I'll soon be buying a 24' Kaufman gooseneck equipment trailer....that much I've decided. I just can't quite decide if I want the tilt trailer or one with ramps. Weight difference is minimal, less than 200lbs. Price is a couple hundred different, not a big deal in the grand scheme of things and you get a discount if you pay in full at pickup. This trailer will mainly haul my Kubota L4400 and I'm sure some vehicles now and then. I've been leaning very heavily towards the tilt because: - no dovetail, less chance of dragging the ass end of it all the time - no ramps to have to pick up! - it just seems easier It has a 10' fixed front deck, the tilt part is 14'6. The only question I have is, can you shut the valve on the hyd ram under the tilt to hold the deck up to load something longer, like a truck? I've talked to a sales rep for about 30 minutes and that was the only question I didn't think to ask. So what say ye NC4x4?
