The cost on the trailer was in the $1300.00 range. All prices though should be gotten through capt devo. The was built by M&M Trailers out of MO.

I'm from the princeton area, do most of my
work from anoka to crystal for all of you out
there thats 30 to 50 miles away, but when
you start out in this buisness you have to
take what you can get. hoping to get more
accounts in my area soon.

What area are your accounts in?

Make sure you keep it clean! It won't be under any warranty if aint cleaned everyday. ;) Not cleaning it everyday is very irreresponsible. LOL (inside joke)

I think I'll be giving the captain a call when I'm ready for my next d/a trailer. That is a great $ esp. w/ brakes (both axles??). The only thing I would be willing to pay xtra $ for would be the 1/2" thick expanded metal for the gate, and make sure they use c-channel and not angle iron. The riders sure do kill the gates. Both my carry-ons had to get the gates re-screened after 6 months. The company puts screening on the bottom of an angle iron frame, then weldson the support runners. Cost to burn off screen, grind down framing and re-weld twin gates on each trailer was almost $400. Never again!!!
Unfortunately, due to my very tight driveway, I had to go w/ the 6X and not 6.5X width trailers.

Bob,

That was with brakes on one axle. DOT only requires one and there is not that much wieght on a lawn equipt trailer to really need brakes. Now, if you were to order it with two 5000 lb axles, i would get brakes on both as you would be moving into a trailer capable of carrying a skid steer or something of that nature.
