I have a gooseneck trailer that was built my dad built when he finished welding school back I"m the mid-80s. It"s a really stout built trailer and is roughly a 8x20. It was never used very much and now I"m wanting to use it. Here"s the deal... It has mobile home axles and tires and I"d like to put something better under it. I"d like axles with electric brakes. I looked at a few online and 7k axles with brakes run about $700-800. What would you guys recomend? I will be hauling small tractors with some equipment, antiques, round bales, and thought about putting a 1000 gallon tank on it someday and use it has a nurse trailer. The trucks I will use to pull it would be a 09 F150, Chevy 2500 Duramax or an 85 Chevy 1 ton. All three of which already have electric brake controllers. Any suggestions on which way to go? Would I be better off selling this trailer and putting some money with it to get a better one with electric brakes already? I would guess maybe 1500 miles a year... Maybe more but its not something I would use everyday. Thanks for the help, Ryan
