Wow, that's nice! What is the length of the bed of that trailer? Are those add-ons from featherlite or somewhere else?

typical 3110 trailer, 18ĺ. The tire rack was a custom build. I added the diamond plate myself. Tool box was from Tractor Supply Co.

To watch the line I use a little hand held mirror held outside the window both loading and unloading.

tgsmith4845 mentioned using a 2x4 drive over chock. I made some taller chocks so they shouldn't be driven over and mounted them at the front of the trailer. Next to these chocks I have 2x4 sections facing parallel to the trailer positioned just outside of where the tires will sit. They are bolt down if I need the trailer for something besides the car. So between the line and the front chocks the car is positioned very close to the same way very time. The chocks and 2x4 act to hold the front. For the rear I cross the tiedowns.

Although at my house it is less of an issue because my driveway slope makes it so I can back straight onto the trailer (ramps are parallel to ground) so it is less of an issue to get it lined up. Of course, at the track that's not the case.
Great comments and a great idea.

Great set up. I think I am going to order the Traillex tire rack at some point.
