    I have a CAM-Superline and love it. I use it for hauling horse manure. It is in use every day of the week. Works great and has held up really well. The only problem I have had is that the jack stripped itself out on the inside, but it was a defect and partially my fault. The battery also dies after only 14 months, but it gets used a lot. I have no clue what the prices are now, but I bought a 2005 6x10' with a 12.5K GVW lowbed for around $4700 out the door. I know the prices have gone up a ton in the last few years because of the steel coasts and everything else.

    Loadtrail 6.5 x 14 goose neck, 14k. Came with built in ramps to load equipment. Hauls a 3130 Kubota or T250 Bobcat great. I paid $6k.

    We use all Brimars. We have a 14/102 dump and it has held up very well. We also have a 14/102 low profile open trailer that we tow bobcats with. The Brimars are a bit more pricey but Im pretty sure that 8K for that trailer is too high. Look around and I bet you can find the same trailer for less. Good luck.

    We put tall sides on our dump and can fit close to 10 yds of mulch on it but thats a wider trailer than you are looking at. Look at BriMar's dealer locator and follow the links to their dealers and check out inventory. I think I just saw the trailer you are talking about recently at a dealer's site in NY. A new 2005 was on sale for like 6995. Ill see if I can find it.
