Well the 5X10 trailer that my wife bought for me 4 years ago got stolen the last week of May. Dad had borrowed it and had a plastic storage shed that he just bought sitting on it. It was parked in his front yard. It was there when the went to town and gone when they got back 2 hours later. We filed a police report and I had it insured so the Insurance company wrote me a check.
I was waiting for the trailers to go on sale again at TSC before I bought another one. I friend pointed me to a local company that was cheaper than TSC sales price. I purchased my new trailer yesterday. Its another 5X10 with wood floor and a 3500 lbs axle. Its a much better trailer than the TSC I had. I did not notice until after I got the new trailer home, it has 13 inch rims. My old one had 16 inch rims. Looks wise I like the 16 inch better. Yesterday when I was pulling it home, it seemed to me that the truck was down shifting on hills more with the new trailer than with the old one. I dont know if that is because the new trailer may be heavier than the old one or if the smaller tires dont do as well as the 16 inch ones.
So does trailer tire size make much difference when pulling?
