    Pros: It won't rust and you'll be the envy of other GTT members. I'd be more envious if it were a 20' and I could haul cars on it.

    Cons: Your good buddies and relatives will always want to borrow it. With that comes broken tail lights, trailer plug drug down the highway along with the safety chains, bent tongue from being jack knifed as they can't back up a trailer, flat tires from being overloaded, holes punched through the decking from having heavy items dropped on to it, and you'll always have to figure out who they loaned it to when you need it. You'll only get it back when it needs expensive repairs or it failed a DOT inspection.

    Don't ask me how I know all of this....

    While a 16' may work, the nominal cost to go longer is money well spent.

    I have an 18' trailer with a 2' dovetail to haul my 1025 TLB. In all honesty I wish I had opted for one slightly longer (20' with a dovetail). When I lower the backhoe bucket to the deck and strap it down as required by the DOT, it leaves mere inches of room between the backhoe and the rear gate.

    And while Martin is 100% correct.....that's assuming your friends/neighbors/relatives even have a pickup truck. If not, guess whose they will want to borrow along with that trailer.

    Theres a couple easy fixes to the can I borrow your trailer.

    Pintle hitch......throughs a curve ball.

    Wire your plug in a fashion that only works with "your" truck...A friend did this for theft reasons...It would fry their truck when plugged in.


    But yes...I don't borrow .., I don't loan ... I'm not in the ...business.

    I've worked Hard for all the garbage I own. Its mine. The end.

    If a friend needs help...My truck ,My trailer...How bout lunch or whatever.

    Any particular model?

    7,000 lb or heavier?


    Pro would be lighter than steel giving you more capacity for the same type of trailer.

    Con would be cost, maybe.

    I've never had an aluminum trailer, but I hear they are nice.

    Probably wouldn't work for me. I haul lots of different stuff on mine, including rock. Not sure I'd want a loader dumping rip-rap into an aluminum trailer.


    Will this be just to haul the tractor or do you have other plans as well? A trailer is something that once you have one, you find all kinds of stuff the use it for.


    As far as the length goes, your 1025R TLB should fit, but you won't have much room to adjust the tongue weight or carry anything additional.

    If the cost isn't prohibitive, I go at least 18'.


    I don't worry about the borrowing thing. I just say no.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    Aluminum, for sure. With a wooden deck would be my preference. Lighter and no rust. I can’t think of any reasons NOT to choose aluminum over steel, other than cost. IMHO the lack of rust offsets the higher cost by a wide margin.

    I'm thinking an h&h with a wood deck or an aluma with a wood deck. I have limited storage so I'm planning on selling my utility trailer so this wood be my go to Menards trailer also.

    7000lbs, electric breaks,

    My biggest concern is limited ability to adjust tongue weight. Instructions say to back on trailer so tractor hood does not get ripped off by wind.

    14+2 dovetail or a straight 16 or a 16 tilt/speedloader type.

    What is the best for loading?

    I’m also looking for a trailer. My tractor guys sell a number of different sizes along with option on steel, and galvanized. The one they had suggested is a galvanized 14x7 with a 5500lb axle with brakes. I’ve done sone research on the galvanizing process and it seem like it would be strong and resistant to rust as it will live outside except in the winter. Anyone with experience with the galvanized?
