sleepsontoilet Bought the 2014 Dodge last June but couldn't keep the CELs cleared, so it got replaced with a 2015 Ford.

Nice set ups there. That double decker trailer sure looks like a Witteveen - Raalte trailer if i'm not mistaken. I picked one up from a guy that moved here from Holland a few years ago. Sweet trailers.

vrtical Just got the flatbed on last month. 98 1-ton, 454 Vortec, auto, leather interior. Sold off the 03 CTD and bought this. Put a wad of cash in my pocket, got rid of truck payment and could still afford a 1-ton. Maintenance is much cheaper now too.

My toyhauler has excessive tongue weight. I figured it was designed like that in case someone loaded the trailer when it wasn't hooked up to a truck to prevent the tongue from lifting. Not ride

Back Woods It does ride pretty smooth. Always kind of wished it had a bagged third axle for going down the road though. It can eat up a 17.5 trailer tire in no time, the stock Michelins are tough but we've had to pickup some misc tires on the road (double coin ) that grenade before the rubber nubs wear off. Planning on going to a 235/15 tire over the 215/75 for some better load capacity at some point. He was somewhere in Ohio and hit a pothole that bent a truck rim so bad it was locking up the seat belts, with load G tires at 120psi. Most of our tire issues happen in Ohio due to their constant state of road "repair" You could say there is some decent tongue weight, my guess would be 4500lb or so.

Back Woods No idea what the tongue weight is but it is quite a bit. The top compartment holds hay (22 bales) and the generator is at the very back.

Back Woods It has 3 windows but we fit 4 horses no problem. If we ran smaller horses it could handle 5 easily. For what we do 6-8 horses are needed. Usually we run two rigs on long runs and split the horse load. Going off the grid takes a lot of supplies to support horses, dogs and 5 people.
05-22-2015 03:43 PM
87manche IIRC it also has dog kennels in the middle.

Action Fab That's one hell of a trailer for only being a 3 horse! Dayumn.
