    Hey, what do you guys think of this trailer?

    I want to get this trailer as my starter trailer and upgrade later on! I'll be using this trailer to load my lawn mowers, trimmers, shovels, blowers, just the basic stuff for maintenance for now.

    I won't be hauling any stones or anything heavy like that yet!

    I personally wouldn't buy it you can get a good 5-8 landscaping trailer for a good price .

    Alpine, those trailers are very light and not made for everyday use. Look at the thickness of the steel. They are homeower trailer with a very limited lifespan.

    Ive got one and it has come in very handy. Ive had it for over 2 years and havent had a problem from it but I havent really loaded it down, I have other equipment for that, and I dont use it every day.
    I like its adaptability. Being able to extend the tongue comes in useful when carrying my kayaks or canoe and with the front and rear gates folded down, it will carry two four wheelers end to end. With all the sides on and up, it will carry mulch, dirt, straw and anything else that a flat trailer without true sides wont contain.
    Like the others have said, I wouldnt consider this a heavy duty trailer by no means, but it is very versitile and Ive easily gotten the $600 or so I payed for it back out of it.

    That looks like the kind they have at the local Home Depot.
