I really like the last trailer because it can carry so much! Its built very well.

I wonder if I could haul a 10 ton steam engine with it?

What do you all think of these trailers?

Thanks for Reading!

first 2 are overpriced IMHO.. I bought a new trailer, actually paid a downpayment for it and checked by every couple days while the local trailer manufacture made it custom for me.

it had smae basic specs as first 2, cost near 1000$ less.

yer last one has the best specs.. though is old.. so I'd be checking wheel bearings.. etc.. hidden costs..

I have had a few and we usually sell them every year as they hold their value very well.A new name brand tandem 32ft tandem axle with nice ramps sell for around $8000 and you hope for no tire or brake issues when the are new.

I would go with 1 or 3. What type of truck do you have to do the pulling and what do you generally haul? Look at pro trak trailers. I bought a new 20+5 a year ago (10 ton) for $6500, I think you can buy a 7 ton model for like $4000. That hillsboro is nice, they are still in business, also expensive. The other advantage to the tandem dual trailer (even though some weigh a ton more than 7 ton models) is increased breaking capacity. For the steam engine Id go with the hillsboro or something similar (it will haul it).

We have a Titan that is similar to yours and it has been very overloaded a few times for quite some distances and it hasn"t missed a beat. I am a firm believer in the quality of Titan trailers!

I guess you have already made up your mind by now. I like the first one unless it is to little. I bought a new Corn Pro 20+5 (the middle lifts up and makes it flat) It also has torsion axles, and has a 15000 gvw. I love it. 5 yrs ago it was 5500 new. Vic

Prices seem high for what they are. Around here, you can get a new 14k 24' gooseneck trailer starting at $4600. Of course when you add led lights, spring assisted ramps, etc. the price goes up. Last year I bought a 20' with 4' dovetail, new floor, and good brakes and tires for $2K. Of course I had to rewire it and get the lighting requirements and break away kit up to DOT standards.

If you are wanting to pull it with a 3/4 or 1 ton truck, transporting the 10 ton steamer is out of the question. Your truck is not rated for that kind of load (somewhere around 18,500lbs total) even though the trailer might be. That will be instant ticket. Like others have said, the 20-25k trailers will put you over the 26K farm tag number (around here at least). Being farm tagged, we don't have to have cdl for the potential to be over 26k, but we do have to have a medical card and dot number. That is why most people stick with the 14k trailers.

I prefer the 20k trailers because they ride better, but I don't want to deal with all the hassles that go with it.

Each state is different, so check with your local DOT before making a final decision.

We haul the 4x4 4450 with loader o the 21K Titan at work.

I think I'd get the Titan, just for the age and the wiring should be in better shape. Unless you really need a heavy trailer.

For the price I would think you could find a newer tandem dual with 10K axle in 25 or 30' lengths. You are going to want the full 102" wide, like most deckovers have. I would buy the biggest trailer you can afford. Remember though, the more capacity it has, the heavier and harder to pull it is going to be. A 25' tandem dual deckover is going to weigh about 7,000lbs empty...

Saw a brand new corn pro like that first one. New trailer was IIRC $6300 ? so they should be able to take less for the titan.

I own a trucking company that operates mostly hotshot trucks. We have a 25" HD gooseneck trailer with 2 12,000lb axles that we use to haul machines up to 20k lbs and it does a great job. Of course hauling that type of weight requires a CDL, we use a International 8400 to haul it. Here in Texas you can get some good deals on trailers due to the large amount of hotshot freight. Check craig"s list Houston for better trailers than you have listed for about the same $$$. good luck. Chris

The last trailer, with the 11,000 pound axles, will put you right into CDL territory. Are you ready to take that test? Also, it is only 8 feet wide, which may seem insignificant, but that extra 6 inches of width can sometimes make a huge difference. Also, it is a 1978 model. I would look it over very carefully for stress cracks in the frame, axles, springs, etc.

I don't think I would even consider the homemade trailer because of liability issues.

All of the prices are in the ballpark.
