    Tractors on Trailers

    I was browsing through older photos and realized I have quite a few "trailer shots". My current car hauler is an American Hauler aluminum 20' tandem axle 10,000 gvrw hauling a payload of approximately $8,400 lbs. I seem to burn through trailers as I always end up wanting bigger. For one reason or another, I never seem to learn my lesson. Anyways, here's some pictures of my trailer with various pick-ups and deliveries and a few that have been delivered to me.

    I came home this week to see a boo-boo on my fender. Turns out my "assistant" didn't heed the advice to swing it wide!

    I do recommend American Hauler trailers. I like the rear storage for the ramps behind the right side rear fender and they offer both HD deck tie downs and stake pockets along the side as well as a rub rail. Additionally, they provide space to mount a spare tire horizontally on the tongue. I'd still like some rear jack stands, a storage box, drive-over fenders, among other things, but I'm sure I'll upgrade soon enough.

    You may see an enclosed trailer as well. That is 6" higher than standard so I can fit whatever can go in a "standard" height garage in this trailer. Still 10,000 gvrw, but the trailer weighs close to 4,000 lbs so payload is capped at around 6,000.

    I got a flat tire in the first 60 miles of driving my enclosed trailer. Also, the front, left side panel came untucked from the trim and started flapping in the wind on the maiden voyage. For my troubles, the dealer/manufacturer provided me a $250 cash rebate.

    I've had one flat tire on my Load E tires on my open car hauler in approximately 12,000 miles.

    Never had a flat on any of my previous trailers, but have had brake issues on almost every trailer I've owned except these most recent two.

    Light issues? Don't get me started.

    I really shy away from auctions and only go to one if I just can't find the right tractor to fill a gap in my lineup. I can only remember ever buying five tractors on auction. I do get them from far and wide though.

    You have some great trailers. I had a custom made American Hauler enclosed trailer made back in 2007. I've put over 300,000 miles on it with no problems other than the occasional flat tire and tearing off a fender after running over a recap that had come loose from a tractor-trailer rig ahead of me one night. I pulled off to the side of the highway and looked for the fender but never did find it. Must have sailed off into the woods.
