    the one on CL looks taller... of course, it isn't loaded either. lol! I'd really like to use this type of trailer as opposed to a bumper pull...

    agreed..... When I think of a truggy I don't think of much weight up high so i wouldn't be worried about pulling it with a deck over like on CL. Especially in a goose neck configuration

    No offense, but that trailer looks flimsy and is way too high IMHO..

    You'd definately be getting what you paid for with that.... :o

    well, the pics are from a distance and blury (good combo!)... so I honestly have no idea if its beefy enough or not. I'd have to see it in person... or get much better pics.

    At any rate, it does seem high. The distance between the deck and tires seems pretty far. :)

    yeppers... I'd be happier if it was lower, no doubt. It may be possible to modify it though. I dunno, maybe the suspension bracketry was just attached where it is for the sake of ease. Might be able to shoe-horn everything in there so it would sit lower. I sent the guy an email... hopefully more/better pics will be part of his response...
