    Nice lookin trailer! I've just never seen a 9500 lbs axle before, expecially with a single tire, Are you sure about that?

    Looking good! I like all that DOT tape, my 20 ton Interstate has it. At first I hated it, now I wouldn't ever take it off... Did you try trading you plowing that lot to take some $$ off the trailer? hahaa

    I was thinking that too.... I thought the highest was 7k with single tire. Sweet looking trailer, it's going to be nice towing 2 big pieces of equip at once.

    Makes more sense than rating it at the axle ratings if you think about it.

    IF it is rated at the axle ratings you can't even load it to the axle ratings without being over GVW assuming you have some tongue weight.

    looks good, how come you didn't go with a gooseneck? those trailers are reasonable in price too.:drinkup:

    cretes right about the rating, the trailer is rated at 16K capacity with the proper tongue load. Thats the reason i stepped up to the 19Kgvwr to get that 16K capacity, the next one down was a 15K gvwr.

    the dealer was about 1.5hrs away so not too bad of a drive, got a chance to get a feel for how the trailer tows. The reason i didnt go with a gooseneck, is that i have several other trucks that might need to utilize this trailer and I didnt want to go putting gn hitches on the other pickup. Plus we have a dump truck and also we are prolly going to get an f550 this year as well.

    more pics!

    im not shy lol, the price was right around $6100. it was an excellent price for what you get and i know it doesnt compare to a towmaster or eager beaver etc... but for our budget and what we are doing with it its perfect.

    appalachian has locations in ohio, penn. and mich.
