Also anyone have anything good/bad to say about PJ trailers?
I cant say much for the gate upgrade, as I didn't know there was such a thing. I've owned 2 PJ l/s trailers and I have a PJ dump trailer. I've had great luck with them, no major complaints. Common problems such as keeping the lights and brakes working (never had a trailer that didn't give me wiring fits). I like the removable side rails on the landscape trailers. The wire mesh on the rear gate has a tendency to break welds with the constant loading/ unloading of the mowers on the un-braced sections, I've added a few lengths of angle iron to support the outer section of mesh, though it adds a few pounds to the gate when lifting it.
Hope it helps, good luck with your decision.
