    I'm not that sharp on pricing trailers but I would say 2000 or so. It looks like it would work great! Whats gonna be pulling it?

    I think you'll be paying more than that. Big Tex is a premium brand and priced as such. Plus that particular trailer has a lot of steel in it.

    I'd guess at least $2500.

    I do not necesarily have to go with Big Tex, but I don't know who else makes trailers like this. I love the look and design of this one though. I have been looking for a new truck, but for the time being I would attempt to pull this with my S10. It will be a little dangerous if the roads are wet, but if it has electric brakes I should be able to handle it for a year or so I would think. My S10 does fine pulling my 7'x10' I have now loaded with all my equipment including 1 ZTR. Does anyone know what you need to get put on your truck to hook up electric brakes like those on that trailer. I need to get a trailer big enough to fit 2 ZTR's on and a push so I am thinking a 14' but I may be able to get by with a 12'. Thanks for any help.:)

    I have an 88 F-250 that I use to pull a trailer that is very similar (PJ trailer from texas, VERY solid. The older fords have soft brakes. That trailer put s a load on that truck even with the diesel. I have used a friends S-10 to pull my 6x12 PJ with 32wb, 52Toro Z an 2 comm 21's. Nothing like the smell of burning bakes in the morning....
