    Hi guys, one of my first threads on here so if its in the wrong spot forgive me.

    I am in the process of purchising a 6x10 7000lbs gvw dump trailer.

    Im looking at the downeastern or the car mate trailer.

    Down eastern $4700 w/steak pockets (no wait)
    Car mate $4700-5000 w/ steak pockets (4-6 week wait)

    What are your thoughts on these two trailers?

    I don't know anything on those trailers specifically but that gvw is low. Once you factor the weight of the trailer you can only haul about 4000 lbs. also steak pockets sound delicious

    Weight of the trailer is 1600-1700 when all said and done. I have a half tone right now(and always will as a back up, plan to up grade to a 1 ton this fall) and I want to be able to this trailer with the half ton.
