Best place in DFW to buy one? Mine is tired, and I want a 16 foot tandem axle that is light enough i can pull it behind my UTV when needed. 16 foot with gate/ramp built in, tandem axle with brakes. Prefer weight around 1,500 or 1,600 lbs.

Thoughts on where to buy, and not overspend?

I have/had three Tiger trailers, out of Mt Pleasant. The third one, I called them directly, told them exactly what I wanted, and they built it for me in a couple weeks. Once it was done, they let me know the next time they were driving to Sulphur Springs, and we worked out a time to meet to do the paperwork. Saved me an extra two hours of driving.

Really good quality trailers, and great people to work with. I'd definitely do the LED light upgrade.

I've also got a Big Tex, and won't ever buy another. Their quality has gone to pot, in my opinion, and they're banking on their name to sell any more.

380 Trailer in Princeton was good for me. Priced out a few places and they were in line and had a good selection on site.

I recently (last year) ordered a 20ft from AAA trailers in Honey Grove (Bonham) where all the Mennonites build trailers. I think there are 7 different manufacturers in that area. I probably saved $1500 because of how i ordered it...Steel Floor, mesh Sides, etc....
My next one will be what you are talking about but it needs to be Aluminum, so you can Haul your ranger on it and then hook it up and use it for delivering feed etc....gotta go aluminum...looks like around $3k if it is outfitted correctly.

I looked for several months. Finally settled on a CenTex trailer from Grandview Sales and Service. It was well worth the 5+ hour drive to get it. I saved lots of money versus buying one in my area. Easy transaction, too - 30 minutes tops.

Kearney in Emory Tx has a 16’ with a gate that they call a med duty. The frame is slightly smaller angle iron than their normal trailer. It’s still a better trailer than a Big Tex. It is rated at #4000 so no trailer brakes required.

X2 for Grandview trailer sales. Ive bought two trailers from them and if I was needing a third it would be with them.
