I have a homemade trailer with a wooden double-decker setup that I use to transport two karts, a stand, and a toolbox.
My '99 Civic is slow up hills with it; I am forced into using the rutted right lane on the freeway.
Can anyone recommend a car/trailer setup that can:
- Carry two karts, two stands, a big toolbox, driver gear, chemicals, and spares, getting at least 15 M.P.G. at 90 M.P.H. on the flat. I think that would be enough to give me maneuvering speed and gradeability without completely flogging the machinery all of the time.
- Attain 25 M.P.G. at a steady 75 MPH unloaded.
My first thought would be a 250-350 hp passenger car pulling a two-axle open car hauler running on four passenger car tires with a combined load rating at least 4/3 of the total trailer weight and a S or T speed rating.
