Ok so I have found out the 16' trailer weighs 1,900 lbs. as it sits. If I were to carry 5,000 lbs. I would be right at the weight limit of the trailer. That being said I would need to add a third center ramp to the trailer because I have two tricycle front end tractors. This may very well put me to the limit. I am however now concerned based on the info from Farmeroz. My trucks owners manual does not give me great specs. Just says 10,500 towing capacity, 10,000 GVW.

I load my NFE tractors with two ramps regularly. While a few who are unfamiliar will say that it is dangerous, they most likely have never seen it done. It involves nothing more than steering the tractor up the ramp which you need to do with three ramps.

That's the way we've always loaded our tricycle front end tractors too. You just have to be a little careful in what you're doing is all. Keith

Tell me more... I have never tried or seen it done in person.

You approach the trailer ramps from an angle instead of straight. You start your fronts up the further ramp, then turn towards the trailer centerline, so that as your fronts near the back of the trailer they are coming off the ramp on the inside edge.

I would rather be comfortably under capacity than right at capacity (or over capacity). If it was me I'd go with the 10k, 18' trailer and not look back.

I think that is what I am going to end up doing. Where in MA are you located? I am near the Amherst area.
