Re: Best Gooseneck Trailer??

Hillsboro is by far the best built trailer out there. They are a lil pricey though.

Re: Best Gooseneck Trailer??

I was at a farm auction yesterday and noticed several people towing big tex trailers. They appear to be a very nice trailer also.

Thanks! I'm a principle with Brute Trailers, so if you need anything specifically let me know. I will put us up against any trailer on the market.

Re: Best Gooseneck Trailer??

I have a PJ and am very happy with it. It only has 7000 lb. axles, but it is built heavier than a lot 10 ton trailers I have seen. I like Big Tex as well.

Re: Best Gooseneck Trailer??

Just bought a Brute. Very happy with it. I drove out and picked it up at the shop. They are a busy, full time operation and after talking with the owners and getting a tour, I'm positive that they will stand behind their trailer.

Re: Best Gooseneck Trailer??

Another vote for Brute Trailers. I bought a 28" Flat Deck from them. Great people to deal with and a first class quality trailer. By far and away the best trailer for the money.

Re: Best Gooseneck Trailer??

Names I've heard over and over with no negative feedback are H&H trailer and PJ trailers.

Re: Best Gooseneck Trailer??

As one that has shopped around for a trailer alot in the last two years, the names I kept seeing and that look to be great trailers are Big Tex, PJ, Brute, to name a few,, there are many out there. Just do some research, good feedback here too I see of course. I have a Take Three wedge, and Kaufmann two car flat bed,, both only 14k trailers.

Re: Best Gooseneck Trailer??

H&H makes a quality trailer. Usually a bit spendy, but sometimes it paying more makes sense...
