I've used a few featherlite trailers. Super nice pieces, but they're pricey. Lighter than steel in the same "car hauler" configuration. Never owned one though.Anybody have a recommendation for decent but not expensive trailers? I think I need a deck over trailer with full 102” width x 20’ length. Standard width on a utility trailer seems to be about 6’10”, and that’s not enough.
I don’t want or need super heavy duty, all I’m hauling is atv/utv. Not hauling tractors or probably even cars, nothing super heavy.
Man handle. The 250 is easy. The 650 is a major pain in the butt! It’s only got 1” clearance, so you have to get it on the ramp and shimmy. The other is short enough, I just drive up to get close then pull it around. I had the ramps on the side and was ready to ride over it... then my son says, “cool - I want to see dad get hurt”. So, I altered the plan. Lol@BigAbe75 How do you get the 4-wheels on there sideways? Drive over the rail? Man-Handle them in place once driven on? Epic back flip trick that lands you on trailer sideways without ramps?
I see people running up/down the road with them that way all the time, and I always wonder how they get them on there like that.
