    Getting another trailer to add the fleet of trailers but considering if I should spend the extra 2K for 8K axles being 16K trailer at 22 ft long bumper hitch trailer or get what they have which is 7K axles being a 14K trailer.

    Hauling mowers, skid, utility tractor.

    Don't know about your plates. But, ours are rated on weight. And, that 2000pds puts us in the next category. About an extra $100 a year.

    Plus, do you need the extra capacity? If so, why not just go to 10,000lb axles? If you're gettin a big boy, max it out.

    Also, What are you towing with?
