Rig of the Month: 2020 Continental Cargo 32-Foot SS Race Trailer

As the official trailer/motorcoach dealer of Dragzine, Flying A Motorsports’ extensive lineup of new and used motorhomes and toterhomes, race car trailers, stacker trailers, car haulers, and cargo trailers will be highlighted here in a monthly feature, Rig Of The Month.

For the new year, Flying A Motorsports is highlighting a 32-foot Auto Master SS model from Continental Cargo Trailers. Continental’s background is building solid and fully customizable trailers. Cape notes their Auto Master trailers are a well-built no-nonsense line with plenty of options for every level of customer.

Inside the heavy aluminum cabinetry, the concealed electrical service is located beside a winch plate with cable access opening. A Boss stereo system and provisions for electronics charging are also wired within.

“The Master SS line has very good bones with the same axles, wall thicknesses, and frame layout as models from higher-end manufacturers,” Alan Cape from Flying A explains. “It is a more mass-produced trailer compared to some other manufacturers who build their trailer on a one-by-one basis. Relate this to a reliable Chevy Caprice, but not a BMW (laughs).

This brand new trailer has screwless aluminum side walls made from .040-inch thick aluminum. It also features a one-piece aluminum roof. The aluminum walls are insulated for comfortable work in all weather.

LED light technology is used throughout the interior and exterior. The new lighting technology makes working on your car at night easier in the pits. The trailer is also braced and wired, ready for installation of a roof air conditioning system.

The industry-standard Dexter axles are 6,000-pound models set-up in a spread axle layout. Options such as Aluminum wheels are featured on this unit along with a 5-foot extended tongue that combines with the spread axles for improved pulling stability.

Continental's own upper and base L-shaped cabinets use heavy hinges and corner bracing and are matched with a bright aluminum workbench surface. The floor span and ramp door are covered in rubber coin flooring while all of the interior walls are carpet-lined.

Black rubber coin flooring is utilized on this trailer, and protective carpeting protects the interior walls around the entire interior perimeter. The carpet extends three-feet up the walls.

“As you can see by the list, these Continental Cargo Trailers have a long list of equipment features within them,” Cape continues. “These are affordable and ideal for the 99-percent of racers who aren’t running a national tour. For the racer who competes within a couple of state area, you can have a good, cost-effective workhorse.”

Features found in more expensive trailers are included in Flying A's inventory of Continental Cargo trailers. An extended tongue, triple 6,000-pound axles featuring a spread layout along with LED lighting and an insulated generator area are just a part of this loaded options list.

A 24- x 24-inch drivers’ closet extends up to the ceiling height for storing all your personal items and safety equipment. The Boss brand stereo system also features an amplified subwoofer built into the base of the driver’s closet.

For power, this trailer has a 50-amp electrical service installed. The trailer is prepped for a generator with an insulated generator compartment covered by a 36- x 36-inch vented generator door along with a generator slide-out for easy access.

“The Auto Master line is a sturdy standard trailer that can handle the miles regionally,” Cape describes. “If you want to travel within a couple of hundred-mile radius regularly, this will be a great option for a sportsman racer. Continental stands behind its products and services them very well for their customers.”
