    Its a 6'10x14 ft trailer with LED's, a front ramp that folds down into the pick up bed and a 4 foot rear ramp. I paid $1,600 for it last week.

    I always think anything over 12 ft long should be double axle but looks good.

    That's a marginal deal I got my 16ft open for $1500. Came with 2ft mesh sides 4ft, gate trimmer rack pressure treated 2x10's and a lifetime warranty.

    Ya it may have been in ur area. But in my area it was a good deal. They wanted 6'10x14 footers for almost 2k new with no front ramp, LED's or 4 foot gate.

    I've never priced a trailer with a front gate like that, but I really like that idea. I bet that's pretty handy. I would like to see it with tandem axles.

    That's a nice trailer but would be a lot less here in Ga. I paid $1400 for mine and it's an equipment trailer with dual axles and brakes. I can haul my 4200# New Holland on it or a skid steer. Also, single axle trailers won't haul much weight-they'll be all over the place with a couple of riders-I agree it should have been a dual axle over 12'.

    i agree with you i have a 6'10X12 and with a nice load on the trailer its hard to stop i think that it should be double axled i agree with what your saying.

    Like the others, it seems a little high to me, however, I also like the front gate !!
