Also undecided on a 6x12 open trailer was thinking of borrowing my brother-in-laws (he rarely uses) only needs new fenders and jack vs. speeding 1500 on an Anderson brand of the same size. Any thoughts greatly appreciated
Being in the mountains need to remember what ever type trailer you use, be sure that it never out-weighs the vehicle pulling it. From personal experience driving on flat land, I would venture into a dual axle, with electric brakes on both axles. When you get in dire need of braking, (idiots on these "Fast N Furious" cars locking up in front of you),,,you will need all the breaking you can get. personally, after 5 years and several vehicle/ trialer combinations, I have switched to a 2007 GMC 16ft box truck. NO trailer. best move I have ever made.
