I bought a Kaufmann single wheel tandem axle gooseneck with a 20' bed and a 4' beaver tail this winter. I kept looking for a single wheel trailer with 8000lbs axles. As it truns out this trailer GVWR is 18,000 lbs. It looks like a really well built trailer. It has load range F tires. Didn't know made load range F tires. Until now load range E is the highest I had seen in a 16" diamter wheel. Anyway it has almost no miles on it, less than two years old, never seen salt, and I bought it for $4400. I have olny used it once but it pulls real nice. So my question is two fold one. Is there something I need to watch out for with a load range F tire? Has anyone had any issuse with a Kaufman trailer?

I have owned a Kaufman tag along for five years now. It has about 200,000 miles on it. It has served me very well. No manufacturer defects, no other issues. Not happy about the rear light placement as they keep getting caught on things and broken. Would go with disc brakes next time. For the price, they were $2,000 less than comparable trailers and it only took ten days to build, compared to two months from other companies in the northeast.

I"ve had two (2) Kaufman trailers, the first was bought in 2000 and sold in 2004 and the second was bought in 2006 which I still have. I honestly liked the 2000 trailer better but I am not exactly sure why. It just felt different in a better way, both loaded and empty. But I am not complaining. If I sold the 2007, I would buy another Kaufman trailer without even thinking about it. Never had any manufacturing issues and the only thing I have to do periodically is fix the deck boards which pop up. But that"s normal.

Most 8K axles I've seen have 17.5" wheels/tires.
What size are the 16 inch load range F tires on your trailer? The 8K axles usually have 5/8" wheel studs, is that what you have?

I think you did good, maybe saved close to $2K versus new Kaufman. Good luck with it. I am looking for similar, either gooseneck or bumper pull.

not really,,the load range 'f' tires are common on construction, hauling low-boys equipment trailers,,,you can get them for flat/goose bed trailers, they are just a bit more lbs rated tire..if/when i need to re place my tires, i might see about 'f' range for for brand of trailer, don't have any ideas..some one will chime in with info...

I have a friend who has several Kaufman trailers for his business and he says they have served him well. No major issues.
