History of Car Carrier Trailers

Car carrier trailers have been around for more than 60 years. The first car carriers only carried one car, but advancements were quickly made so that four cars could be carried at the same time. The quad trailer was a very popular model that had places to carry two cars on the upper deck of the trailer and two cars on the lower deck. Auto manufacturers soon developed ways to carry two or three cars on the truck chassis and another five on the trailer. They were now up to hauling eight cars at a time. By the mid-1960s, the basic design for modern car carrier trailers emerged. Most car carrier trailers in America are designed to carry between five and nine cars at a time.

Car Carrier Design

Open car carriers, the most common type seen today, have a number of storage and loading ramps that can be lifted and tilted independently using hydraulics. Car carriers don't typically have winches or loaders because they rely on the power of the vehicles instead of outside power. The hydraulics on the trailer allow the ramps to line up on a slope so that drivers can drive the vehicles onto the trailer and secure them with wheel straps, chains, or tie-down ratchets. The ramps can then be tilted in another direction if necessary to get as many vehicles loaded onto the trailer as possible. The top deck of the trailer is usually loaded first and unloaded last to minimize the risk to cars on other decks during the loading and unloading process.
