Looking very possible that your old trailer may find its way to my house.
I myself would like to sell my 18' for a 20' to haul my quad too.

I like the trailer. Would love have one in aluminum bought thatís some serious $.

When trailer shopping (new trailers on the lots) make sure the trailer has the tires and wheels you want. I found many dealers had absolutely cheap ass tires on the trailer and good tires were an option. Could add $400-$500 to the price.

Need (should have, suggest, good idea, law?) 4 wheel brakes. Another way for a trailer to look like a better deal is it only has brakes on one axle. Need both.

I have bought a few quad trailers from them and they good to me. In Michigan for the weight it is law that you have 2 axle brakes.
So I'm a asshole, so what!:finger:
