    I am getting prices for a new trailer, here are the quotes fromt the place i called this morning.

    6*14 tandem axle, four wheel brakes, brake away kit, split rear gate, pressure treated wood floor, $2395

    6*16 all the same things for $2495

    In this case i would get the 6*16 as it is only $100 more but just checkin on how these prices were. Im still waiting on a call back from another place and will get prices on the same things. ill post those prices when i found out about them. How do those first prices sound?? Thanks guys

    Why no buy used out of the want ad, or truck trader?, youll save a heck of alot more money. Heck you could get a 6x16, for 800 in the want ad. just my opinoin. Good Luck

    Hey mike those prices seem right, I got quoted $2,600 for a 16ft big tex with the landscaper package. Get the 16ft never can have enough room.

    go with the 16'. You can never get one too big. Did you get a quote from MB Tractor? They just gave me a real good price on a 5 Ton Hudson skid steer trailer. I have an 18' Hudson for mowers -- it's real nice.
