Junior, I took a look through the link that Dually provided and found this dealer in NC, not sure how far they are from you, but it's worth a shot to see if they have what you need. http://www.kraftsmantrailersales.com/Gooseneck/

Good luck!

I called kaufman back today and if I step down to a 18ft with 2ft dovetail they have plenty in stock. But no 20+2 like I want..

Its hard to rent. If I can talk a guy into it I am just gonna borrow his gooseneck until mine comes in..



He tried to sell me a tilt trailer because it was in the length I wanted, I am just not to up on the idea of a tilt. It seems like its just more to wear out and break. any of yall had any experience with them?

I would never buy a tilt if you carry more than one attachment. I like being able to situate attachments on the trailer so I can just come to the side and grab it. Hard to do that on a tilt

One of my buddy's has a 9 ton with 8' stationary that he pulls with his 4300. Can carry plenty of ctl attachments and no slicker way to haul a mini. No way i could ever sell my deckover, but if i hauled a mini every week i'd consider a second trailer.

yea I dont like renting either, I guess what im saying is get the trailer you want and dont rush into it. If you want a 20' dont settle for a 18' cuz youll kick yourself for it.

take your time and get what you want nothing worse than jumping the gun for something different then kicking yourself later for not getting what you wanted in the first place

Yeah me too. But I've never talked to anybody that's actually used one besides a salesman...

Jr. this is where I got my enclosed trailer. No complaints about how it worked out. They have goosenecks also. Best prices I could find. I'll buy you dinner if you pass through to get one.
