Hauling Style – Redcat 1953 Chevrolet COE Custom Hauler & Trailer

Redcat Racing has always marched to the beat of their own drum, and for that we are thankful. The company keeps churning out new and innovative RC vehicles in genres that are fringe but oh-so-fun. From lowriders to drifters, Redcat tackles them all. Their latest few releases break new ground in both the fun and cool departments.

Meet the Redcat Custom Hauler, an RC vehicle transporter that effortlessly blends stunning realism with remarkable functionality. The attention to detail in its officially licensed 1953 Chevrolet “COE” body is truly exceptional. It flaunts a two-tone paint finish accented by just the right amount of chrome touches. The interior doesn’t disappoint either, with meticulous detailing that includes a color-matched and painted dashboard.

But this rig isn’t just about looks; it’s incredibly functional too. Designed to carry 1/10-scale RC vehicles, this custom hauler is LED-ready, accommodating up to 18 LED lights for that extra touch of realism (LED lights sold separately). The Heavy Hauler Bed is thoughtfully designed with an anti-skid surface, wheel chocks and four tie-down straps, ensuring your precious cargo stays securely in place. The adjustable loading ramps can be conveniently stored when not in use, and the easy-load battery box is cleverly concealed within the bed.
And the fun doesn’t stop there. This exceptional hauler opens up endless customization possibilities, inviting you to get creative. It’s lift-kit ready, allowing you to drop the hauler (lay frame) for some serious style points. This is a ready-to-run vehicle, so to get this beast up and running you’ll just need a battery and charger, as well as some AA batteries for the transmitter.

Under the hood you’ll find a scale front drilled and dropped I-beam axle, a heavy-duty solid rear axle and the included Redcat RTX-4C 4-channel radio system with adjustable EPA on all channels. The Redcat Custom Hauler isn’t just about style; it’s packed with substance for all your RC adventures.

Speaking of style, you may have noticed that the COE is seen here towing Redcat’s Custom Trailer. The Custom Trailer is a highly detailed 1/10-scale car hauler trailer that’s a true-to-scale replica for transporting your 1/10-scale vehicles. It comes with a hitch designed specifically for use with the Redcat Custom Hauler, but if you wish to use another vehicle to tow it, a universal tow hitch is included as well.

This trailer is built to handle vehicles weighing up to 20 pounds thanks to its robust steel C-channel frame rails, heavy-duty leaf springs and heavy-duty scale tires. Other scale details include a functional storage box, a rotating jack stand, extendable loading ramps, adjustable wheel chock blocks and tie-down straps. You can conveniently stow all these accessories on the trailer when they’re not in use. What’s more, the Custom Trailer is equipped with fourteen LED-ready light buckets, ready for you to install an optional LED light kit for added flair.
