When Matt at Urchfab starts working on something you can always count on there being some creative and cool elements to whatever he’s doing, even if what he’s doing is fixing up and old car trailer. Keep in mind, the trailers in the UK are primarily small and weird in comparison to what we use here in the United States. The primary reason of course is narrow roads. If you have a trailer that is a couple feet wider than the car it is hauling, a car that just fits in the lanes of the roads it travels on, then there is no way that trailer is going to make it down your average UK road. Because of this the axles are much narrower than comparable trailers in the US, which places the wheels under the deck of the trailer. This makes cars sit higher on the trailers than they do here and it also means the trailers tend to have smaller wheels to try and keep the height to at least some reasonable level.
Because of the added height the ramps needed for loading a lowered race or performance car are pretty long, and in this video they are one of the things that Urch goes about customizing. He not only shaves the ramps so they will sit lower to the ground, but also modifies the mounting end so that they are flush with the trailer deck and won’t hang up on anything low on the car being unloaded. Up front he goes for a really trick looking battery tray and winch mount that we dig. Having a CNC Plasma cutter certainly has it’s advantages.
