    I decided to take a chance at the solid side trailer system. I think it'll work out fine.

    Lists for $2782 as pictured and a spare tire. I worked magic and got it for $2213. Opted for the radial tire upgrade, extra $28 per tire, but should far outlive the cheap bias tires these trailers come stock with. Brakes on both axles, break away switch too. One of these days I'll finally put the trailer into service...

    Nice trailer, I think the fenders are mounted a little high but that is for sure a nice trailer. I would love something like that.

    Sexy for sure. Something that shiny needs to get some dirt on it.

    Hey let me know how that works out for ya. The company that builds those is 10 minutes from my home town. They used to own H&H trailers and they went under. They just started up again as hull trailers. I am just wondering about the qaulity. The price is right tho.

    It looks nice, but it looks like it sits kind of high and the rear gate is short. If you are going to be loading mowers they may get hung up.

    I figured they had some sorta affiliation with H&H. I also wonder about Doolittle? Anyhow, quality seems pretty good, but I would have liked to have seen heavier gauge angle iron used for the cross members, but what's there should work fine.

    And yes, the ramp is a bit short. I'll craft an extension, just as I had to do on my other open trailer. Not really a big deal.
