Thanks! I am glad i went with the 20ft and dual 5200lb axles. I know it might be a little overkill, but better to be safe! I was actually going pick up a 20ft with dual 3500lb axles and I saw this one on the lot after we had had done all the paperwork! I talked myself into it and came home with the heavier duty trailer instead! I am glad they had this one in stock, otherwise I would have bought the other one!!

When I bought mine I wanted the heavier axles and 10,000 lb capacity. But, I got such a great deal on my used PJ 18' dovetail that I settled for the 7000# version.

I love the dovetail also. I rarely mess with the ramps. Just jack the front end up as high as you can and drive right on.

Although yours is so purdy, you might not want to do that yet.

Here's mine right after I loaded the Jeep....no ramps.

I forgot to also suggest that if you have your stock spare tire cover still hanging out in your garage somewhere, they make an awesome trailer spare tire cover!

That's like mine, 20' with 5200lb axles. It's just soo damn heavy, about 3100lbs.

Of course, no one wants to be told what their own trailer weighs, so I apologize in advance, but your trailer does not weigh 3100 pounds. Sorry. Don't hate the messenger.

You posted a link to a 6" channel trailer 14,000GVWR and if that is what you have, it appears to tip the scales at 3100 pounds. But, that is not what is shown above.

I just bought a PJ 18' dovetail 7k trailer, and even though I'm towing it with a F-450 I still found it important to keep the trailer weight as low as possible. I would have bought the featherlite ( 1550# instead of 1850# ) if it weren't for the width and the $4k price difference.
If someone told me my trailer is lighter than I thought I'd be thrilled.

Why is it soo hard to accept what someone says as truth. My trailer is the one i posted except mine has 5200lb axles, the weight between the two is hardly worth arguing about.
