Other than that looks good. Congrats.
Nah a trailer like this would cost more that that new here. My buddy bought a used 18' Big Tex trailer for $2600 last spring. This was the best deal i could find in my area and have a trailer that can be used tomorrow not drag it home and fix a bunch of things. Trailers cost more in the northeast because we aren't close to where most are manufactured in Texas and the midwest.

yea, dont leave a regular sized toolbox on the trailer, when you try to back up in a really tight area, it dents your truck pretty good.

Welds are extremely poor quality, almost all the welds on the latch stystem for the gates have broken and had to be beefed up. The wiring had to be redone last year, not quite sure why it ever broke, cant say its definetely the fault of the trailer, but it definetely not the fault of the users. Brakes have held up well, and it pulls straight, recently the hub bearing mysteriously worked itself loose so we had to take it apart and tighten it. Overall I'd rate the trailer a 6 out of 10, not the worst but not the best, oh and the trailer is maybe around 2 years old. If you're just holding onto it for now until you get an enclosed you'll probobly be fine, I actually plan on getting an enclosed this year too. But yeah, it wont be a carry-on. Best of luck with it this upcoming season.

I've heard the same thing about the other trailer i have yet i havent had any problems with mine. Truth of the matter is there are so many brands and many of them aren't all that great. I appreciate the heads up and will be careful. I don't run large heavy ZTR's, just a Walker, midsize walkbehind and maybe Stander and i'm the only one who will be pulling the trailer. As of now everything works on it and i plan on just having it until i upgrade to an enclosed trailer.Thanks.

Thanks. I'm not keeping the box in the truck, just wanted to see how it looked on it. My dump insert will be going back in soon.

I will get it lettered in the near future, hopefully in the next month or so. However i'm going to do very little lettering on the truck. I'm go to put fullsize lettered signs on the dump insert sideboards.
