Feedback needed - Trailer loading winch
#11
Moving rolling weight takes a lot less power than dead weight. To move dead weight you should probably double the weight of the vehicle. It depends on how much excess capacity you want and how much you want to spend. I've used a 3500 lb. winch in my trailer for many years, to move rolling weight cars.   https://www.autow.com/winches/trailer-winches.aspx

Ended up going with the 9K Harbor Freight winch and their receiver mount bracket.  I mounted a bumper receiver receiver mount through the floor and around the center frame support for my triple tongue.  Worked out well loading and unloading the cars on Sunday.  Duty cycle on the winch is a little low 60% but the pulls should not be to long as the trailer is 24 ft.  I will attach some pictures shortly
