This a good trailer?

Tomorrow is my wish list day, I'm going to take a tour of the trailer place and make a note of what I want so when its time all that needs to be done is a check signed.

This trailer is listed at $12,485. new

This is a 25' trailer, 20' flat and a 5' dove.

For a extra 800 bucks you can get 25' flat and a 5' dove. This is probably what we will get, 5' extral trialer for 800 bucks and be a lifesaver!

I'll take plenty of pics, I've heard this is a huge place.

The Kaufman weighs like 2000lbs more then this one and they have the same specs. Either the oak deck boards are water logged or there's right much more steel in the Kaufman.

I wish people would put prices on the web pages.

hahaha I didnt even look into it that far. This one by me probaly would not be practal for you but man they are sweet. They have a transfer tank option that goes between the frame rail that might be something sweet for you guys if you are pulling it with a tandem.

Nice looking trailer, it even has the sissy steps on the sides.
The only things to really look for is the spacing of the cross members for the wood deck and how many screws they used, and the most important is how well the ends of the deck boards are secured to the end of the deck where the dove tail is, I'm popping boards up because my deck is weaker than I thought.

Why not get a tri axle so you can move the big excavators on it?

Or the quality of steel is garbage, and the welders aren't very good at their jobs. Weight doesn't always equal strength.


But hey atleast you can haul the volvo late at night.
