    I have a car trailer that i use to mow with every once in a while when i bag grass. I hate using it because I don't want to tear it up. I usually use my 5x10. I am thinking about getting a bigger one but i am having trouble finding trailer dealers. any ideas in SW MO???

    Thanks guys!

    Check your local Yellow Pages.

    trailer manufacturer sites i've seen have a locator feature to point you to the closest dealer.

    Home Depot now handles small trailers...open and closed style.

    as stupid as it sounds it is actually hard to find trailers around here..new or used! we have 2 dealers here and they are all really expensive for no reason. 7 x 16 open..no brakes, ramp, or even a tongue jack...for $3100? come on!

    If they are that much then it would pay you to find a dealer 1000mi or ever 2000 mi away and go get it. Around here a 14 X 6.5 is $999. Go to Texas most trailers are made there anyway.

    Drive down to Texas, you won't have any trouble finding a trailer. I have never been to Tulsa, but I bet they are abundant down there as well.

    I agree, Home Depot here in R.I. actually has some pretty decent open trailers and at a good price.

    Tennessee and Kentucky have a crap load of trailor dealers. Seriously my buddy moved down to Tn. and i went down to help him move and they were everywhere all kinds of people makin them and sellin them. I bought my first trailor down there and saved a lot of cash. around here there are not many dealers at least cheap dealers. only cost 2 tank fulls petro there and back and that was it.
