    I agree with that being a good price, especially for the Northeast. Good luck with it.

    Man, the prices up there are steep. I bought my 18' by 82" wood deck trailer new in 2004 with brakes on one axle for $860 new. It had used tires and a spare that I finally had to replace just last October. I paid a extra $75 for the 5' ramps. I guess I could sell it for 150% of what I paid new.

    I started out thinking about a trailer for my BX23 but Lately I've had 2 pick ups and a 8x10 building hauled by wreckers.
    Now I'm so confused I'm begining to think I need a tractor to haul my pick ups and trailer on or somethin like that.

My truck is a 2008 GMC 1500 with the towing package, 6.0 v-8 and rated at a towing capicty of 8400 lbs. My thought was by going with a car hauler I would have a larger market if I ever wanted to sell it. Does any one see a problem hauling a tractor on a car hauler as long as the troactor does not exceed the capicity of the trailer?
    Like ultrarunner said.. lots of us are using car haulers.

    I have a 16' wood decked car hauler tandem axle, one with brakes... works fine for my CUT sized tractors.

    Getting a landscape trailer built like a car hauler certainly will tow your pickups with your BX. You certainly will be able to get ALOT of seat time due to fact BX high gear range is not fast enough for road travel. I driven my BX once to a job site that took me 2 hours to get there since I had NO money left to buy a trailer at the time and was earning money for the trailer by driving to the job site. Now i got the 16 ft landscape trailer and can tow the BX to whereever i need it and can pick up materials as well with it.

    with a 7K lb trailer your going to be right at max weight ....

    if the trailer weighs 1200lbs your looking at 5800lbs for the tractor (6000 if you assume a lighter trailer)

    TC33 with loader and BH will likely weigh in near 6K lbs.

    when towing at near trailer max capacity, loading (were is the weight) is critical to how well its going to tow. Remember to keep 10%+ tongue weight.

    But can you use a tractor hauling trailer to haul a car on?
    I have hauled a couple cars on my 16' flatbed "tractor" trailer. Last one was a little Subaru wagon. Worked just fine.

    You can't open doors, because in most cases they hit the trailer fenders.

    Re: hauling your pickup. My 3/4 ton 4x4 long bed quad cab is too long for my 16' trailer, and too heavy too. A lighter shortbed 1/2 ton would be ok.

    Since my little import pick ups are heavier than my BX23 I guess I should be looking at a truck and trailer that will handle the pick ups and can also haul the BX 23 as a bonus .
    Makes more sense than specking out a truck trailer combo for the BX23 then trying to get it to accommodate handling the pick ups.

    Getting a landscape trailer will work for hauling small import trucks, cars, or tractor but it will not haul a full size pickup or any vehicle wider than 76" since that is the width of a landscape trailer. If you ever need to haul a full size you'll need a deckover or a trailer with 82" between the fenders. Future uses or what if cases are something to consider before buying a trailer. I think it was DiamondPilot who posted that he went to load a dodge pickup on his trailer only to find it wouldn't fit. A few posts later I saw why and it was because his trailer is only 76" wide.

    Yep, It was me. I drove 2 hours one night to get my neighbors who were stranded with a blown transfer case. I had hauled a Suburban on the trailer but it was tight, maybe 1" of clearance.
