    I'm looking for another local dealer for a 6 x 12 open trailer with a tool rack. I was going to buy from a local Hustler dealer, but its a bit steep. Any locals know if any in St Pete/ Tampa area? Thanks, I'd appreciate any help.

    Just crack open the phone book and start calling. Theres hundreds of trailer dealers around here I would suggest buying from one of them not a mower dealer.

    go to Weld Rite in Tampa off of hillsborough ave. YOu can get a 16" open landscaping trailer that is really nice.

    I got one there a few years ago and loved that thing. I have since got an enclosed....

    I'm not exactly sure how far you are willing to travel, but I recently purchased an enclosed from Rentz Trailers on HWY 19 in Hudson..I got a great deal on mine, and I am sure you can get a great deal for what you are wanting...good luck

    Dont buy it from them. I wouldnt buy anything from those yahoos. Dixie trailers on us 19 is a great place to go. You will get a great trailer from a good guy (Jim).
