    Looks good man:thumb:

    I've got those fold up ramps on mine too. If you haul a long box truck you will have to take them off, but that is the only thing I don't like about mine.

    How much did you end up paying for it? I'm looking for a similar trailer and there doesn't seem to be any used ones around here that are between 7k GVW and 14k GVW so it looks like I'm gonna have to go new.

    Congrats! Nice trailer! I am also looking for about the same thing except in 20' so I can hopefully fit a quad on with the K5. These trailers nowadays cost as much as I paid for the K5:( .

    It was 2295.00. I looked and called alot of companies and that was the best price i could find without driving a lot further.

    Mine measures 84" and it seems that I have about a 1/2" on each side between the wheels and my rails.
