    I am going to be getting one of the trailers in the subject line this spring. This will be an addition to the one I have already. Really meant for the addional w/b and Walker.

    Who has what model of these and why did you purchase it? What was the cost? Guys and girls from New England, where did you buy it?

    I have looked at Agway and their trailers are pretty inexpensive and they have many different types for cheap $$$

    We have a 7x16 made of tube with a dove tail and trimmer trap racks. It also has a side gate. We paid $1700 for it last year from Lone Wolf trailers. We are out of room on our trailer, our next purchase will most likely be a box truck. If you are planning on hauling a walker and walkbehind a trailer with side gate would be great. You could load the walkbehind on the side gate and put the walker behind it, so you would not have to unload a mover mowers around. You need to check our www.BigTex.com there trailers are more expensive put a built the best.

    7x14, us cargo, enclosed, ramp gate, side door. 5k.
    Did the open trailer thing too long. Keeps elements away from equipt. if you dont put it in the building after work, like rain and thieves. Nothing falls of either

    thanks

    I like the 6.5x16... easy enough to move around, and the added 2 feet really help...

    I'm not sure that this is the correct site for the trailers but I do know the ones you are talking about. Every Big Tex trailer I've seen looks VERY well built. I have a 6.5 x 14 Trailmaster and it is VERY well built also.

    I'd recommend the biggest trailer your truck will properly and safely haul as long as you need the space.

    Thanks for all the help.

    It's www.bigtextrailers.com .

    I think I am going to head to CT and check them out from the guy that I have purchased my other trailers from. The Big Tex has many different offerings and will probably end up with the 16fter. Storage isn't an issue for me as I have plenty of room for all my equipment indoors. No need for the enclosed.

    I am figuring right around 2000-2400 for the 16fter. Pequea is another one that I looked at the other day. They seemed very well built as well.

    i agree buy the biggest Trailer u can.. u can always use more room.. i have and 8 x 20 and im already about out of room.. lol. spend good own your equipment. so many guys by cheap stuff. you can always write the stuff anyways. just dont over spend and get into debt. most businesses fail because of to much debt. it is balance. only u know what u can afford.
