    I need a trailer for my JD318. I am going back and forth between a tilt bed and mesh version w/ ramp. Any ideas. The cost of the tilt beds seem to be better, but I don't want to hassle loading and unloading all the time.

    Wood floor, with fold up mesh gate. Mesh (expanded steel) floors suck and will stretch out over time.

    Wood floor tilt. Both of mine are wood floors and I beleve there better then the mesh. I've never had a mesh, but my stuff doesnt get covered in road grim like others.

    I did weld my tilting one so its a none tilt model now but that was from having a load shift, causeing the pin too jam.
