Default 8 car autocarrier

Hello again. Does anyone know where I can find an 8 car auto carrier with ramp, two decks where the top deck articulates forming an "arch" where the top car is located? The trailer sits behind the cab. I have been looking for sometime, but for some reason I don't see any in kit form or even custom builds.

Not quite sure exactly what you're asking, so here are some i've run across before

I always really liked this custom COE one.

And this custom grand hauler one

I hadn't seen this one yet

One of the guys near Indiana runs a mighty Tonka car carrier trailer full of die cast cars, should have some pics in meets/shows section

But man that's gonna be a lot of juggling remotes to make it all work to load / unload

There is a set of files on Thingiverse for 3d printing and building a car hauler trailer. Looks like it would take a lot of filament and time to print out. Search for thing: 3677802.

Do you mind 3D printing one?

There are files on Thingivere.com for one on them. NOT sure if it's 5th wheel mounted or mounted liek the one you seek.

It is 5th wheel mounted, the Thingiverse one. I saw some pictures of one that a PNWSTE member was 3D prinitng. He had went through 3 of the 2.2KG spools of filament to maker er, & STILL wasn't finished with er!

Goodisons Mighty-Tonka car carrier with some 1/18 diecast cars chained down.



--
And i have learned that the regular pressed steel Car Transporter trailers from Tonka, Nylint, Structo, and Buddy L are too small for 1/14 - 1/16 RC cars. However, i am stubborn. I might be considering something rather abusive with some old Buddy-L, and Tonka stuff
