    2006 35+5 Load Max Tri axle gooseneck trailer. I bought this from the original owner/purchaser who used it for his masonry business that didnt take off. He says it has less than 5K miles on it. The tires show this! The spare tire still has the nubs on it. Decking is in great shape and the rub rails are nice and straight! Typical rust from use and sitting out in the sun but other than that is in great shape! The wiring harness from the trailer to the truck has a few nicks and repairs but nothing that effects the wiring. Ill throw in a chunk of wiring for the buyer! 3 flip over ramps on a self cleaning dovetail. Enclosed toolbox up front with expanded metal bottom. Dual jacks.

    I would keep the trailer but its about 10' too long for me and I cant get it in the barn so I'm selling it.

    Its by the road for $7500 obo

    Thanks
    Ian

    Thanks guys! I had it sitting by 127 for the race traffic today. no calls yet.... but its day one.

    This is a nice trailer and low mile unit!! I would hold onto it but dang its too long for me! I would have to add 15' to the barn where I keep the GN trailer!

    Im looking for something like this to haul loads of hay/straw. Have you ever, or would you know how many normal 45-55lb bales might fit on a trailer this size, stacking maybe 4-5 high?

    All depends how you stack it. You could make some racks and attach it form the side rails. The rear 8 ft pitch you couldnt go 5 high, the angle would end up to steep. Unless you tied them down good

    we stack our trailers 7 high. A 30 foot gooseneck with a homemade 2 foot tail will haul 350 bales when 7 high, we have gone 8 high before, thats 400 bales. It comes out to 50 bales per layer when stacked in 10's from the bale accumulator, you stagger the stacks as you go back and up. works well and holds well. On the 30 foot trailer we only run 5 straps.

    Heres a pic of a 24 foot customers trailer on my truck from this year. You can see how they are staggered, and on the top row, we put the outside ones flat, and the inside three on edge.

    So a 40 foot trailer would probably be about 60 bales per layer, so if you want to go 5 high, then that would be approx. 300 bales.
    As for the dovetail, slide the outside ramps out as far as they go and center up the 3rd one, throw a 4x8 sheet of plywood on it with a small ratchet strap and your good.

    I hope this answers your questions about the bales, if your wondering any more about putting bales on trailers let me know, we bale almost 500 acres of rye, we fill the barn back at the home farm, the rest goes on trailers or pallets. so we have gotten really good at stacking trailers. We have stacked 53 foot drop deck semi trailers 9 high, so 5 is not a problem.
