Here's a pic of my new 2008 Starlite 6.5' x 16' tandem axle (7,000 GVW) landscape trailer! I got it 2 weeks ago but only now have had a chance to put a pic up. It's awesome- so much easier than trying to deal with my other little trailer (5x10)- I can fit both my WB's on it with room for a ZTR if I add one after college. I also got a Prodigy brake controller for my truck. My truck handles it loaded up like its not even back there. Trailer was $2,600, controller was $250, all said and done was about $3,100 (with spare tire etc). Anyway- just wanted to share a pic of my latest investment in my company! :weightlifter:

Trailer looks great but I think you got shafted with that price a little bit. I just got the same trailer this spring for $1839 from Franklin trailers in Berlin NJ. Best of luck with it though!!

Nice

how are you keeping the mowers in position/ stop then from sliding around when you drive?

If I could afford and justify one now I would- after college probably. WB's work well on the properties I mow!

Back of my truck for now, until I can spring for some racks for them- works okay for now.

I tried to talk him down and called a few other places- Franklin trailer quoted me $2400 for it (Carry-On trailer 6'x16') but it would cost me $100 in gas just to get there. Plus this guy had it in stock and the axle on my other trailer snapped so I needed another one ASAP.

Thanks though- so much better with a big trailer!

Ratchet tie-downs for now- they keep them from moving at all- would like to get some faststraps at some point in the near future though.

that trailer is the exact same as mine. they are made about 15 miles from my house. Cannot believe they ship them and sell them all the way up there. it is a little more pricey up there I got mine for 1000.00 out the door two years ago.

The trailer supplier that I work with told me that his steel cost went up 65% last month. I have a feeling the days of $1,000 trailers are a thing of the past, even if you are buying from the manufacturer.

i just paid 2000 for a 77x16 lone wolf and it has 2 inch square tube rails, brakes on both axles, spare tire holder, the gate is 2 inch square tube, hand made diamond plate fenders, tie downs in between all rail supports. and i got a brake control at auto zone for 60. glad i dont live in jersey if that is what stuff cost up there.
