A few pics of my truck and trailer.




I just picked up the trailer about 2 weeks ago and made up the 1ft removable sides. They're usually off but they come in real handy for mulch.

Well I don't do weekly maintenance, it's either moving a skid steer/mini ex or moving bulk material...perfect trailer for my needs.


For those that asked, it is a Big Tex.

Thanks,

How much did the trailer end up running you? I have been looking at just doing that instead of just buying one of those landscape trailers, cause of what you said above, you can't haul a skid-loader or such. What's your mpg hauling you trailer? That sure is a nice rig there!

The dealer had it up for ~$3400. Another dealer had a similar trailer for $2800, so I got him to almost match it at $2900.

With a bobcat behind me I'm lucky to average 9. Without a load I think about 14.
