Well this trailer came from a place called Down to Earth Trailers in Baxley Ga and I couldn't be happier, paid $3971.00... 2 roof vents, 3 lights, aluminum wheels,electric brakes (of course), spare tire, very happy will be nice having the extra room, going from a 6X12 open trailer. The guy sells these on Ebay, said he did a $120,000 last month on there but if you give him a call he gives a lot better better deals, let me know and I can get anyone the contact info....

What thickness is the floor? How close are the supports underneath and in the sides? Is it a 1 piece roof?

town is called Baxley, pretty much in the middle of no where, the floors are 3/4" and not sure how close the supports are....it has a drop down axle that I think gives it a better pull from other trailers I've pulled

Looks good. I like the wheels and the lights.

How wide is that side door? Is the roof flat?

the door is a 36", as far as I know the roof is flat, I guess I'm not up on the different types of roofs, the price really attracted me to the trailer, it has the flap on the ramp also...a good value for $3971

I have been viewing his auctions for the Covenant trailer. There is another dealer on ebay in Bonaire, Georgia selling the same trailer.

Looks like a decent trailer.. good luck with it.

I didn't know we could promote outside sales on lawnsite....

Yes, that price is dawg cheap...This is why I am wondering of the quality of build. I have seen some bad trailers.

Hey Chad I promise you'll be happy with it, the reason its so cheap is because its straight from the factory, when you buy from a dealership its marked up atleast a $1,000 if not more, thats why i drove almost 6 hours to go get it....I looked at Pace Summits for almost $6,000 and I can hardly tell the difference

Not that that trailer is bad but a Summit is a very well built trailer. And 6k is way too much
8x14 10,000# spare rack 6" xtra height and 2 rolls of e track cost me $5200.00 last year.

$4600. base= 3/4 inch treated floor- 2 top vents- triple bar tongue - 54" tongue to pull behind stake bed - 3/8th plywood walls with extra wood at top and bottom. and the most important, 16" centers on the floor and the walls.
There are many ways to make a trailer cheaper and most will not show up till a year or two into heavy use. Again not saying that the one you got is bad, just need to know what you are comparing to.

from the pictures you can see that it is 24" on the sides.
I like the wheels.
