Event Coverage 39/40 Ford width with/at the running boards - for trailer

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by stillrunners, Jul 13, 2017.

  1. Need to get the total width - going to look at a car about 4 hrs away - was going to rent a U-Haul when/if I bought it...their newer trailer is about 72" and the older car transport is 68"...thanks guys...
     
  2. Be sure to tell the u-haul guys your hauling a Corolla or something like that which they can understand. Heard tell, that if the car isn't on their chart (like a '40 won't be); they won't rent the trailer for liability reasons.
