I know the worst spring assist is not having one, but I have noticed while shopping around for a trailer there are several kinds. Which do you prefer? One was a factory cable system inside the square tubing..not sure how that holds up over time. Second was two springs at the bottom of the gate running horizontal. Third was a leaf spring underneath with a bracket attached that worked great. I like the fact the second and third have no cables, but maybe you all favor cables. As always..thanks in advance. I am spending as much time shopping for a bigger trailer than my ZTR. Seems like each has something I like and something the other has I like better!
