Does anyone know much about this trailer company in southern Kentucky? I'm seriously looking at the 6.4 X 16 for around $1700. Whats the good, the bad and the ugly on these trailers? Looks pretty solid to me!

Here is the link:
http://www.gatormade.com/trailers/trailerpages/16ftdualaxelutil.php

Here is the link to the trailer I really want, but a little too much for what I have to spend.

Let me know what you all think. Thanks

Huh, that link you posted looks like a good trailer, I like solid sides though. How did you find the price? I'm interested in their enclosed trailers.

I have a Load Trail dump trailer IMO you wont find a better built trailer. The welds are perfect and all steel part's are machine cut or stamped not cut with a torch, hit with a grinder and welded on. It pulls and back's grate. Looking at the two you are comparing I would not want a trailer with 1' side's. The load trail is expensive but look what your getting. 2' mesh side's, lock box, side ramp,and a good heavy duty back gate. By the way that trailer looks it will be with you a long time. It might be worth waiting a bit longer until you have the money than buy something not as good.

Also check out PJ trailers, I just bought one of their dump trailers last pring and it's great. Built like a tank so I can only assume that the rest of their trailers are built well. I still think either of those trailers you posted the link to will get the job done just fine though.

cCall the factory and they will direct you to a dealer near you or google gatormade trailers.

I have both 16' and 14' Gatormade trailers. The quality is great with a wrapped tongue, high quality wood, and neat welds. You absolutely can't beat the prices from the factory in Somerset, KY. Its worth the drive.
