Looking to add an open trailer to my slowly growing fleet. Currently have 2 enclosed and a dump trailer. This trailer for now will be used for a mowing crew that currently has 1 rider and 2 walk behinds so im thinking at least 16'. The only other open trailer I've owned was my first 4x8 so I was interested to hear some opinions on open trailers- pros and cons and things to look for when purchasing. Also, is buying used an option or am I just asking for trouble? gvwr- 7000 or 10000? 2" or 2 5/16 ball? spring assist ramp? wood or mesh deck? any other info would be great. Thank you. I love my enclosed trailers but the truck that would be pulling this one is lightweight and the open seems like the better choice. Plus, I can use it for loading trees from the nursery and such when its not being used to mow, so I figure it will serve dual purpose.
