Here is what I have found so far

Some more prices
Hank Trailers (very nice) $3800
Doerflinger Motors Florence Alabama $1100 one brake $1250 two brakes, no box
Sundowner said they didnt sell open trailers
Polar Bear Ice in Clarksville 6'10x16 $819 +gate $100 + $100 per axle on brakes(they do no trades)

Midway trailers $825 + $175 for gate + $225 for brake box +$125 per axle for brakes

Midway has a good price on their trailer but it comes with nothing. By the time you add gate, brakes, box, it is 1475 with brakes on both axles.

Dont those prices seem kinda high for the brakes and gate? I can get the trailer here with gate for $925

Well I should have my trailer next week. I ended up gettin a 6.5x16. It will be paint yellow, brakes both axles, break away kit, and brake controller installed. He is also gonna cut my brakets off that hold my pulleys from my old trailer for the gate assist, and weld those on the new trailer. I think I ended up getting a pretty good deal. The price was $1350 with tax included. I also just ordered some racks from gridiron for my trimmers, blower, and water cooler. So I should be set for the season. Thanks for everyones input on this post.

A 14' wouldnt be much different than a 16' in price. Personally I would go ahead and get the 16'. I am glad I did.

I know you will pay alot more, probably 3 times the price you quoted before but Hank builds an excellent trailer, I bought a JJN and have had nothing but problems, now have a Hank trailer and wish I woulda bought it in the beginning, he is a good friend of mine and was always on me about buying one of his trailers and I would not turn loose of the money, now I am glad I did. The number above is to the shop, but he does not sell directly anymore, if you want to buy one in M'boro contact Ideal Trailers @ 893-9387. JJN is now a dealer in the Boro, do not know the number but it used to be Ed Smith Equip. Go with the Hank, you know the ole saying you get what you pay for.....
