I just picked up a new trailer for my ZR2. Its a PJ 5" Channel Buggy Trailer, which has drive-over fenders and a full width deck. In all the research I did, I found nothing but good feedback about them. They come standard with great stuff like enclosed wiring, sandblasted, acid wasted, and powdercoated frame.

Options:
20' deck
2' dovetail
5' slide-in ramps
5200# axles, brakes on both
LED lights
tongue jack
2-5/16" coupler

i have the exact same trailer, and it's the best trailer i've owned by far. It pulls great no matter where the weight is on the trailer. I've had it to Moab several times and have pulled all types of loads with it. You'll love it I'm sure.

I wish they made it in a triple axle goose neck and about 12-14 feet longer, I would own two if they did.

I've had mine now a couple of years, but I'm thinking I was around $3100. I got the 5 inch channel and 5200# axles, brakes on both. I found it at a dealer that was going under, so it was take what they had in stock. I got lucky because it's a great pulling trailer and worth every penny. The only other option I would have got if I had ordered one was the adjustable hitch coupler. They have a lot of options. Check out the website for PJ trailers.

You'll never find one for $3100 now. I got quotes from 5 dealers. They are running about $3600 - $3900. I got this one for a bit less than that, only because it is a left over model. They said that steel and rubber have both went up, and are going up again, so trailer pricing is going up accordingly.

I got a great deal, because he needed to get rid of what he had in stock. but the trailer is worth what you paid and I would have paid it too. Should be the last trailer you own as long as your happy with the size. It's the best built trailer I own and I have several.

My new ride. 2011 1/2 ton with the Max towing package. 6.2 & 6 spd, integrated brake controller, all leather, all everything. Just finished a 760 mile road trip and averaged 17.5 mpg averaging 5 or so over the limit. It's the best mileage of any of my tow rigs and this one pulls the best.

Great Truck!


And of couse, I had to add this

Nice truck Jim, my 07 silverado is still probably my favorite truck ever, I think my f350 would be if it was also brand new

Very nice new 6.2 SLT. That's what I almost got instead of my Duramax, but the 6.2 was so hard to find prior to 2011. I do love my truck, but sometimes I wish I bought a 6.2 truck.
