    I picked up a 24 foot Goosneck trailer today. It has dual 7000lb axles, both with brakes. It is a very solid trailer. I feel pretty good, only paid 2 G's. I am stoked. Anyways, just wanted to share.

    Kewl! My plans are to get a '91-'93 dodge cummins and get a 32 foot gooseneck. We're going to finish up the '56 and we'll have the blazer so that means we'll have to tow two full sizes. Until the '56 is done, we can tow someone else home if they need /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Dats the plan though /forums/images/icons/grin.gif


    I'd feel alot better about pushing the blazer to the limits if I have a way to get her home lol!

    Yah, I am happy with the price. I am very happy with the trailer. It isn't pretty, but it is built like a brick Sh!+ house. It is made form 14" Ibeam. allthe way , even the neck. I plan on building ramps up so I can park a rig up on the neck.

    I'm thinking that parking a rig on the neck would grossly overload the tow vehicle. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif That places too much weight near the nose of the trailer.

    Uhhhhh, have you ever seen a three car hauler?? They are built to drive over the neck. I am not concerned about verloading my tow rig, but thanks.
    I would load a jeep pver the front and my rig over the rear trailer axles.

    You just have to put enough weight behind the trailer axles to balance the weight up front.
