    I need a new landscape trailer for next season because I am tired of lugging ramps around for my old trailer. I need a trailer that will hold my current Gravely 34Z, a pushmower, and a 60" ZTR that I may possibly get next year. I have checked out trailers at the local tractor supply stores, but they seem very cheaply built. Check out this link.
    That trailer is beautiful, but it cost $2700 for the 12'. I don't necessarilly need one with built up sides, but it would be nice. I will be pulling this with an S10 so brakes would be very helpful. If anyone has one for sale or any suggestions please post. I'm willing to drive. Tell me if trailers are really cheap in your area.

    I do not know anything about those utility trailers but John's seemed to be a decent company to deal with.

    I live 30 minutes from Big Tex's Mt. Pleasant, TX factory. I'm not sure if you can buy them factory direct or not, but that might save some cash. Here in NE TX there are trailer manufactures all over the place. Most of them will customize to your specs.

    For some reason, Texas and Oklahoma have alot of trailer manufacturer's. For a used or slightly used trailer, once you decide on spec's, would be equipmenttraderonline.com. A trailer manufacturer here in our state is Big Bubba's Trailers......I don't know if he has a website or not. People from Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Az., and New Mexico drive up here to get one of his rigs.....they are built tough, no corners cut, they are built fast and custom if you want them. I have two of his trailers....one for my track hoe and one a car hauler/skid steer hauler.
