    What is the best 12'-14' open trailer on the market. Already have a 14' enclosed, 10' dump trailer and a open 6'x 10'. Need to replace the 10' POS Carry On.

    The wire mess on the tail gate is coming off and needs to be welded again. And I'm on my second set of light it 1 1/2 years.

    Are you on factory wiring? I found that to be the problem on mine, it was the wiring in the conduit that was actually welded to the conduit and shorting out. I rewired my whole trailer with heavy duty wiring and LEDs with a 7-pin plug. I haven't had a problem with the metal on the gate though. I did bend the entire gate this summer though with the gravely, and them little pins to unlock the gate are a major PITA too when they get slightly bent

    I have a H & H open trailer that is very well built given it is a 20' tilt-bed car hauler type of trailer but I love this trailer. When I bought my 2004 CC 2500HD Chevy I hauled it home on the trailer with my 2000 EC 2500 Chevy and this trailer trailed so nice and for that reason I Like H & H trailers

    What rating on the trailer for your use? I really like Hank trailers from here in Tennessee and Kaufmann seems to be pretty good.
