    It is a alright trailer nothing too special about them. The only bad thing is mine has a wickid bend in it. From front to back it is bowed up I would say at least 6", just from loading it over time. That is why I hate them

    I'm looking to get a 18'+2dove equipment trailer from them for $3608 shipped to CT, its a 14000 gvwr i plan on using it for my 9200# bobcat 335 currently i am hauling it with my 14000lb gooseneck dump trailer 16x7. The price is definately right for a new trailer but it seems almost to good to be true and everyone knows how that saying goes.

    Ya I have the same exact one I have. I bought it about 6 or so years ago. I think it was around 3200 to 3500 somwerearound that. Don't get me wrong it an alright trailer but if I did it again I would spend the extra money so it last.

    This a company we have another trailer from. They are a little pricy but, I have friends that have had them well over 20 years and they are still in awsome shape.

    I was looking at them. The prices are good. They say its because of the direct thing but the HD package adds a grand and its all stuff that the better trailers have anyway.

    I ended up buying a Cam Superline ramp. 8 ton.
