    I'm looking at a loaded sure track 14ft dump trailer for 64000. That sound like a good price? Any experience with sure trac?

    I've also found a 20ft big TeX 14k equipment trailer for 3700. Both are new.

    Anyone have any experience with them or have recommendations?

    Thanks

    $3700 sounds about average for an equipment trailer in my area. Big tex builds some decent trailers, I wa looking at buying one but found a better deal on a new/used trailer

    As far as the dump trailer, what size axles? Does have it a trickle charger built in? What kind of tailgate?

    Overall it looks like a good trailer from what I can tell in the pictures.. I am curious if the twin cylinder will lift more. I've loaded my dump trailer(single cylinder) to the point it wouldn't lift :laugh:

    I don't know what you do with yours, but with my dump trailer we haul old concrete, use it as an on site dumpster. It gets the hell beat out of it.. I've replaced the lights in it, twice. And they are down low on the fenders Those wouldn't last a day :laugh:

    sounds like a good price on the equipment trailer. I run a big tex 10pi 18' dual axle equipment trailer for my everyday mowing and stuff. its got a 10k gvw. i think I paid 5000 for it or something like that. then my dump trailer is bri mar 714lphd. its a 7x14 low profile, heavy duty 14,000lb gvw dump trailer with 12k drop leg jack. which I have had loaded with oak, 4' high and it jacked it up no problems and dumped it no problems. it dumps up to 45 degrees. twin piston. ppg paint. mine has 10 gauge steel. which is a little stronger. I wouldn't waste your time with the 12' dump trailer. 14' all the way. even that seems a little too small at times. but my truck wouldn't be happy towing a 16' dump trailer loaded weighing in at 16-18k it would struggle bad up way too many hills around me. I would get the biggest dump trailer you can afford and your truck can safely tow...oh and my dump trailer was 9500...

    You can get a nice pj for around 7k. 14gwrw. 10 gauge floor and side. Scissor lift, and ramps. The only negative thing I can say about mine is the paint sucks.
