    Just bought a new 14 foot 14k lb dump on Friday. Anyone else have one of these? Reviews, good or bad? Ive never heard of them.

    I went down to the trailer place for a Cam Superline. There I came across 3 or 4 load trails at the end of a row of 30 Cams. When I took a look at them I didn't want the Cam anymore. Thing is built! It was the same size and weight rating but everything just looked beefier. Had a 20k power down scissor lift, 24" sides, 10k jack, plus all the standard features and options of the Cam.

    I was thinking I might be willing to pay a few hundred more for it and found out it was $800 less.

    Load Trail is a very good brand. You'll love it.

    Funny you ask for advice and reviews AFTER you buy it.... hehe.

    You might want to look into the DOT laws in NY. here in PA you need a CDL for any trailer over 10,000 LB GVW

    yeah. I needed one and it seemed to show quality so I did buy having never heard of them. Hoping for good reviews! haha.

    Evan, I looked up the CDL requirements for both you and I. They are the same and we dont need CDL's If we tow 14K trailers with 1 ton trucks. Your GCWR cant exceed 26000 lbs. So a 1 ton has a 10-11000 lb GVW + 14,000 GVW trailer = 24-25000 GCW.

    If we want to tow these trailers with say, a top kick, we need cdl's.

    Here is your local info
