My new Trailer

Just picked it up today. Its 16ft x 7ft inside diameter.
The back gate either lets down as ramp gate or swings to the side for dumping.The floor is split at 9ft in the front and 7 in the back . The back 7 ft is a dump floor raised by a 1 ton winch located over the rear gate. clearence is 6ft from floor to winch. 4ft sides all around and 5 ft side gate in the front. What ya'll think?

Nice trailer. Do you really get business with your business name? I would say it is easy to remember.

$3700, it doesn't weigh much more than a regular 16 footer.

Indy, yes I do get good business wit that name. Everyone says its catchy and easy to remember and it fits our rural area since we are near a large sweet potato growing area..

Great looking trailer, but what do you plan on dumping out of the trailer, leaves, grass, etc.....??? My point is, if you dump off the rear part of the trailer, how are you going to get your mower(s) back on to the front? Run them over and make a big mess...?? Just wondering, that's all....

Now THAT is the neatest thing I have seen in a damn long time. That trailer would be PERFECT for people that run Walkers, put the mowers on the front and the clippings in the back. Do they come in 20 or 22 ft? Hmmm...I am sooo getting one of those!

Only thing I might change is to have a hydraulic hoist instead of the winch, so that way you dont have to watch out for the cable when you are loading it. Also would make the part in front of the axles be as wide as the axles, so that way you have a little more room up front (enough to have a Walker on there without having to fold up the deck. Hmmm...maybe once I get a little better at welding, I might make me up one of them.
