if you have the time you could try and get a shop class to build one in my high school shop class there was always tons of them and you just paid for materials

Go far away from the bay area, they are cheaper elsewhere. Go look up in Orland, Chico, Redding, Reno,... You will end up saving a few hundred

When you need a semi-custom trailer there is a point where it is either cheaper and/or better to build one from scratch or buy a cheaper model or used one and modify as necessary. Like when you want drive over fenders, high clearance, long ramps, 6000 lbs axles with big brakes etc... I tried to find one I liked and it ended up being quite expensive--almost the price of a cheaper enclosed trailer (which would not have held up for long) so I built one. Wanting a good heavy duty triple axle enclosed right now but can't spare the $$$ right now. I have a buddy building a 40ft triple axle with 10' ceilings right now--man thats a lot of steel and work!

Has anyone bought one of these? What size are they, length and width? Anyone have there phone number? I checked with Reeds in Pengrove, they have some good quality trailers around $1900 - $2000+.

When you say it is cheaper to build do you have a good source for inexpensive new axles or are you talking about using used axles. I passed up some free mobil home axles a few months ago and now am regretting it.

See if you can get the spec's on that $1300 trailer in Concord if you make it by there this weekend, brakes, axle capacity, width, length and weight if possible. Almost sounds too good to be true... <IMG SRC="smilies/bounce2.gif" border="0">

ok you asked.

interstate west

enclosed v nose all sport 8inches taller than
stock
2 side walk in doors whith pull out steps front ramp for atvs
heavy duty rear ramp electric fans in two
vents optional loading lights.
electric toung jack. 4 5000lb tie downs
conected to the frame.
2 tourk flight 5000lb axels these are the
axels that do not use leaf springs so
if you get a flat you can just remove a the
tire and keep going.(done this)

cost if you pick it up at factory about
$8000 I looked in to building some thing
similar but cost wise it was close enugh
that I bought it from the factory.

used? nothing available whith the options
that I needed.

I know it sounds like a lot of money to spend on a trailer but I also use it in the winter
for snowmobileing and all year for search and rescue operations.
