Im looking to buy a new landscape trailer that will hold my wb and my new z. I was looking at the 6x12 trailer with a side gate that carry-on makes. Just wondering if anybody has one and if they are junk or not. This is the trailer-http://www.carry-ontrailer.com/product/6x12ATV_OT.htm

I have the exact trailer you are talking about. Search my threads for pics. I works OK, but if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't buy it. It is made for ATV's, and it is kinda hard to load mowers onto because of the height of the trailer, but if you can find a good deal on a trailer like that, go for it.

Carry one makes a decent trailer......like enforcer says....its made for atv's and thje gate is a lil short which makes the angle kinda steep and the mower doesnt like to load as good

From what I have seen Carry On trailers are cheaply-made junk. Get a PJ trailer, they are about the BEST out there.

Carry-ons suck. If you really want a list of why I can give you one, but I can tell you I'll never buy another one.

Yea its from lowes. its 1500 but i think ill go with something else after hearing this. I really like the fact of the side gate so the wb can be loaded on the side and the z on the back so i dont have to pull one or the other off to use one it

I have one good thing to say about carry-on. the vertical supports on the rails are pretty strong. We have ran the mower into them more than a few times and it just bent the edge a little bit. but thats the only good thing I can say about it! the pins that hold the gate closed, broke when we hit a bump. I believe that happened to either side too.

ok, i hate my carry-on trailer. it is only a year and a half old and i have had to repaint it, change out the hubs, replace the coupler, and replace the flooring. and let's not forget the pins that hold the gate on snapped driving through the city.
