My new aluminum trailer.

Picked up this new Aluma trailer about a week ago. Its replacing a much heavier steel trailer. I ended up getting a 6.5x12' with a GVWR of 3000#. It pulls really nice, and looks nice too

Can we say expensive what did the trailer cost I imagine it wasn't cheap

One thing about aluminum is it gouges easy your probably would want some thing on the deck as a wear deck like a thin sheet of rubber.

One thing about the aluminum you wouldn't have to worry about the trailer rusting out the axle will probably rust out before the trailer falls apart.

Ya know, who cares how much it costs!

I wanted a lighter weight trailer, that wasn't going to rust, but could still handle two full sized Z's. I wanted a deck that was low to the ground, and this one fit the bill(14in). I also liked its appearance as it looks really sharp with Exmark's on the bed. I am pulling this with a 1994 Dodge Dakota with a 3.9L. This picture below shows the back end of the truck and my old trailer that I replaced with the one above. I paid $1,850 for it.
