At 65 and 70 ft length limits for most states you would be pushing it as well as pulling them Tongue

They are serious trailers aimed at the dragster market.  empty weight probably around 8K, web site says empty tongue weight 1500.  Meant to be tag towed behind a toter home.  List price is around $60K.  Niche market, they will compete with big fifth-wheel designed for use behind a tractor truck.  I've seen them at the track but never really studied them.

What is it they say?  "You can separate the men from the boys by the price of their toys?"  Too long, too high, too much for me (I aint got the muny honey)

Clifford, there are about 20 on ebay. Do a search for stacker trailer. Most are new and being sold by dealers. But you should have an idea of worth.  Good Luck! Joe

She moved it Cliff, it is under the mattress now (at my age that is a pretty safe place to put it).

Which one do you pull the most Joe, the little one or the NASCAR stacker, just curious?

I pulled the little one the most. It made me just under 65'.  the stacker put me over 70'.

It made no difference to the Eagle. It handled either with ease. I've gotten rid of both of those and now have a taller 24' enclosed. Not as nice and not painted yet. Been using it for storage for over 3 years now.

The realization that I no longer live in Alaska, need the protection for the car and pickup, nor the shops and spares has a lot to do with it. Much easier to just hook up one of the trucks and go.

Thanks in advance.

Joe, that is a water tight marine explosion proof plug the rubber gasket is missing on yours change over to the RV type blade not the pin type and all the new controllers made buy manufactures like Tekonsha work off the brake and send a signal to the trailer don't ask me how they work but they do now no need for the high dollar air controllers any longer 50 buck and you are in business


good luck

Can you lead me to a source for this 50 dollar controler?

The trlr registration says 1990 if that helps any or changes your thoughts?

Is the plug in the photo for brake hook-up or is it a redudnent plug to the other round 7-pin.
 
I have scoured the thing there isisn't a tag on it anywhere.

The registration Year & Make says- 1990 Mara and thats all I have to work with.

Was there ever a trlr manufacturer called Marathon I googled that to a dead end.
