It seems like most trailer manufacturers are now offering hydraulic dovetails for goosenecks. I like the idea, but it seems there are only a couple that will actually support weight, the others are not much more than a powered ramp. as they are rated. It seems that most let the weight rest on the cylinder pins, or at the best, they have seperate support props. Most don't tell you what they are rated. So does anyone own one, and how have you used it? The big question is, can you haul the weight you want on the tail?
I found one that rated the tail at only 3,000 lbs, but said it would lift 10,000. Bute trailers rates their tail to 7,500lb, and says it will lift over 11,000 lbs. They are the only one I have found rated that high. Red Rhino is building a trailer with a very heavy sliding lock, there is no rating, but it must be capable of holding weight.
