    I haven been looking some time to up date my trailer 12gvw 16' to the next size larger in length and weight 18' 14gvw. Good used trailers are very hard to find and usually if you get a good one, you are within $500 of a new one. This one caught my eye. Not all beat up, Owner said it needed...

    Trailer serial #

    Just bought a 18' 14gvw equipment trailer. There is no mfg tag on it. (no title) I would say it is built too professionally to be a home built. Built better than some of the top 4 mfg that I have looked at. The only # I can find is J.N.072710-- stamped on the tongue. The fellow owned it 5...

    Trailer weight ???

    Most trailer specs don't give the empty weight of the trailer. I have a 12K Bob Cat style trailer 16" I figure it weighs around 2500 empty. Sometimes I haul a piece of equipment that weighs around 10k so I figure that puts me about 500 over the listed gvw. Although it has always handled it...

    I run on to a 18' equipment trailer. Moritz. Guy cant tell me much about it. Haven't seen it yet. I assume they have torsion axles which I am not fond of. How is their workmanship, Welds, etc. I have seen some trailers that they look they used bubble gum to weld them.

    Quick hitch, HF & RK

    Are the quick hitch from Harbor Freight and Rual king the same? I don't understand why when you buy a cat. 1 hitch you have to buy pins. Why don't they make them to accept cat 1 pins without adapters. I would say that most people who buy a cat 1 hitch have cat 1 impliments.
