    SEEMS LIKE THE PRICE IS STEEP FOR A SINGLE AXLE, ALSO 6 FT. WIDE IS PRETTY NARROW FOR A 16 FOOT LONG TRAILER. IF THATS ACTUALLY A DOUBLE AXLE AND HAS BRAKES ITS A FIARLY GOOD DEAL. I'M NOT SURE WHERE YOU ARE, BUT IN N.J. YOU COULD BUY A DOUBLE AXLE 7 X 16 WITH BRAKES FOR AROUND 1800.00 ANY DAY OF THE WEEK.

    Be sure to get brakes on both axles and at least 6'6" wide preferrably 7'.If its not that wide you 'll never get a 72" on it or a truck if need be,even a 60" with a bagger will be tight on a 6'6" because of the hose.Price isnt a bargain considering how narrow it is and only 1 brake axle

    Here in NC I can buy a 16x7 trailer with a 4 ft tailgate/ramp, tandam axle with electric brakes for 1375.00.
    This price seems to be the NORM, rather than the exception.
    Keep looking, it won't be hard to do better than the quote you gave.

    Try to get a 5' gate. There is a big difference. The gate angle,when down, isn't as severe. The mowers won't "bottom out". With a 5' gate you might want to get a split gate.
