Actually, truth be known, three thousand dollars buys a FULL Aluminum 12 foot long single axle trailer.
By full aluminum I mean even the floorboard.
Forget enclosed and double axle trailers, all those things are good for is eating up profits.
They make the truck get HORRIBLE fuel mileage for one.
Two axles means you'll go through close to three times the tires.
These things are all you see in Europe, with their costs they can't afford steel trailers.
The initial cost is high but after that, the single axle aluminum trailer costs far less.
An aluminum trailer is a whole thousand pounds lighter than their steel counterparts.
That's just for starters, the floor never has to be replaced because it's not made of wood!
This one in the picture weighs 600 pounds empty.
They hold about as much as their steel counterparts.
