    I had an 18' trailer, sold it an had been using a 16'x77" trailer. We couldn't quite fit everything on it safely.

    This trailer is 83" wide and hold everything nicely.

    Bull dog hitch, flip up jack, brakes on both axles, brake away, and easy lube axles. It's built solid!

    I have one also....the same one as Phishook, but with brakes only on one axle. They are manufactured in Texas. Mine was $1400 with tax. If I had to do it all over again I would get the 7000 lb. axles, both with brakes and the 2 ft dovetail.

    Very well built trailer.

    I was wondering how the railing of the trailer does for the dove-tail. Does it follow, (angle down) when the dove-tail starts, or does the space between the frame, and floor become greater ( the top rail go straight).

    Thanks for your information.

    That is a very nice trailer, I have a 83" by 16' trailer and love the width of it.

    I am not 100% sure, but I think it angles down.

    I have a 12 footer from PJ and I am going to pick up my new 16 footer with 4 foot sides next weekend.

    They are built real strong and look good.

    $1,697.00 with tax, $200 off origional price. Sure, you can find trailers cheaper, but they are built cheaper too.

    Found it east of Indy. But it was brought up from TX.

    It angles down.

    I'm going to get some ply wood and go up to the rail all the way around for mulch and soil. I would like to put a side gate on too, but who knows.

    here's the side gate I built for mine....about $100 in material. This was one of my winter projects last year.
