    Trailer for my 1026R

    Okay guys. I am in the market for a trailer and have been reading the threads on here plus doing internet research. At first, I was leaning towards a landscape trailer, but am now moving my thoughts towards a car hauler to have multi-purpose. I know that Brian did extensive research and was torn between what he ended up with versus a tilt trailer. I just came across a company on Ebay called wholesale trailer, and their actual company is called MuleTuf located in Sikeston, MO. I can get a tilt trailer from them with a 18' long bed plus 4' of flat to put implements on for the same price as what I am seeing for landscape trailers around here. What am I missing here since I was under the impression that tilt trailers were about double? From the pictures they appear to be well built, but has anyone seen or own one of their trailers? Thanks for the help!

    When I was looking, I was looking at a 14K trailer. Price for a car hauler was 3K and a tilt 16 plus 4 was 4.5K.

    I wish I would have bought the tilt! I was looking at the PJ tilt!

    I will sell you my trailer for a great deal if you want. Then I will buy the tilt.

    I never heard of them, but I looked at the PJ tilts years ago as well-I just could not justify it for the little towing I do.

    What are you going to pull it with ? I use a 20' 10K car trailer, but I have a 3/4 ton truck. If you have a 1/2 ton or a suv it may be best to go with a 6k car trailer.

    I am not a big fan of tilt trailers. They are great for hauling a bobcat or car, but for hauling multiple items I'd rather have a ramp trailer.

    Thanks for the offer Brian, but if I bought your trailer, I would not have tilt either!! Your trailer is also too heavy as I am looking at a 7k trailer since obviously my tractor does not weigh anything like yours does. I like the looks of the PJ T5, but cannot justify the 4.5k, which is why I was asking about the MuleTuf since it is 2.5k. Seems too good to be true for that price and I was wondering if anyone had experience with them.

    To ejb69 - yes, I definately should have put into my inquiry what I use for towing. It is a Lincoln Mark Lt, which for the most part, is a Ford F150 Crew Cab. Thanks for your insight into a tilt trailer.

    I have heard of the company you mentioned in mo and have not heard anything good about them. I have purchased three of the pj trailers and can tell you I have never had anything close to the quality of the pj powder coated etc led lights. Don't buy a cheap car hauler you will hate it and it will probably be unsafe to add insult to injury. Unless you plan to haul very heavy items way more than a 1026 and stuff I would opt for the 6000 lb trailer with ramps and make sure your choice has storage for the ramps built in a good brand will have this. I like the wood floors the one I had was great with a metal floor but very slippery.

    I think I was looking at the T6, a 14K trailer. I would think a T5 should be less. 4,500 was the out the door price including a $75 plate and 6% tax.

    That was a sweet trailer, but the $$$ was what holds me back. I don't use it enough to justify the price.

    You say you "have not herd anything good about them". Dose that mean you have herd anything bad about them? I just took a look at there ebay site and for 2500.00 I think it is a good looking trailer, it is basic meaning it don't have LED lights or hydralic tilt, brakes on the 2nd axel is avaliable and thats all the stuff that hikes the price on a trailer.
    I need a trailer but don't have the funds, and I do not need to pull it very often so I think I would take a closer look at these when I do start looking for a trailer.
    Now all that said, If I was using it every day or for a business, then maybe I would look at different trailers and options.
    Just my .02 good luck in your search.

    Sikeston, Missouri has several trailer manufacturers located there.

    Jerry James Trailers http://jerryjamestrailersinc.com/
    Retco Trailers: http://retcotrailers.com/
    Trailer Express: http://www.trailerexpressmfg.com/
    Heartland Trailers: http://heartlandtrailermfg.com/
    Ja-Mar: http://www.jamartrailers.com/
    M & M trailers: http://www.mmtrailers.com/
    L & D trailers: No web site

    There may be more, but it's a place where you can come and just shop around for a day and then buy and bring one home. Trailers all over the place. Most of these manufacturer's will special make one for you if you call them.

    LED lights

    I have LED lights on my trailer and dont care for them. On snowy roads they seem to get snow covered and dont melt off as they dont get hot.
