Trailer for sale or trade. 20 ft. flatbed + dovetail *EDITED FOR THEFT*
UPDATE: Trailer has been stolen from Hudson, WI. If spotted, email email@example.com or call 7|5-78|-542|
I am wanting to sell or trade my trailer. Its a 15 month old Road Warrior I purchased from Johnson Trailer in Colfax, WI brand new, built to my specs. Reason for selling is that I just don't need this large of a trailer. I will consider partial/full trade (depending on condition) for another car hauler: Must be 16' + dovetail, dual axle brakes, 7,000# rating or higher. Those are bare minimum requirements. Alright, onto my trailer
Specifications - Car Hauler, Wood Floor
Weight Rating: 7,000 LBS. GVWR w/evenly distributed load
Length: 102" X 20' w/dovetail
Axle:2-3,500# electric brake, w/ez-lube, safety breakaway w/charger
Suspension: 4 leaf double eye springs
Tires & Wheels: ST205/75 D15 load range C tires, 5x5 bolt pattern silver mod wheels
Fenders: 1/8" pre-formed treadplate steel drive over fenders and 10 ga. fender backs with heavy duty fender bracing
Hitch: 2 5/16" 7,000# Bulldog w/safety chains
Jack: 2,000# setback, topwind
Structural: 5" channel frame and tongue, running board steps, 3" channel crossmembers (24" centers)
Tie Downs: 14 stake pockets, 2 X 2 tubing bump bar
Ramps: 2X2 tubing (5'long X 18" wide), slides in from rear
Electrical: All required lighting, license bracket w/light, sealed factory wiring harness w/7 way connector
Floor: 2X8 treated yellow pine decking
Paint: Valspar primed & painted with 2 color pinstriping
Aluminum tongue mounted toolbox.
I'd like to see $2600 or OBO for the trailer. New price, before tax was $3100, and it MIGHT have 1500 miles on it. Everything is in perfect working order, with only slight imprefections in the finish. Typical wear and tear only (paint chips/scuffs from chains sliding, paint wearing off on the heavily weather pounded areas, etc.)
Here are some pictures for now, I can get more upon request.
Trailer is located near Peoria, IL for the summer. Delivery can be negotiated.

I know that most people have hauled more than 1000lbs in a 1/2 ton truck, hell I have hauled almost 3000 lbs in a half ton truck, and a 3/4 ton truck.
I have a 20 ft car hauler that is 5 lug axles and I have hauled my 8000lb cummins on it just fine.
If you are cautious and aware that you are hauling a heavy load, you will be fine. Just have trailer brakes and controller and it will be good.
I have even hauled 8000lbs on a trailer rated for 6K with no trailer brakes. Yes I know its not the safest, but when in a pinch and you have no other choice it can be done.
I guess what I am saying is that unless you are going to push the weight limits of the trailer to the extreme (4,5,6K over) that you should be fine.
