Default Car Hauler Trailer

Looking for a car hauler trailer with 7000lb axles. Have looked at the PJ and Load Trail so far, what kind of quality are these trailers? What other brands of trailer would you recommend? I want to put a 1000 gal tank and chem handler on it to haul water to my sprayer with a 3/4 ton truck with bumper hitch.

I just purchased a PJ trailer for the same use, i personally think the PJ is a bit better built then the load trail but not as well built as a precision but they're more money. Only had my PJ a week but like it so far i went with the 22ft.

Did you go for the car hauler or the deck above wheels? I was also looking at a 22' power tilt deck from PJ but not sure how much I would use the tilt. Thought that a car hauler being lower would be easier to use.

We have a car hauler with fenders....if we bought again would buy deck over because it's a real pain if you want to load and unload stuff with forks on it (i.e.: seed, chem, etc) Being lower is nice for getting on and off but you could weld a little ladder on pretty easy.

I went witht the car hauler with the fenders cause of how easy it is to get on and off, i know its not as easy for putting things on with forks but the 22ft makes a little more space for that anyway

sasksodbuster,

I replied to your thread over on NewAgTalk as well. I have a 20' for sale if you are interested. More info in your thread over there.

I haul daily with a PJ, well built trailers, but paint quality sucks - ours is a late '06, seen a few others that I can spot a mile away because of the rust. Other than that happy with ours, nothing exceptional but it's a generic trailer.

Our PJ trailer works just fine. We routinely haul our 10,000lb skid steer often enough and nothing has broken or worn out in the last 6 years.

I also had a car hauler with fenders in the way and it was a PITA for loading totes or anything else for that matter. The axles are not far enough back so the tank has to be mounted pretty much in the center of the deck which wastes space at one end. The only thing I did like about it was that you could hook up with another truck or tractor to move it around. I switched to a 26' gooseneck which distributes the weight better and has alot more deck space and I mounted a folding rv step on one side for accessibility. The only drawback is that I have to use my truck with the fifth wheel in it to move it around but it is also easier to hook up.
