Its a 6'10x14 ft trailer with LED's, a front ramp that folds down into the pick up bed and a 4 foot rear ramp. I paid $1,600 for it last week.

I always think anything over 12 ft long should be double axle but looks good.

That's a marginal deal I got my 16ft open for $1500. Came with 2ft mesh sides 4ft, gate trimmer rack pressure treated 2x10's and a lifetime warranty.

Ya it may have been in ur area. But in my area it was a good deal. They wanted 6'10x14 footers for almost 2k new with no front ramp, LED's or 4 foot gate.

I've never priced a trailer with a front gate like that, but I really like that idea. I bet that's pretty handy. I would like to see it with tandem axles.

That's a nice trailer but would be a lot less here in Ga. I paid $1400 for mine and it's an equipment trailer with dual axles and brakes. I can haul my 4200# New Holland on it or a skid steer. Also, single axle trailers won't haul much weight-they'll be all over the place with a couple of riders-I agree it should have been a dual axle over 12'.

i agree with you i have a 6'10X12 and with a nice load on the trailer its hard to stop i think that it should be double axled i agree with what your saying.

The trailer itself looks ok for general duty. But due to the fact that it has a front gate as well it actually weakens the trailer. That entire trailer is built out of angle iron. I use to work as a wholesale mgr. for a trailer mfg. & we would NOT sell one like that without using channel. Mainly for the simple fact that people WILL over load it. Even tho that front gate may be handy it still is a weakness in the design. So be careful & inspect for cracks

A little pricey for that trailer, I got a brand new 6.5x16ft double axle for right under $1000. in Ohio. I wouldnt like the single axle on that long of a trailer either.

I just noticed that you are in Ohio, Is westlake anywhere near Enon? Enon is where I bought my 16ft. Its actually a truck dealer but they sell brand new trailers too. I would clean that trailer up and try to get your money back and drive to Enon.If you need the name of the place PM me and I will get the info. to you.

Be sure you stay on top of the tire pressures! The trailer is overloaded in the pictures and the tires are always the most vulnerable part. I agree with others that trailer needs to have dual axles.

Thats pretty sad your new trailer is overloaded with 3-4 yards of mulch on it!! What mowers are you going to try to haul with that trailer? I hope you dont have huge heavy mowers because that trailer will not handle the weight. I thought the DOT regulations state anything over 12ft open utility trailer must have two axles? I have never seen anything over 12ft with a sigle axle? I kinda think you got ripped off and whoever made that trailer designed it for VERY, VERY light duty use, You should have picked up a tradin post magazine before buying, they have tons of trailer ads in there( especially in OH) and for what you paid, you could have gotten a much heavier duty trailer!

Yea i agree with everyone else, cool design, but it should be a double axle. You should have looked on lawnsite before you bought it also, you could have gotten alot more trailer for that price with only a 3-4 hour drive. I wish i could have purchased a much bigger trailer, but i do not have enough room to store it.

What's the weight capacity on that trailer?

Looks verrrrrrrry strange being that long with a single axle.

Hey Mike,

Where in Ohio did you find it. I'm kind of been looking for something for next year.
Thanks,
