i now have two ztrs and a full time helper.i need to get at least an 18' trailer.i would like to get one with a sidegate to unload 21"trimmers and in the future,a commercial walk-behind.i was interested in a pj trailer but they dont seem to offer a sidegate.any other good trailer brands available in upstate ny that would have this option?also if i decided to go enclosed,what would it cost?would it be worth it in your opinion?any help would be appreciated!

I've had five Load Trails in my "landscape" lifetime. I think they and PJ are somehow related or something. The first 20' trailer I bought, I ordered it with a four foot side gate. The last one I bought, it already had one which I think is five foot.

I have to admit, I was surprised how little I used that gate but it is nice when you need it. Check out loadtrail.com.

Country Boy,

Im in the process of asking the same questions

I have a 6x12 need a 6x16

16 might as well be 18 then ETC

so now im at 20ft contemplating a side gate(The few people I have talked to said they dont use it)

7000# gvw or 10000( im swaying toward the 10000)

Im looking at $3400+tax for a Moritz

I have a 20' dean open trailer rated at 10,000 lbs it has a double gate at the rear and a side gate up front. I put 2 61: ztr on from the back gates and 48" walker and 21" push mower through the side ramps. When only the walker is needed just drive it right off with out having to move the other mowers.

Corn Pro is another hard core put together like a brick **** house trailer

I have been searching for weeks on the net and have seen a lot of junk

I would make sure it has good axles

brakes on both

split rear gate

Top rail tube not angle iron

I dont mind paying extra for great quality

the way I see it is spend it now or spend more later to fix it
