I have had two, the first one I had already purchased a trailer, then I bought the serpent express cover and framework used from a forum member. I welded the pockets on the trailer and installed the cover and it worked out just fine, Towed great and was an excellent trailer, I sold it to another forum member and friend when I purchased an aluminum trailer. He has used the trailer many times and towed it to London Ohio from Boston MA last year.

The second one I purchased has worked out excellent as well, I purchased the trailer then purchased the cover from Larry Johnson.( Mr. Serpent Express) Larry took the measurements of the trailer and I sent him some pictures and he designed a cover and fit it to the trailer. I bolted the pockets on this one because it is aluminum and installed the cover. I towed it to London Ohio from Boston MA

The first one I owned was towed with a 2001 S10 with a 4.3.v6
The second one is towed with a 2010 GMC canyon 5.3 V8.

In my opinion these trailer’s are perfect for a roadster, and the service from Larry is very good.


My new trailer has ramps that are stored under ther ear of the trailer and slide in from the passengers side, My old trailer they slid in from the rear. I prefer that they slide in from the rear. Slideing them out the side is a PIA and if you pull in next to someone there is generally not enough room to slide them out.

This is a characteristic of the trailer itself, not the Serpent Express cover.

I would not hesitate to purchase another one if there was a reason too. It is a great value.
