    Any chance one of you know who makes a trailer like the one pictured? I've checked dozens of websites and I can't find any that have the second ramp on the side.

    My buddie is a licensed trailer manufacturer here in NW IN. High quality builds...meaning not cheap. If you're seriously interested I can set you up with him.

    Thanks but there's gotta be something local. I just can't find a place that has these trailers in stock.

    Same here but I was just at both places yesterday and they don't have any with the side ramp.

    Try your local ATV dealer. They might sell them for loading 2 ATV's.

    I'm up in Brainerd. Any chance you could ask your buddy how much it would cost to make the same one that Bugthug linked to?

    I'll be out that way this week sometime barring an activation to the NW. I'll check on it and get back to you asap.

    What are you using the trailer for? If you hauling a quad, I wouldn't get a trailer with the second ramp as it will reduce the structural integrity of the trailer. I use a set of ramps from TSC to side load quads on my trailer. I have ramps to load equipment elsewhere, and the structure of my trailer is extremely sound.

    Yeah I was going to say too, cheap trailers are cheap trailers. If that is all you need, go for it. If you have 2 small push mowers and plan to tow it with your Ford Escort...by all means. My buddie has work coming out of his ass, so by no means was I trying to make a sale. But, an $800-$1k trailer is just that. Those types of trailers are disposable after a couple of years IMHO....if you USE them that is. They use cheap thin angle, no square tubing, thin expanded metal, etc... The whole trailers cost about as much as the powdercoat on a good trailer. One of the huge landscape companies here still has a landscape trailer in their fleet that my buddie built in '93 if that tells you anything. Along with about 30 more. BUT, we're talking $4-5k trailers too.
