Looking for low drag enclosed Trailer

I am trying to help a friend find a race car hauler trailer. He needs a small enclosed trailer that is very low aero drag, something to haul an MG-B (about the size of a Miata.) Needs to be low enough (about 6 feet maximum overall height,) to fit behind a standard Ford F-150 2002 model pickup. About 5 years ago someone came thru the Road Atlanta paddock handing out brochures for their molded fiberglas very aerodynamic enclosed trailers. Does anybody know of anyone making such a trailer? Any suggestions for a low height, enclosed trailer? I am posting here because I know there are several experienced racers on this site.

Trailex makes what you're looking for, but it starts at $15k...

I have a 20' Universal slope nose that I bought from trailerworld - http://trailerworld.com/Content.aspx?PageContentId=1630
It's more like 8' total height, but it tows very nicely behind my short wheelbase Dodge Ram 1500.

We use a 20' Featherlite. It's also tall like "jeremys" but it has the "V" front and is also low drag. Being mostly aluminum it is reasonably light. We only have an 8500 lb tow rating on our Lincoln Navigator so with the trailer being about 3000 lbs, we can put 4500 lbs of stuff in it. Featherlite makes many models. A 16' would work for the MG-B. Figure on about $9-11G's

Trailer world is only about 3 hours north of us, so my buddy is going up there and check out their slope nose fuel efficient trailer. If he likes it, he will order a custom built one from them. Thanks for the advice.

Tell him to ask for Wally. He autoxes in my region and is a genuinely nice guy. He spent hours with me going over the ins and outs of trailers.

BTW, I have absolutely no affiliation with TW other than being a satisfied customer.
