Long Term Update: Carson Trailer Car HaulerPosted in Product Reviews on June 20, 2014 Comment (0)
It's no secret that we're pretty hard on equipment when testing the limits of off-road products and our project trucks are no different. It goes without saying that our project trucks have ended up on the back of a tow truck on occasion but lucky for us, one of our most reliable vehicles that has gotten our project trucks out of a jambs time and time again has been our faithful Carson Trailer Car Hauler.
We've loaded it with everything from clapped out CJs to our Project STD Super Duty but we recently got to take care of some unfinished business from our last trip out to the desert. While testing the limits of our Bronco's suspension, we somehow managed to develop a a huge power loss which eventually caused us to have to use one of our 100-mile AAA tows. While it wasn't enough to get it all the way home, we were able to drop it off at our good friend, Metal Munky's place for some minor repairs as well as the addition of a new rear tube-bumper.
Unfortunately we still have a few more gremlins plaguing our Bronco so we decided to head out with our Carson Trailer to get our project truck back home to fix it before desert season kicks off again.
We've racked up quite a few miles with our Carson Trailer Car Hauler and we're really loving it. The wood floor has been easy to maintain and always cleans up really nice without much effort. One of the best feature of all has got to be the lack of noise from the wood bed. We can hardly tell we're pulling a trailer behind our tow rigs even while towing vehicles through the dirt.
The 8-lug axles feature electric brakes both front and rear which really helps when going down steep downgrades and we would highly recommend springing for this option when ordering yours.
Our Carson Trailer has proven to be one of our most reliable vehicles as well as a true hero when it comes to rescuing broken down trucks from the middle of nowhere.
