    Was wondering if any of you guys have heard of Bendron Trailers? I found them on ebay. They are from Georgia I believe. Seems to be a good price for a 16 ft but most of the time in my experience you get what you pay for.

    Any Georgia guys out there?
    Thanks!

    I'm going to GA to pick one up in 2 weeks. Look, there's only 2 or 3 actual main trailer manufacture's most places just slap another sticker on it. Yes you have to be careful what you buy but in most cases its the same basic trailer. The one I bought is a Proline and it looks like 3 or 4 other ones I looked at. Some had more or less chrome, some had different lights etc but it was basically the same trailer minus the add on's.

    What size did you buy and how much did you have to pay for it?

    I got an 8.5x24ft V nose with a few upgrades. I upgraded to 5200lb axles, radial tires instead of bias ply, a radial spare tire, and DOT reflective tape along the entire bottom. Grand total was 4910.00 That same trailer where I live would be close to if not over 7k
