    I thought about an 18, but I'll be doing very little car hauling-mostly lumber, rebar, small vehicles and tools-and weight and maneuverability are big factors. My next trailer may be an 18 or 20 ft tilt bed. Someday.

    How are those shipping experiences going? Is there anything that you will change?

    I finally bought a 16 ft 7,000 lb car hauler made by Diamond C. I like it and have so far been using it to haul lumber. One small thing I don't like is that it only has 3 stake pockets on each side; I would prefer at least 4. When I strap down lumber the only easy place to attach the strapping is the stake pocket. I bought it from a local dealer for a total price of $3800.
