Default Trailer Dealers

Anyone on here a trailer dealer ?

Will be in need of a trailer 28-32ft tag, or 38-48 gooseneck before next season, pricing around at this point.

Or anyone got a place they got a great deal on a trailer ?

I want something plain that I plan to do all the work to.

thanks

My dad and I have both bought trailers from Proline. they sell on here in the new trailer section and you get a good deal if you pick it up in Elkhart IN.

Dave,

We have dealt with a guy by the name of Marlin Stubbs on Vintage trailers. His deal is simple and you will just need to go to Elkhart to pick up. Remind me this week and I will IM you the phone number.

i was in the market for a trailer a few months back and learned a lot...just be careful what you are buying and make sure all the right Questions are answered such as ,what lb axles,the on center build..
Horton and Pace are just two brands that are top of the line....many cheap made knock off's out there that will not last.
Pay me NOW or Pay me more later :shock:

THE BEST TRAILER FOR THE MONEY WOULD BE A CLASSIC TRAILER MADE IN MICHIGAN THEIR WEBSITE IS WWW.CLASSICMFG.COM 1-800-826-1960 ASK FOR WADE WOLF AND TELL HIM THAT WILLIS PRICE TOLD YOU TO TALK TO HIM PERSONALLY. I LIVE IN ARLINGTON TEXAS AND USED TO WORK FOR HIM SELLING TRAILERS ON THE NHRA,IHRA, AND THE ASCS SPRINT CAR SERIES THEY ARE A LITTLE MORE PRICEY HOWEVER THEY ARE VERY WELL MADE. GOOD LUCK CHECK OUT THEIR WEBSITE.

These posts are pretty much spot on - Elkhart is the trailer building mecca for some reason. My new Cargo Mate is a Forest River product, they make several brands and price ranges. Classic makes a very nice steel trailer, but the nicest steel ones IMHO are from Motiv, built by ATC. I know of a very good deal on an all aluminum ATC 40' w/small sleeping quarters, shower and toilet. Very nice trailer worth the money. I would have bought it had I not already ordered new. Good luck with your search, remember for the dragster little or no beavertail and get the dropped axles, and extra height helps (longer door). 8) JB
