

 

-a big trailer intended to haul a Kobota tractor loaded down with a late '70s model complete conversion van laoded down with scrap metal for over 40 miles to the scrap yard... i think total weight of truck+trailer/van was well over 12,000lbs... and my truck by itself weighed 4,400lbs. so that means i hauled 8,000lbs over 40 miles. she did good though

-also hauled a '76 Dodge mud truck on a normal sized car trailer

-a '89 jeep cherokee on the same car trailer

-a '90 mustang SSP (police package) coupe on the same car trailer

-a '99 firebird v6 on bigger diamond plate car trailer with winch and storage box

-and my jetski when i had it lol

 

all this was with the 4.56 gears, intake and exhuast on 36's, but before the 266HR camshaft and Wait4me tune

That as the last thing i bought i finished building that trailer. I got it at Tractor Supply Co. It was less than 200 i think. Its just big enought for my spare tire so thats the main reason i got it but i always keep my straps, tarp and jack in there too. They have a plastic one also.

I dont have pics, but just bought a 16' Car hauler, and I scrap cars. Next year, depending on if I start my RWD conversion on my car, my Z will be hauling the car to shows all summer.

I put this one up a while ago, but here she is again. 25 ft V-Nose Snowmobile Trailer for NDSU's tractor pulling team. Weighs in at approximately 7000 lbs. A weight distributing hitch was a must have with this one.

This was the heaviest thing I ever towed. The illegal immigrant at the rental center refused to put the proper tongue weight on it and when I got up the road at the top of the hill on my way to the job site, the pavement had been ripped up and when I went from dirt to the fresh pavement I hit the bump and the front end of my truck came off the ground a few inches and slammed down. It was extremely stupid and I will not tow anything like that again with a Z. SSPX0117.jpg

Are those stock 16" Camaro wheels? Those look pretty good! Here is a photo of me pulling my Aprilia to California in my brothers enclosed trailer. it did just fine, except on the way back through Nevada, it got really windy and it was like having a parachute!

ZR2DAN, do you know the size and weight of that trailer with the bike in it you described? I have a Blazer ZR2 and may be renting one of those similar sized U-Hauls to get my personal goods from MI to CA for a job move. I am concerned about the wind and lack of power to maintain 65 on the hwy. I'm sure your mileage was poo as well. Tnx.

My boat is 3300 + full of fuel & gear but rather areodynamic, 3rd will pull it just fine.

 

The sled trailer is only about 2200 but pushes a lot more wind, it's 8.5' wide, about 15" wider than the Z's on each side, I run 3rd on the hills and can maintain 75 + on the flats in OD.

 

Last Feb, super bowl weekend, on the way to Millinocket ME with the sleds, somewhere north of Bangor:
