In the D-160 saga I had told yall about my wife was going to get us a new trailer after that adventure. Well She did it! After I got the WH running she said "look at this". TSC has there 5X10 trailer on sale and she had a 10% off coupon. We load up the kids and away we go. I no longer suffer from trailer envy!

There's no such thing as a free lunch. It's only a matter of time before she will reveal the price you will pay (again and again) for that trailer. Women are devious creatures with very long memories.

Congrats on the nice new trailer and the understanding wife! I got a trailer last year and it's sweet not having to worry how you will get stuff home.

Nice trailer! And you better keep the wife too!

I have the 4x6 version. Wish I'd bought bigger, but it works.
Only issues I've had with mine is:
they use those snap splices and the "push the wire in the back" lights. Every so often I loose a light and have to clean the contacts.
On mine the spring floats in a bracket on the rear. I hopped a curb once avoiding another "driver" and the spring came out of that bracket.

For the money, they're great trailers and follow well. Mine prefers to be tongue heavy.

A little tongue heavy is a good thing. I saw a guy with a new Suburban pulling a travel trailer Fri. evening. Either his hitch was to high, or the trailer was loaded heavy in the rear. Anyway, above 55 and he was all over the place. Loads need to be above axles or a little forward. Tandem axles need the the hitch down so the front axle is carrying some of the load. Just my 2 cents.

Yep, tandem axles should be level at all times empty or loaded which is sometimes hard to do.
