Check your shipping charges.Living in this area I know they all advertise the cheapest price until you check the fine print.

You can get a 7x16 trailer here (Mississippi), with ramp gate, camper locks on the side door ($75 extra), diamond plate on the front, bottom and fenders, tandem axle, with surge brakes ($300 extra) for $4000.00 plus tax if instate.....no tax here if from out of state.



I use one exactly as stated above.

Not all trailers are created equal. There is a reason some of them are pretty cheap as compared to others. This is not to say all of the "cheap" ones are junk but just be careful when shopping for a value priced trailer.

I paid $5600 for a 8x5 x 20ft haulmark trailer new in May of 2005. IMO, theres a big difference between the cheap trailers and expensive ones.

I paid $3000 for my 7X16 in April 2003. With all the extras, (stoneguard,side door, two vents, two lights, ramp door, brushed aluminum sides, brushed aluminum rear panels, chrome wheels.) All I added was Led lights all around. The only catch was I picked it up in Indiana. I like to drive so I made it a vacation.. Around here that trailer would be close to $7500 with the extras

Thats a good looking trailer for 3,000. What is the brand name and where in Ind. did you get it? I bought a 8.5 x16 Interstate trailer for 5,600 out the door here in Phx after 3-4 months use the warts are beginning to show one cable on the ramp has already come loose , the floor is spongy, you look at it funny and it dents, even the diamondplate rock guards are thin. You definitely get what you pay for.

As Premier said,
There is a big difference in cheep and good.

Make sure you get dual axel 7500 lb axels( upgrade) and change the centers for the walls, i think 16 inches from 24. 3/4 inch thick walls and floors.

I looked at enclosed trailers for a while. I had one speced just like BRICKMAN.
10,000 lb gvw
Most enclosed trailers weigh about 2500 lbs, 7000 lbs GVW. so 4500 lbs. So that doesnt leave alot of payload. If you have DOT or state police, make sure you dont overload. Thats all. Also brakes on both axels....

Just my .02 cents... and no i dont have an enclosed.. ( Tooo expensive @ 6,000 for 20x 8.5)

I am not sure where scaper got his from, but here is a link to a place that sells them in Indiana www.ct4s.com . I do not know if this is where he got it or not, as there are many places there that sell trailers. I have personally never got one from them but have talked to someone that has and he had no problems from the dealership and liked his trailer and the price of it.
