    Don't know if ya'll have Load-Trail or PJ trailers up there. They're made in Texas. I've had five and they've been great. Google Load-Trail for dealers.

    The best around here is Pequea and Big-Tex.

    You don't need the Best trialer to haul mowers everyday though

    I use a Big-Tex, very happy with it. Although if someone built an aluminum landscape trailer I'd look into it.

    I still like Hudson. One thing you'll see about them, is when they say their trailer is a 3 ton for example, that means you can put 3 ton on it. Most everyone elses 3 ton you have to subtract the weight of the trailer, and that balance is what you can carry on it.

    I've consistently overloaded my 3.5 ton Hudson for over 3 seasons (albeit by only a few hundred pounds) and it shows no sign of stress. I will however be taking care of this issue soon.
