I will be using my new trailer for the first time this coming weekend. I will be racing my 1935 BMW 315/1 roadster in the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival at Sears Point Raceway.
I tried a test load and haul today just to be sure everything was in order. It all works great, and tows beautifully! Scooters fits and I’m a happy boy.
Custom Trailer for Green Lamborgini
The folks at Montrose trailers customed this for my cars and the build quality and final product is well above my expectations. I have just pulled my car 600+ miles and after loading and unloading my car, I can say this is the best auto trailer I have owned. It has more advantages than I can list but it rides well. looks great, is easy to get to your car through all the access so tie downs and tightening on the road is a snap. Light enough to pull behind a SUV but so well built that you can be comfortable with your high dollar toys in the back.
If you have a supercar or any car and are frustrated with the limitations of "breadbox" trailers this is it. It is not cheap but I wasted a lot of money on lousy trailers at 1/2 the price that never worked well.
After 10 years of towing and transporting, this trailer does it all.
Custom Lamborgini Trailer
Last month I finally pulled the plug and had Montrose Trailers build me a trailer. Gary Sr. delivered the trailer to me himself during the latter part of last week. What a great man. After trekking almost 1400 miles, he took around two hours to walk me through and go over every detail of the build.
This trailer build will accommodate the Gallardo, Huracan and even the Aventador, allowing the doors to open on both sides. Normal ramp size is 10’ x 15” but they extended my ramps to 12’ x 17”. Using the car front lift, the extra 2’ provides plenty of clearance loading and unloading the car. Since I travel alone a lot, the 17” ramps provide the security in knowing I can zip up and down the ramps with plenty of room for my tires.
I can say driving in and out of the trailer is not a problem at all. Escape hatches on both sides in my opinion are a must as it not only allows easy access to the car, strapping down the tires is a breeze. It was suggested I go with the Mac’s VersaTie track system along with their custom wheel nets. Upon providing Jeremy at Mac’s with my measurements, he had the nets and gear to me in a week.
I made a 300 mile round trip this past weekend pulling my G Spyder behind my 2016 Cayenne Turbo S. Not a problem at all, all aluminum, great aero dynamics made for a very smooth and stable pull. Montrose moved the axles back on the trailer to accommodate the rear weight of the Lambo. I was able to complete the loading of the car and able to drive away in about 30 minutes.
Wanting a trailer for your Lambo or car? Call Montrose, they will build to spec.

Trailer pulled great. Very satisfied. Here are a few pictures.
I looked at many trailers and the Montrose is the lightest most aerodynamic and user friendly that I have found! The ease of just driving the car in the trailer and opening the driver door to just walk out is so worth it. Also being able to load by yourself and not having to worry about hitting your wheels or mirrors on the sides of the trailer due to the extra width is a welcome relief! This trailer is light enough that when unloaded I can move it around by hand in my shop on the concrete floor. Montrose has really differentiated themselves with this and the front slant design cuts through the wind so well. I have many different trailers for various needs but I have to say that the Montrose is easily my favorite and the ease of everything involved with its application.

I wanted to say thank you and do so in a way others can read. You two worked with me and not only met but exceeded my expectations. The custom utility your shop fabricated is of the highest quality and has all the function I requested. From the ability to roll cargo into it to the side mounted shelf, the trailer will serve all the purposes I purchased it for. Built to tow behind my 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, the height and width turned out to be perfect. The safety aspect is great because I can see around it with the factory mirrors. Moreover, during my more than 800 mile drive home towing the trailer I averaged 19 miles per gallon, which is awesome considering I averaged 23 miles per gallon without the trailer on the same exact roads traveling to your shop. Mind you the trailer weighs 900 pounds empty! The trailer towed straight and smooth and the quality Dexter axle makes a world of difference over inferior axles competitors use in mass produced trailers of similar cargo capacities.
For anyone reading this review, it is true that you get what you pay for. Montrose Trailers is a stand up company that produces a very quality product that exceeds the quality I have seen in three major trailer manufacturers from previous purchases. The price was very fair and carefully explained to me as we progressed through the build and modifications. I fully expect my custom utility trailer to outlast my Jeep and the next vehicle that tows it. If I ever find I need a different type of trailer to meet a need I have, you will receive a phone call from me. Thank you for building a quality trailer in America using American products.
