Wanted: Car trailer
« on: June 23, 2021, 06:00:43 PM »
Anyone have a good condition car trailer they are thinking about selling?

I am looking one that will haul at least 4k. Ideally something with a empty weight less then 1800lbs

Maybe look at landscape trailers too. I had one that I hauled a 4x4 Toyota Tacoma on with no problems, weighed in about what youíre looking for.

Indeed I have been looking at those to, the only thoughts I have is the rear loading ramp might not take the weight of loading a small rig into the trailer?

True. I built some heavier ramps.

No one seems to have much in stock and if they do man they want about 2x what they normally bring. I can have one built from a company by portland for reasonable money but figured I would look for a good used one first.

Any sort of trailer seems to be bringing the same dumb money as boats, RVís, 4 wheelers, plywood etc right now. Itís just not the time.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Good luck finding one in stock. 
I have called 4 Washington dealers , 4 in Oregon,  3 in Idaho and 1 in Utah for a 26' Enclosed  Snowmobile trailer.  All said they have none on the lot but have some coming in the fall , or I can custom order one . Told them what I was looking for and to let me know if they had 1 coming , or  to get me a quote on a custom built . It's been 4 weeks and not 1 has returned a call or emailed me a quote. Guess they dont need my money ?

I ordered 5200# axles, wheels/tires 3 weeks ago.  Scheduled to ship July 16th.  Cutting into my firewood runs.  My 6x12 trailer with ' racks weighs 1800.
