    I dont know how I do it but I do lol. I just picked up a 6x16ft landscape trailer last night in northampton mass for $400. The thing is in pretty good shape. It could use decking so I am gonna put new decking on it. I towed this thing down the mass pike last night and you would never know the thing is behind you.

    My buddies dad and uncle took a bog old single axle boat trailer, welded on a bunch of angle iron, and then some steel mesh stlye stuff for a deck. Its pretty long for a single axle, and weighs a ton, but its awesome at following in the tracks of the truck, other than the weight, youd never know you had it. But like I said, Id love to find something like yours.

    Tell you what. Since you got ripped off with the size, I'll try to make it up to you and take it off your hands for what you gave for it.

    lmao nice try and thanks for the offer. but no thanks. i just pulled the deck off of it. it is very solid. I am gonna shorten the deck about a foot and a half and I am gonna put a big locking mesh cage on it. to lock weed whackers, leaf blowers, straps, chains, rope and stuff so. It will get done eventually

    Looks great. What are you going to do with the old one. If you are looking to sell it pm me I am looking for something a little larger so I dont have to take my blower for my bagger off.

    I would move those tail lights back to the end of the trailer. I have never see them on fenders before. Anyway, Nice trailer for 2000 lbs and less. That is about all the weight I would put on it. I want a lighter weight trailer too and 7' x 16' would be perfect
