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

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

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)

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
