    Trading trailer.

    I've got a heavy duty car hauler I use to haul my 4010 mcut. I got some 3 1/4"x 3/16" angle iron to put rails on it so I can haul firewood on it but haven't done anything with it yet. The other day I saw an add for a trade that has me interested. It's an 18'x 78" utility trailer.

    Pros are that the rails are on already and it's 2' longer. I could build a gate for it and could load my tractor and all my empliments with my brushhog hooked up and still lift the gate. It's also got a bulldog hitch which would be an upgrade.

    Cons are that it's a significantly lighter and has a couple bad boards that will need replaced before I would be comfortable using it.

    I know that anything I'll ever need to haul, my current trailer can do it.

    I'll try to post a video of mine and a link to the other.

    So would you trade? I think my trailer is worth a bit more. What do you think?

    make a set of wooden sideboards to fit ur trailer. no way i would trade urs for the other one-just my 2 cts.

    question? doesn't ur trailer have any brakes on it. just wondering why u have a 4 prong plug-instead of a 7 pin. does it have a break away kit on it? if so-where's ur battery at? i didn't see it--where mine is located at.

    i 2nd to make sideboards-ok.

    Looks like either trailer handles what you need to haul and the extra length would be a nice bonus. Personally, I like flat decks with sides I can pull off as needed but like everything, what works for one doesn't for another.

    Yours looks in better shape. However I wouldn't tow anything with it.

    No trailer brakes on one that size is crazy. If I remember correctly any trailer hauling over 3,000 lbs is required to have them. If you get in an accident the lawyers are going to have a field day with whatever's left of you.
    You need the 7 pin connection because it has a power wire to energize your trailer brakes.

    A brake away battery powers the trailer brakes if the trailer comes loose from the tow vehicle. Any trailer with electric brakes is required to have one.

    I think them U Haul trailers have surge brakes. They work with fluid pressure instead of an electric magnet. A regular master cylinder like a car would have is mounted by the hitch. The force of the trailer trying to push the tow vehicle when trying to stop activates it.

    U Haul uses this type of system so that the tow vehicle doesn't need to have an electric brake controller to operate the trailer brakes. They are popular with high end boat trailers. This way you aren't dipping your electric brakes into the water every time you launch the boat.
