Me and my uncle is talking about selling off the 4x7 trailer and the 4x12 trailer and buying one of these 16 footers. Right now if we wanted to take all the tractors to show we have to make multiple trips.

What I've found in the past is if they paint the wood it's probably isn't pressure treated. They will tell you it is BUT!!!!

That is cheap. If the axles have a decent rating on them, that's a good deal. Even if you have to redeck it five years down the road.

Do your homework....

I bought a 18 footer that was supposed to be D.O.T. compliant, but it wasn't!

 

I completely rewired it, added a "break-away" switch & battery, all new LED lights, and added the extra lights for the D.O.T compliance.

It also only had 1 "brake" axle, and the underneath side of the trailer wasn't painted. Had to repaint after 1 year, and replace some boards after 2 years.

That's definitely cheaper than what I have. I gave 1k for my similar 16' and it needed tires, lights, and wiring.

That doesn't seem like a bad price, if you were going to always be hauling cars and other heavy loads I might be worried. But if your hauling garden tractors and other small tractors I think it would work great.
 

Although you could haul more garden tractors if you had a trailer like mine :thumbs:

Requires a CDL in Texas for a gooseneck. Had a friend that had to go to court over pulling a gooseneck dump trailer.

I have a 16' and a 4x8, it's nice to have the smaller trailer when the big one is not necessary.
Edit, here is my dodge and 16' Bri Mar 7000gvw leaving a show last June.

Those trailers for $1000 do not have brakes.....2 or 3 garden tractors plus other stuff is getting up there in weight, I would want trailer brakes for that.....just sayin'

Last 2X8X16 cost about 16.50 each plus taxes. Figure if it's not pressure treated and sits outside in 2 to 3 years you'll be dropping another $200 in it plus new hardware.

My 16' trailer is the same as the original post, but it was used and abused when I got it. Had to pull the floor and straighten the cross members due to over loading. Put 6 new boards in it and a 5000 lb. winch on the front. I can get 4 tractors on it, but very little else. Been very happy with it.
