    What kind of equipment do you wanna pull, because a 16footer can get small quick.

    You can def. find a 16footer for less than 2,000.00, i got a 18footer for 1300.00 without even looking hard.

    I'm going to be hauling a 36 inch Gravley walkbehind and a 48inch scag rider with the clamshell bagger. They fit on my 12 footer if i have the 36 sideways but the bagger rubs against the back gate. I'm in the process of selling my 12 foot bri-mar and would like to get something of the same quality. Ive been looking at a lot of trailers and the cheapest i can find is $1650. What brand trailer are you guys getting for less? Quality?

    You need to check with your state how much weight you can carry before you must have brakes on both axles. You may need to get brakes on both axles.
