    18' trailer enough for a 3033R

    Looking very hard at the 3033R.
    Machine weighs in at ~3000 lbs.

    Need a trailer mostly for:
    moving household & shop things
    hauling landscape materials & lumber
    maybe use for ATV/UTV's

    Will not be transporting the tractor unless it needs to go to the shop.
    So likely I'd only be toting the tractor and maybe the FEL/bucket.

    Would like to get away with an 18' 7k trailer.
    Not exactly sure what the price does to go to a 10k trailer.

    Towing with a 5.0 Ford F-150.

    Thoughts?

    not looking for a lesson in state and federal laws or GVRW's, just opinions on best type and size of trailer.

    Thanks

    I'd personally go with a 10K but a 7K might work if you don't go crazy with it. I just looked at a PJ brand 7K 18' trailer and it's max payload is only 4600lbs (because the trailer itself weighs 2400lbs!).

    A 3000lb tractor + the weight of any implements (i.e. loader, brushhog, etc...) you can easily exceed max payload ratings. The 18' length should be fine.

    yessir, unfortunately for my use, the better built trailers are going to weigh more, which also brings my half ton pickup into play.

    I would be more concerned with what your half ton truck can handle than the trailer size.

    I don't think my pickup will be a problem.
    Guess I wasn't very good with my wording. I been reading up on all the different trailer options and what folks claim to be best for their use. So my head is filled with all these options of types of trailers.

    I don't want to sink a bunch of money in to a trailer mainly structured to haul the tractor and implements, or tractor with shredder. Tractor with loader only.
    That will not be the main use of the trailer, but I need something capable of hauling the tractor if need be.
    Considering the tractor with loader - 18' , 7k trailer should handle it fine, right?

    I'm asking because I see most folks are sizing their trailers to haul their tractor tied to a shredder with additional implements riding along too.
    I don't need to haul the farm around.

    simple arithmetic tells me I'm good, but wanted to see if anyone has any good reasons to need go up to a 10k trailer.

    Thanks

    go with the 18’ 7k trailer. It’s more than capable of handling what you need it to.

    I recommend getting a 10k 20’ trailer. It’s what I use to haul my 1026r. While I don’t do it often . I have hauled a couple of pickups and cars on it. You just never know what your going to need or want to haul in the future.

    I hauled my dodge 2500 home from up north with my dads 150 with no issues. Dads f150 does have the max tow package on it. It tows just as well as my f250 with the gas 6.2 . Well almost, the 250 can handle more weight on the truck.
