    I guess it is not full of bling bling and chiki chiki but it is a bad little unit. 37 foot deck plus a 5 foot dovetail, 3 7K torsion axles, brakes on all 3 axles, lots of lights, 9000 lb warn winch, 120 gal fuel tank with electric pump, loading jacks, tongue and groove hardwood deck, 19 LB 12 inch I beam bridged frame, chrome wheels (very dirty in photo} and other stuff.

    jac, 29 feet is a little short for hauling two trucks. I guess it colud be done but it would be tight.. I just said the heck with it and bought the biggest one I could find. I am glad I did now. It sucks getting one "that will do", you will always want or need more room.

    I bought this for our yearly trip to Lake Havaseu City. We can take the ski boat, both jets skis, both four wheelers and both of the kids go carts. We just use the 4 wheelers to load the boat and the jet skis, strap it all down and haul butt.

    No sir, it is not over 26,001 pounds GVWR and/or it does not have air brakes.

    If that Dodge has a Cummins in it, you're all set to pull all those toys. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Nice trailer. Doesn't look to be 37 feet of deck though. I have a 30' gooseneck myself.

    From the angle it is hard to tell. It is 37 deck, 4.5 dovetail, and 8 for the hitch. Weighs 8200 lbs empty. Out of curiosity what does your 30' goose weigh?

    I got it from Cochran Farm Supply in Goodland, Kansas. I paid $4250.00 out of the door for it around a year ago. It is a 2000 model.
