I looked at PJ and Big Tex and for the same trailer the price was about $1,000 more I think the Moritz is a better quality trailer. with trailers you pay for what you get.

Hey man, not trying to make you feel bad or anything, but I can get a 21ft full lanscape trailer with diamond plate floors, gate lift assist, racks for everything, side gate, 6 ply tires w/spare, powdercoated, bulldog hitch, led lights, 2 brake axles/pretty much the nicest you can get in the bumper pull version for $3150. I just can't believe what you guys have to pay for trailers, but I guess part of it is that Big Tex, PJ, and Maxey are all made about 50 to 100 miles from my house. I guess some of the elevated costs are shipping. I got my 31ft v-nose in my pic for $6000 brand new 2008!!

Roadmaster, seems like a pretty well built trailer, Waco Bill was my first choice, but they were $10000!!

Anyways, nice trailer more than I'd pay for one, if you can afford it why not...Joeyeah same here, i was gonna ask, but thats more than any open landscape trailer ive ever seen, yet theyre always your normal 16-18footers and 7k not 12k which makes a bit of a difference.

In general, ive seen trailers going for a lot more recently than even this time last year new. 7k 18' open landscape trailers i saw last spring for $2400ish, indeed this is your mack daddy of open landscapes though, i wouldnt spend 4k on it though since its still open and i would mainly use it for lawn mowers only, for another ~3k you could have a 20-24' 10-12k enclosed

yeah that has a lot to do i think. Ive been quoted for the SAME down 2 earth 20' 14k trailer, $2,800 from a dealer in TN and $3,800+ anywhere around NJ. Theyre made in GA, so shipping from GA to TN or GA to NJ shouldnt be $1,000!

youd never touch anything that big for 6k in the east coast up here. My 24' carmate in 06 was $9,400. Granted i had a lot of nicer stuff like adj. hitch, 3 bar extended tongue, 12k frame/wheels/tires, led lighting, more than standard ATP on front, chrome front corners, 1 piece aluminum top. A basic thrifty hauler Haulmark would be 7k with a 10k rating, thats about what a 24' starts at in jersey.

Ill probably be driving to TN one weekend to get my new trailer if its going to save 1k in costs up here plus tax on that!

Forinstance.. http://www.deandetrailers.com/trailerdetails.asp?ecategory=equipment&ID=30

This place is local to me. I saw this trailer this weekend, figured, heck, looks "cheap" i mean not heavy duty, didnt have radial tires, wasnt top of the line so it should be 2-$2500 right? haha, look at their price! i almost fell the fawk over online when i looked up what they were asking for it! Most of their prices are descent too for this area. This trailer isnt as nice as the Down 2 Earth 20 footer 12k rating ive seen for $3600 around here.

Here in GA is a trailer for $3,570, its a 22' total length gooseneck Down 2 earth, weighs over 4000 lbs empty!, 14k weight rating. Ive been quoted $300 MORE for a shorter trailer thats NOT a gooseneck, wtf?

My somewhat local place in PA says they have a 26' gooseneck in stock by this brand $5,400! How is it $2k for the same thing and only 4' longer?

lol, there is a guy from northern colorado driving to Paris, Tx to pick up his landscape trailer. He is also going to demo a Bad Boy while he is here. I didn't understand why he was driving so far till he told me much they sell the same trailer up there for. He is getting an 18ft landscape decked out for $2700 here, and up there he said they go for over $4000. Same brand and everything...lol.

If you guys want a great trailer for a great price, PM me. They build all of their trailers and they are great. I bought mine 2 weeks ago and love it. Its a 6x12. They are well worth it. Just call them, tell them what you want, and you will have a price within a few minutes. Just PM me and I will give you the number.

I am having a 20ft open interstate trailer built this winter for around 4,000 with all of the options I wanted. It has 2 6k axles, rear ramp gate strong enough to hold a skid, and a side gate also. The paint and trailer both have a 2 year warranty. The lights and all wiring are sealed also. I thought it was kind of a high price, but the trailer is actually meant for hauling skids so I figure with me using it for mowers it should last a very long time.

For anyone who hasn't seen a Down 2 Earth trailer, I'd say look into them. That is who we bought our 6X16 landscape trailer from. Picked it up at the Baxley, Ga plant.
http://www.downtoearthtrailers.com/mypage.html?pg=Landscape shows what it looked like except it is black and has a spare tire carrier on the passenger side. Another nice thing is that Polar services the axles in our hometown in Ohio. And the axles are center greased to continually flush out the old grease when lubed.:usflag:

That is the exact same trailer I looked at last year but it was a 18 footer. Moritz makes a top of the line trailer. Expensive yes. But you get what you pay for.
