Jeebus! I almost forgot. Coke car got a new home! Got a screaming deal on a 20' enclosed. 6 mos. old, used twice.

Already made some shelves for it. Working on the aux battery and solar charger today.

Thanks. It's an exact match, and I've already mounted it to the in-side of the trailer.

Nice trailer. I see the winch hiding back there, too. I recently put one from Northern Tool in mine.

Did you tongue balance it with the car like that? Seems a bit far back to me.

I have not. I'm very cautious to overload the Cayenne. I need to get/borrow a tongue scale. and possible some load leveling bars.

Leveling bars are nice. You'll want ~800lbs on the tongue when loaded for stability driving and parked.

Do you back it in to protect the chin spoiler?

Andrew--

From my experience bank: Plan to put your shelf stuff in bins that you can secure in place while driving. Or put doors with hard catches on the shelves so they stay closed. Else stuff has a way of rattling around with the car. Bins let you load your race stuff in the garage rather than hunched down in the trailer. Put a list of contents on each bin, and you'll be able to check the contents before (and after...) each event to see what's missing. A checklist is the best way to make sure stuff isn't forgotten.

My too sense...

The splitter tends to catch when loaded nose first, although I've not tried it on this trailer yet. But using the rear tow hook and the winch makes it a breeze to load ***-end first.

Cayenne has a 650# tongue weight limit. Just ordered a tongue scale. I'm curious now.

That's my plan. Everything in bins. I put a 1/2" lip on the shelves to stiffen the shelves and act as a minor restraint. Also prevents **** from rolling off the workbench. I've already added some eye bolts across the middle of each shelf to attach a simple ratchet strap. This will keep the bins in place while towing, but can come right off when parked.

Need to paint the floor and add a few additional touches, but I'm super excited about traveling with it this summer to various tracks. What a disease!
