Toronto Area Trailer

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know anyone that builds custom trailers in the Toronto area? I am looking for an 6x14 single axle. I want someone that can make the trimmer racks and blowers for it as well.

Thanks,

Jon

Happiest day in years was the day I got rid of my 6 x 14 single axle.... replaced with 8 x 16 double axle....much better to pull

Im using a 6.5 X 16. Is the 8 foot wider trailer a deck over? Can't imagin an 8 ft non deck over, im already as wide as the lanes. :hammerhead:
In an 8', you have wheel wells inside the trailer , so the trailer itself really axle isn't any wider than it is on a 7'. I originally was looking for a 7' wide, but the sales guy pointed that out to me; my original concern was being too wide for residential streets. So... an 8' trailer doesn't track any wider than a 7'... both widths are wider than a truck though, so you absolutely have to get extension mirrors of some sort on your truck so you can lane change safely.

I have a 6x16 and I really don't need anything that big or need breaks. All this will be used for is light mowers. I don't really need dual axles and it won't be much weight. I really think that a 6x14 will be perfect for just holding equipment.

Thanks,

Jon

There is a guy on Bathurst just north of King Rd that builds trailers and racks. I think it is called U-pull Trailers, his trailers look well made. You can also they the Kooy Bros, they have excellent prices on trailers. I bought my 6.5X12 JDJ landscape and my 6X10 enclosed trailers from them. You may have to wait a couple of weeks for a JDJ but they are good trailers. Most dealers sell racks or if you don't want anything too fancy you could buy a welder and make them up yourself. They money you save on the racks would almost pay for the welder. If you are not carrying much weight I would stick with a single axle then you don't have to worry about the MTO hassels like annual inspections for the truck and trailer and C.V.O.R etc.
