Anyone own a Rice trailer and whats your experience with them? Looking at a new trailer, single tandems, pop-up dove tail, double landing gear. Looks to be constructed fairly stout but I have heard concerns about powder coated equipment trailers.

I do not have a rice trailer. I do have a 20+5 PJ that is 7 or 8 years old, with triple ramps. It is powder coated and other than the deck having oil stains on it, the trailer looks like I picked it up yesterday.

I have the new Rice on order. Dealer sells PJ, Rice, Loadmax, Delta and their own custom made brand. I also sprung for a B&W disappearing ball as the one in the F350 I traded off was always in the way. Pretty decent guy, installing the hitch Friday and said the keys were in his truck if I needed to use it.

My App is a 2006 model. Has some minor surface rust here and there. I'll probably hit it with a few cans of black rustoleum. Its 31+4, they dont make this model anymore.

If the rice trailer is like the new ones, it looks much like my Appalacian trailer. Only difference is mine is 10 feet longer. 20+5 should be able to fit 2 tractors on easily and maybe you could fit 3 on if you got fancy.

Some people think you should get the stoutest heaviest trailer you can find and anything else is sub-par.

I believe you should get a trailer thats stout enough, that way your not hogging up your GVW with just empty trailer. My gooseneck weights between 4-5000 lbs and has a payload of 12000 lbs ending up with a GVW of 17000. It is stout enough. But sitting next to a PJ, one might say the PJ is a bit beefier.

I saw a rice trailer. Looked stout to me if I remember correctly.

Just make sure your trucks GVW and trailers GVW wont exceed 26000 unless you have a CDL or Farm plates....

Powder coat does not work well on a trailer. That said, I have managed to keep mine from getting too bad with phosphoric acid. It will penetrate under the plastic where it has started to separate, and stop the rust. Then a little black paint over it will seal it.

What brand of trailer do you have and how long before it started to rust out? The trailers I own now are all enamel painted and have fared OK over the years being that they sit out 24-7. I see more and more trailers, including some premium brands, that are powder coated but I hear if the trailer flexes the powder coat cracks.

I wouldn't say that the powder coat on my PJ cracks where it flexes it is mainly just scratches and corners where the coating was apparently a little thin. Mine is probably '05 or'06 and it still looks good but I keep after it.
