You might want to check out tough trailers, on the corner of fraser highway and mt lehman.
I just picked up a 6.5x12 tandem for $2500. 7000# and nicely finished.

I had a 10,000lb Big Tex and loved it. It towed so nice that you never knew it was behind you, got mine from Kitt Equipment [cheers]

My big tex has been great.
Even with the camper on the truck and the jeep on the trailer you don't know its there.

Can't go wrong with big tex trailers, either that or build your own

Try to stay away from u built trailers that use old stripped camper frames as the bases, I had one that was made into a flat deck and it bent after years of HARD abuse, an now Phil has it and he destroyed it lollol

Yup u can but it's a headache to insure, gotta go back and fourth to notary and ICBC, proof of buying materials etc..

Hey Nick, it doesn't seem that bad. I guess as long as you know it before going in.

The following pdf shows the parts you need invoices for:

It's not too bad to do a u-build. Mines a u-build. Just gotta go through the proper procedures then once it's done you're good.

You can have mine Chris but your gonna have to buy me a bigger and better one.

One that will fit my jeep and hosers truck(only hosers truck) :party0010:

it's probably cheaper just to buy one than build one
I bought mine for less than it cost to build my last trailer
look at the auctions seen some nice new trailers go through the big one in chiliwack

something tells me that you wont need room on the trailer for your jeep anytime soon....... :D

all I can really say is buy bigger than you think you need, don't wanna get pulled by DOT for bein overweight because ya got all your shit on it. 18 ft deck is a nice size. And check the wiring on any trailer you look at, the guys that wire those things leave a little to be desired to say the least, I think they hire em straight off the short bus.

Mikey's right it don't seem to matter what trailer co built it they all seem to be wired the same way cheap but conecters and scotch locks
even buddy's 70.000+ stacker race car trailer the wireing sucks in it

Two 3500lbs axles sounds a bit light. Don't forget that the trailer weighs close to 2000lbs. Subtract that from your 7000lbs, and a Toyota on there would be pushing the limits.

Definately go with a 10K trailer. Mine is a 7K and wish it was 10K.
7 k is too low and it weights 1700.
So that only leaves 5300 to put on it. With my rig loaded with gear, i'm pushing that

then you just need a truck with the towing capacity to legaly tow 10.000 lbs
or is the raptor have that much thought it was around 8000 on them
