    Default Dump trailer, Finally decided what I am buying.

    After 3-4 weeks of shopping on the net and making many phone calls I put a deposit on a dump trailer.
    I wanted a dump trailer with slide out ramps tucked away underneath the bed.
    Many have located the ramps on the side of the trailer for numerous reasons.
    Sure-Trac HD Low Profile trailer was my choice.
    I found a leftover 2012 model and saved some cash.

    It is 82" x 12'
    16" on center bed support
    Combination tail gate
    LED lighting
    Powder coat finish
    Adjustable pintle ring
    Slots for 2" x 12" side board extensions
    12,000# GVWR (2 x 6000# axles)
    I am going to get the spare tire also from the dealer.
    Gave the dealer a deposit over the phone and will probably pick it up next Friday.
    We are due for a storm tonight and the roads will be bad tomorrow.

    That's a nice looking trailer. I've always wanted one, but just don't have a use for it. How did you decide on the 12 footer and not the 10 or 16?

    Congratulations, looks like nice trailer. When I was looking I found two trailers a Big Tex 14k 6.5x14' and a PJ 14k 6.5x14' wound up with the PJ trailer and it has the rear slide out ramps too. This was a 3 yr old trailer that the local rental store had not been able to rent out more than 5 times powdercoat was still like new in the bed. Been a good trailer, hope your s works out as well.

    Thanks everyone.
    I wanted one large enough to hold my tractor, move furniture and be able to haul 5 yard loads.
    I measured my tractor with loader and rear blade.
    12 foot will hold my tractor with the FEL elevated up over the front tarp holder.
    The low sidewall/tailgate height will let the rear doors close with the rear blade on the 3 point elevated out the back of the trailer if needed.
    I will store my ballast box at the woods and use it with the FEL/grapple when cutting firewood.
    14' or 16' foot would be a little better fit but too long for my needs, too hard to manuver it the woods and too large to store .
    My crewcab is 23 feet long plus a 12' foot trailer will be hard enought to manuver in the woods.
    I made a pintle hitch for the tractor so I can move the trailer about in the woods.
    The 12 foot will also hold enough shingles when I re-roof in a few rears also.
    I think it will be the perfect size for my needs and will be smaller to store.
    I wouldn't mind having a storage tent for it or building a small second garage out back after I retire.

    It's a beauty. I have been lucky to borrow one. I like the size of your. Must have a large truck to handle this.
