    Hey guys, I am new to this site and have just started in the buisness. I am going to buy a 16 foot open trailer this weekend and I have a choice between square tubing and this angle iron stuff, not much difference in price. Any pros and cons on either?

    The angle iron trailer is $905.00 with a four foot gate. The square tubing is $960.00 with a four foot gate.

    Buy the square tubing for sure, much stronger than the angle.

    Buy the square tube trailer. Much easier to add on racks for your strin trimmers, blower, Etc.

    Get the tube trailer, it's a lot stronger. Also, better check that 4 foot gate. It might need to be lengthened to 5 feet. I had to lengthen mine and I've seen where a lot of guys had to also. Make sure the tongue is made out of CHANNEL, not angle. Hope this helps.
