    Around here, Mr. DOT man would redflag you.

    What's the weight rating for the trailer? AND in MN you're required to have breaks with a breakaway switch.

    WOW ;)

    It DOES look red necky!

    Now all you need are some big ole air horns, lighted bumper guides, and mudflaps with the Ka-Rome nekid ladies on them.


    As for trailer brakes. Usually single axle trailers have under a 3500lb GVWR and are exempt from state inspection and brakes.

    its a 3500gvrw. i'm well under that with the z @ ~1150 and the wb @ 500 and trailer weighs in at about 750 i believe.

    I'm looking at a 7x16 big tex trailer, i can't decide if it'll be too large for the dodge though.

    I would use ramps and load the walk behind on the trailer then up the ramps onto the truck. This way you have the mower on the truck and ztr on the trailer.

    I think you will be fine with a 16' trailer and your Dodge. Just make sure the trailer has brakes.

    I'd love to know why you all think its illegal? the loads are all secured with 3" straps. it ain't goin no where.

    anyways, i went and looked at a Big Tex 60SP. 16fter. tandem w/ elec brakes on one axle. $2289+tax.

    and yes, I'll fab my own side gate.
