SE-126 First Flat-Top Serpent Express
We haven't had a drop of rain in three months, but for the first trip to a car show with my SE it poured rain most of the way. Of course, the AMX stayed nice and dry! I was remembering that I almost canceled going to a car show last year because it was threatening rain, and at the time I only had an open trailer. I'm r

Just wanted to send you some pictures of my finished trailer upgrade project, featuring SE-94 retro-kit.
The trailer started as a twenty-year-old steel open trailer with only a partial deck (runners for the vehicle). I used Drymax OSB to enclose the center of the deck, added all new brakes, and replaced just about everything else on the trailer (including new LE

"Just towed my new "Serpent Express" trailer back from Tennessee last weekend... although towing empty at 75-80MPH it pulled like a dream. The FFR loads very easily with the low ramps, tie down is easy once you get it figured out. (Tie hoops welded onto the front of the 4" tubes makes it a snap) I am extremely impressed with the quali

Sept 11, 2004 "The SE towed like a champ. No problems at all and the Jeep is a great tow vehicle. The '04 has a 5 speed automatic tranny and I didn't use OD lockout. The vehicle is very smart and down shifts automatically to 4th or 3rd as required. We got 15+ mpg with the A/C on running in 100+ degrees of heat. Not bad. Of course 250

Aug. 9, 2011: "This is the "Lang Cooper" we took to Monterey in a Serpent Express. It is sitting next to Peter Brock's "Brock Coupe". Peter designed the body in 1963 or 64 and it is basically a re-bodied "Shelby King Cobra" I finished the restoration of the car for Peter in 2006. After the car ran at Monterey it was shipped to it's new owner in Europe."

Aug. 8, 2011: Here is a picture of our 1963 Watson Roadster (Indy Car) in my Serpent Express just prior to leaving for Fontana in April." Value? "About $250,000.00 it would be more but it doesn't have much history at Indy. The Lang Cooper is worth about $750,000.00."

"I love my Serpent Express! I bought the steel model with wood floor. I found the trailer tows extremely well and get better mileage than the hard-side I used to use. I was towing with a short bed, standard cab Chevy half ton pickup (4.8) and never had a problem-even over the Grapevine into L.A. The Serpent is easy to load and unload and kept my car b

The tow vehicle is a Ford F150 Super Crew 5.4L and it will tow all day at 75 mph. The trailer is lightweight and even with the Cobra on board it tows like a dream. This was the first trip for this SE and it was outstan

"I own a "Serpent Express" and really like it for several reasons. It is light weight while still covering my car. I can remove the cover and haul my Ford 8N tractor as well as other stuff. My Dodge 1500 only has a 318 engine but can still pull the trailer and car with no problems. On the way to the WSCB in Reno there was a 20 to 30 MPH head wind and

"Back in December I was planning a visit to Ogden, UT. So I figured, Hey, I'm already out there! Might as well pick up a new trailer while I'm there. No sense driving all the way back empty, and it would save me some shipping costs. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
So, I gave Larry a shout and ordered one. But I wanted a few features t
"I picked up the trailer on Sat, and parked it in the hotel parking lot for a few days. Monday morning, we awoke to 5" of new snow. We drove in snow and ice to a few miles east of Evanston, WY. No problems at all. I hated to see my shiny new trailer covered with road slime, but that's the way it goes. The rest of the trip was mostly clear.
