trailer weight 18 16 open

#1 Post by jaspermaggie » Sat Jul 10, 2010 12:45 pm

I am thinking of getting a trailer. I have a 55 chevy about 3500lb. My problem is I have an 00 ford explorer v6 3.73 auto 2wd. I would only go about 100m round trip and not that much. What does a 18" and 16" trailer weigh? I will eventually get a silverado. I am getting the cart before the horse.
My car is not as fast as I think it is.

My 18' H&H speedloader weighed 2000 lbs. I pulled it with a half ton GMC w/ 3.55s just fine.

Its a very good trailer for the money I think they are about $1800 now. Its very light in the front and has a long tounge which I think helps keep the weight distibuted in the right places. Ive had a full size service truck,blazer,,impala,and all kinds of cars on it.Towed my big block 66 chevelle with the trunk and interior full of stuff 3200 miles across country with no issues.
