    Default Trailer advice

    Good afternoon everyone. I did not want to hi-jack Sockwells trailering questions thread so I thought I would start my own. I know there are guys on here with similar needs/uses. I finally got my tractor and ranger crew this year. What I need is a trailer to haul both. I am thinking 30' range. The ranger is almost 12' long, the 4200 JD with 420 loader I am not sure. Just purchased before I headed out to work 3 wks ago, wont be home till next weekend to measure. I want to be able to haul all of it to some family owned deer hunting property 6 hrs away from home.Just some thoughts on deckover, or utility style equipment trailer. Probly will get a gn,but bp would be okay also.Opinions are welcome and personal expierance is appreciated. Also, this will be a kill all the birds with one stone trailer if ya know what I mean. THANKS LUTT

    for a long trailer with heavy load.. if i had the capacity to go GN.. i would.

    a 25' will haul my ford 'cut' sized machine with backhoe and loader.. also hauls a full length e350 passanger van.. 30 is nice if you can afford the extra feet. a few extra feet of trailer is ALWAYS nice...

    Thanks, Soundguy, I am partial to gn's. Use them on the farm.I do know I will stay in the 14000# trailer weight hauling range. I really dont need any more than that. I plan on buying a mini ex and dp 21 komatsy dozer in the future and dont want to buy another trailer for those either. What do you think,deckover or utility/lowboy style?

    Yeah, that is what i was thinking,seems like stuff is easier to tie down on a deckover.I know it is aggravating to put my trail jeep on my utility trailer for that reason. tires are always trying to climb over the sides. LUTT

    It sounds like a 30' wood be right length. I have one that has 2 8k axles and I really like it,but I if I did it over I would put 10k with single 19.5 tires which gets you around 20k of tire and only 4 tires. I don't like flip up ramps.

    I have been looking at ones with hydraulic dove tails but they are pricey. Don't settle get what you need/want the first time. Here's pic of my setup

    8 k axles would be a thought for later down the road,flip up ramps dont bother much now,but might when I get older. I think a deck on the neck would be something I would want,toolbox for chains,binders and ratchet straps. More than likely a 12 or 16 k warn winch on it also.I agree that you need to get what you want or need the first time. Trailers are expensive. I want to get it right the first time. That is why I asked on here for opinions. By the way, looking at 3 paticular brands, Rice,Big Tex, or PJ. Rice is 45 min. up the road from me and they do custom builds. THANKS LUTT

    deck on the neck is nice. even if it don't come with one.. should be easy to add.. some angle iron and timber
