    Do any of you guys own or have any experience with a Homesteader Hercules trailer? Looking seriously at a used 2010 7x14 Hst model. Seems well made and has torsion axles, led lighting, 16 inch framing, and radial tires. Have been primarily looking for a Pace or Haulmark but am considering this one as it is like new and at a good price. Need some input and help. Thanks guys for any guidance.

    I think there good trailers .I too have been shopping trailers and I looked at how the frames were laid out and fit and finish is good on the hercules .A 7x14 tandem axle with ramp runs $4500 new here in Maryland .How much are they asking for the used one?The only thing I don't like is the rear of the trailer is not wrapped in aluminum standard.After a couple of years they start to show surface rust .You can order the trailer with the rear wrapped with aluminum for like $75 extra.I'm thinking about getting a 7x16 hercules with a 48"side ramp door and a rear ramp door as well and there looking around $5200.

    The used 2010 owner is asking 3600.00. He paid 4800.00 in March of this year.

    I wouldn't let that one get away.I know someone that has a 2005 model and no problems and has been great except for the surface rust on the rear.
