    I just picked up the trailer about 2 weeks ago and made up the 1ft removable sides. They're usually off but they come in real handy for mulch.

    Sweet rig man. Have the same truck as you too. There are alot of people switching to those types of trailers.

    Well I don't do weekly maintenance, it's either moving a skid steer/mini ex or moving bulk material...perfect trailer for my needs.


    For those that asked, it is a Big Tex.

    Thanks,

    How much did the trailer end up running you? I have been looking at just doing that instead of just buying one of those landscape trailers, cause of what you said above, you can't haul a skid-loader or such. What's your mpg hauling you trailer? That sure is a nice rig there!:drinkup:

    The dealer had it up for ~$3400. Another dealer had a similar trailer for $2800, so I got him to almost match it at $2900.

    With a bobcat behind me I'm lucky to average 9. Without a load I think about 14.
