Been looking for a small utility trailer to make my wood gathering a little easier. This is the first year I've been burning and have had several opportunities for free or nearly free wood that I had to decline due to no easily available trailer. I'm looking at two trailers. Both are 5x10, 3500 lb axles, 15 inch tires, one has a wood floor and one has steel mesh. Both are about the same price at $800 new. The biggest differences is the one with the steel mesh floor has a GVWC of 2,000 and the other one is 2,990. Both are from different trailer shops - the guy with the 2,000lb capacity trailer says his are manufactured in GA and anything over 2K needs brakes, he says the trailer is capable of the higher weight because of the 3500lb axle and standard size wheels. Also, both have the triangulated tongue. The biggest difference is I have to drive about 200 miles round trip to buy the trailer stamped for 2990 lbs. Any opinions?
