Default Hauling 2 Dragsters in a trailer

We have a 32 foot trailer and have been thinking about putting downswept headers on both dragsters. I've been told you can't do it. We have a quad at the rear of the trailer so the cars need to be at the front. Does anyone know if it can be done??

Used to haul 2 dragsters in a 32 foot trailer but both had upswept headers, along with 4 wheeler, generator, etc..... I have also heard it could not be done with downswept headers but I cannot speak from experience.... Sorry I wasn't any help to ya either.

32ft.. that's a ton of room for two dragsters with downswept headers... we did it with a 28 footer!! The 32 footer was like a dream...Back the first car in against the wall, If you have a dragster dolly it makes it that much easier because then you can kick the front - end all the way over against the wall, then just drive the second car right into the trailer, you'll have about 6 inches between the rear & front tire of each car....We get the cars in just enough to clear the chute on the forward facing car....just put a good piece of timber in the step of the side door, the forward facing car maybe closer to that edge of the step.....The golf cart & drums of alky right in the front of the trailer...I hope of course you use load Bars ...But it can be done with ease.. we can load two cars in just about 5 minutes no problem!!

Thanks for the help. I was calling around checking header prices and it was one of them that told me they wouldn't fit with downswept on both cars..

What about lifting the front of one car ? My buddy put a camaro and a 235" dragster in a trailer that size. They winch up the front of the dragster and put a crossbar up that has pockets to hold the front wheels. Actually lots of room I thought it was odd and alot of work at first but it goes pretty quick.

Just did it, like everyone said, back one in and drive one in, our cars were 30" different in length which actually helped, we had to take one header off one of the cars.
