FELK Car Float Trailers
Felk Engineering manufactures blue-label car float trailers for both the public and private sectors in Australia. A car float trailer is specifically designed to support the haulage of individual vehicles, such as cars, 4WDs etc.
We are technically able to manufacture these up to 4500kg GVM, however, since individual cars typically maximum weight is around 2500kg, our most popular models are the 3,000kg and 3,500kg GVM options, people typically do not require anything smaller or larger than these.

Car Float Trailer FAQ
What winch options do I have?
Mechanical or electric (BYO).
For people who are using the trailer frequently, they should opt for an electric winch.
For those using the trailer less often, mechanical winch is the way to go.
What is the floor type?
Checker plate or expanded mesh.
Do I need any sides above the chassis?
You do not need any sides, it can be a naked design so to speak.
Do you offer different width ramps?
Yes, ramp width can vary to accommodate for varying model cars.
What considerations should someone consider when building a custom car float?
The vehicle length, width, weight and ground clearance of the vehicles that will be predominantly carried.
This will have some difference on the build depending on those dimensions.
People with a lower ground clearance will most likely go for the beavertail option so their front bumper bar doesn’t scrape going up the ramp.
