Loading a car into an enclosed car trailer can be a real pain. Check out this loading system so innovative that it won the 2012 NSRA New Product of the Year Award
Rail Ryder is a patented one-man trolley loading/unloading and securing system for enclosed motorsports trailers. It is designed with lightweight, all aluminum custom extrusions that allow you to tie down cars quickly and easily outside the trailer then roll it inside the trailer.
Rail Ryder has received the 2012 NSRA New Product of the Year Award. Rail Ryder took the prize in the $1001 and up category. The award was accepted by Rail Ryder owner, Dale Hofius, at the 43rd Annual Street Rod Nationals in Louisville Kentucky on August 3. Rail Ryder was chosen by NSRA member judges (magazine editors, car builders and non-exhibiting vendors) from a field of ground breaking new products entered by street rod performance companies.
Rail Ryder owner, Dale Hofius, states, “We are very excited that Rail Ryder was recognized with this prestigious award. Rail Ryder was developed because it is such a challenge to get your car into a narrow envelope and a bigger challenge to secure once inside a trailer. The most common phrase we heard used to describe the system during the show was 'SLICK, I wish I'd thought of that'.”
