 Opinions on Load Trail Trailers

I would like any first-hand experience anyone has on Load Trail 14000 GVW bumper pull trailers. I am sure there are better trailers on the market, however I was looking at this trailer based on economics and the trailers should fit my needs. I have 10 older and One new tractor.The trailer has 83 inches between the fenders and only three of the tractors are wider than that. I have heard but not seen about putting some blocks on the trailer to drive the tractor above the fenders. Does anyone have experience with this approach?

 Opinions on Load Trail Trailers

How many tractors are you planning to haul at one time any way? 14,000lb. bumper pull doesn't sound right since you'll have a hard time finding a.) a receiver hitch rated at that much and b.) a hitch ball for the same reason. Not to mention a rough and jerky ride. Sounds like you may want to think about a deck-over-axles gooseneck trailer---and you might be able to put ramps up to the upper gooseneck region. We did this for hauling a bunch of ATV's and sand rails to the dunes. If you did it right you could have yourself a new-car-carrier style hauler where you could have electric-over-hydraulic operated ramps drop down over the hitch, drive the machine up and lift the ramps, then drive the next tracgtor under the the raised ramps.

 Opinions on Load Trail Trailers

While I don't have that exact trailer, I have a couple of it's cousins, 12k Bri-Mar bumper pulls.

While almost everything we have fits between the fenders, a few of our turf machines are wider. In most cases we either, depending on the machine, take off the outer dual wheel, or swap the rears left to right and turn them dish in, rather than dish out.

EW is right, most wide machines go on deck over wheels type of units.

Other than that, no complaints, the trailer sits out the back and behaves itself just fine. In our case the tow vehicles are big enough that the tongue weight is no issue, but if that is not the case for you, a weight distributing hitch may be required.

Best of luck.

In some States, having a trailer with that GVW requires special licensing, reflective stickers and a chauffeur's or similar license. Although it is not always enforced until you get a ticket or in an accident.

 Opinions on Load Trail Trailers

I only plan to haul one tractor at a time. I was looking at the 14000 GVW because it has some features that a 10000 GVW doesn't have such as brakes on both axels. I don't want a gooseneck trailer due to the cost of the trailer and the hitch.

Yooper I think that's if the vehicle is a dually used for commercial purposes then you need a CDL over 26,000 lb. If the trailer has 3 axles regardless of the truck you have to have CDL. I have a 3/4 ton pulling about 15,000 lb. with only a Chauffer license and Gross Elected Weight plates/tags up to 24,000 lb. GCWR.

I don't remember the exact USDOT laws but I beleive any trailer over 2,000 lb. loaded has to have brakes on one axle, and over 3,000 lb. brakes on all axles.

 Opinions on Load Trail Trailers

I don't agree with it, but up here in Cannuckistan, the reg.'s are pretty soft as regards to trailers.

A 'regular' drivers licence allows you to drive any truck (with hydraulic brakes) or a combination of truck and trailer up to 24,200 pounds, provided the trailer itself is not over 10,120 pounds (actual weight, not GVWR).

A trailer over 3,000 pounds only has to have "adequate" brakes for the weight.

This allows some weinnie who has no idea what he's doing to go down the road with a pretty big load.

Further, and even scarier, the annual commercial inspections do not apply, and are not required, for RV's. So as long as the truck is under 11,000 pounds GVWR, neither the truck nor camper have to ever be inspected.

Let me tell you, the thought of an unchecked 10,000 pound 5th wheel on the back of an unchecked pickup, with a driver who may never have driven one before, scary the bejeebers out of me.

Best of luck.
