Looking for reviews and info about Griffin Dump Trailers

I'm thinking about to get a new dump trailer and came across this company called Griffin. I've never heard of them and can't seem to find any reviews, good or bad. I'm looking to get either the 83"x12' or the 83"x14'.
If anybody has any input or experience with this brand, I would appreciate the heads up. Here's a link to griffin's website for specs.

I bought a 12ft Griffin dump from a guy in Rochester that advertises on Craigslist. Very happy with the trailer. I have 1 full season on it and have no complaints. I paid $5500 and then added a tarp for like 2 or 3 Hundred + tax. I also have a 12ft Cam for my other crew and i think they are both good trailers.

Cool thanks.. Is that JPR Service...In Holley? I'm looking to drive from Syracuse to this place. He's got a 12' on there for 5500 and a tarp kit for 250. I like the build and specs on this trailer.
How are the ramps that come with it? Are they heavy duty and long enough for a lesser angle when loading eq?

Yes JPR in Holley. Its about 2 hrs from Syracuse. Ramps are good, we have had my small machine (bobcat 751) on there and they worked fine. If you call him he will tell you all about the trailer, I would buy again from him.

Great! Thanks.....Sounds like it might be a good fit for us if we go new. I emailed JPR via Craigslist ad and in his response he mentioned that he has a used 14' dump for 4950.... I'm not a huge fan buying used, but every now and again it works out good. Or you're taking on someone else's headache. Great thing about going new is the guarantees and warranties.
I'll give a call out there for some more info....

Oops.... That was supposed to be $4495. New tires and serviced.
