You should look into double axle, it pulls much straighter! And its probally safer if you get a flat tire.

From Alaska to Oklahoma and back...about 8000 miles.



But I might have picked up a few other things that made the trip worthwhile.

I've never heard of anyone needing a smaller trailer. I'm on my third, and I thought I was doing something going from a 7x12 open to an 8x24 enclosed. Shoot that 8x24 is slam packed from front to back, and there is still stuff in my garage!

I like my trailer, but its too wide to go in my garage. A 5' x 14' would fit just perfect. Actually, I want to keep my 6.5 x 16 and find a place to store, and get the 5x14.

Get a hold of capt devo, on this site, in south east Iowa and make a deal. i have attached a photo of the one I got from him last week. you can not go wron with his prices and quality, also he has trailers in the size you are talking abotu. He saved me almost $800 over what i could get one here.
