    That seems like a sweet deal. I would jump on it. Its a great value, since it includes the anti sway setup, which can run from about 300-700 dollars.

    I espeically like the race tire carrier. Its a nice added touch to keep a spare/rain tires on.

    Like the others have said, it looks like a good deal. But, check out the weight rating on the axles. They need to be bigger than 3500lbs to really be on the safe side when pulling a fullsize.

    What's the Axle rating on that thing?

    If two 5200lbs (or up), then yes, good deal.

    If two 3500lbs, then I would say, it is an avg. deal...Since I see most 7000lbs rated trailers for ~ $1600 or so...

    The trailer looks pretty short to me, or maybe its the pics. I just spent 3250 on my 20' Steel Deck with 2' dovetail, removable fenders, 5,200 pound axles with brakes on both, brake-a-way brakes and he threw in a ballmount and brake controller.

    I need to buy a load distributing hitch real soon.

    I think maybe the guy listed it as 20ft...but that was probably the TOTAL length...and the deck was only 16ft....because it does look short for a 20ft deck.

    The only other thing you have to keep an eye on really is the width... I was having problems finding a trailer to fit my truck with just 35X12.50R15 and a D44 front. If you have the D60 up front with 37's think of that also. I saw that the fenders could be removed... but there was something about the trailer was for something that was lowered? Just my $.02
