Official thread for posting pics of your trailer WITH prices...

I havent seen much of anything about trailer pricing on here. I figured I would start an official thread (if I can do that )

Anyway, try and post pics but if you dont have them be sure and give a decent description of it.

(I forkin hate how they don't have prices on their web sites )

16', wooden deck, 83" between the fenders, diamond steel fenders that can be driven over, double 3600# axles (one w/ brakes), 225/75r15 tires on steel wheels.

I paid $800 for it from a friend back in 1998, and it was 1 yr. old then and he paid $1250 for it custom built (wider).

I dont' have any pictrues of the trailer yet cause I just got it yesterday.....but anyway here are the details.

18' x 7' Ridgeline.....16' flat with 2' dove and a full 84" inbetween the diamond plate steel fenders that are tough, they didn't even budge with the 42's roled over them. Preasure Treated wood decking, fold up ramps, two 3500 pound axles with brakes on one axle. 15x6 steel wheels and radial tires, also a break-a-way box to make the DOT happy. And made with 6in. channel.

When I called to check prices I was quoted $1750. I went down there and measured the deck on a 16x7 ($1650) and it was only 82", so I asked if he could get one a full 7' (84") wide.....so he called the manufactor (about 50 miles away) and checked, they said that they had just made one 16' flat 2' dove and a full 84" wide, hadn't even painted it yet. So he told me that he could have it there the next day for me to check out, and asked if I bought it what color would I want it, so I told him black to match my truck. So I came back the next day checked it out, it measured a full 84" inbetween fenders and brand spanky new.... The owner came back out and said if I wanted it he would sell it to me for $1400, so I paid the man and hooked it to the truck. Also, I will probably take it back to him to have brakes installed on the other axle.....he charges $150 all parts and labor installed.....the cheapest I've found to just buy the parts and install myself was $184.

10-4,
Justin

So far so good. I've only towed it a couple of times, and I don't have the brake controller in my truck yet, so it's hard to tell for sure how it'll be with a load on and with brakes.

I thought I'd hate it immensely, but to be honest, I don't mind it enough to change.

I've towed a similar trailer recently. Unloaded it's a really rough ride. Loaded, it's not that bad- will feel a bit of a clunk when accelerating from a stop.

Gooseneck, low bed, 30 ft. of deck, two 7K torsion axles w/12" brakes, 8 lug wheels, diamond plate fenders strong enough to drive on, ~82" between fenders, wood deck, ramps store under rear behind doors, two jacks at front, breakaway brakes, all sealed lights. Had a friend build it all new and he did it for under $4K. Have a truck camper up front, and 19 ft. of deck left for toys. Really like how it turned out. The low deck keeps the camper way lower than if it was in the truck bed, which really cut the wind drag. Plus I don't have to load & unload that damn camper anymore.

I'm working on it. Don't have a digital camera, but I did take a regular pic of it months ago that my wife hasn't gotten developed yet. Then I'll have to see about getting it scanned... I'll remind her to get it developed.

It does make a great setup if you take regular weekend wheeling trips. Sometimes I just take the Jeep, sometimes I'll take the Jeep, dirt bike, son's quad, and a generator/welder, all behind the camper. Other times, a bunch of us will take a load of dirt bikes somewhere and split the fuel cost, makes a cheap trip. A couple months ago, I had the Jeep, two dirt bikes, and a friend's Kaw Prairie 650 quad back there. That's about 13,500 lbs. of trailer, camper and toys.

Hey Todd, would they have let you pay extra for a second coat of paint? The one thing I've noticed about a lot of new trailers is that the paint starts lookin crappy in a hurry.


I like the idea of this thread, but if you make or sell trailers for a living, please refrain from pimping your goods

I don't make them, or sell them. I just work on them. Does that still count?
