    I was wondering how many people are actually driving their Hellcat to and from shows and who would trailer their cars.
    I purchased a enclosed trailer to take my Hellcat behind my motor coach. Not just to shows but other places as well.

    Would love to have a collection I could baby but mine is a daily, Makes for a lot more work spit shining for a car show, but it gives me an incentive to keep it clean as possible all week..I do keep my mats in the trunk and only put them in when its parked for display. :D
    I'll take care of it as best I can and hopefully someday it will be a nice survivor but if not I will have extracted as much enjoyment of it as I can.
    The enclosed trailer is an awesome idea. I hope someday to retire and travel around in an RV. Gonna have to add one of those to my retirement list.

    I think a trailer is fine for your purpose to tote behind your RV but other than that it is meant to be driven. Just my opinion.

    I think you should tow the RV with your Hellcat

    i dont think your going to find too many who have 10 miles on their 9 month old HC's here

    its not a 40 year old car thats been restored to better than new condition and only brought out to show...its a brand new car meant to be driven and enjoyed

    a 10 mile HC may be worth $30k in 10 years.........doubt when they have made 25,000+ of them that it will ever be a car worth putting on a trailer an not driving it..

    Doc,

    What car you talking about, didn't you sell you Hellcat? I thought there was a deposit coming today on the car? Maybe I am confused.

    When I owned mine till paid in full I still own. And any one of my cars only time I trailer them is back and forth to the track. I drive all my cars.

    I drive mine as well. 1500km in two weeks. 70% of the rear tires have disappeared some how in that 1500km.

    I seen a 2015 Vette being towed in a open trailer in Myrtle Beech last week and thought geeze thats risky.

    I plan to take my car to as many shows in as many places I can and thought the easiest way would be behind my Moto Coach in a enclosed trailer.

    Not a show car?????
    Not sure if thats true. Any automobile can be a show car. New, old or antique a car can be what ever you want it to be. Driver, show car or both. A Hellcat can do either of those jobs.
    How many will take their cat to a car show and display even if they drive it there?
