Looking for some experience on a question. I am moving across the country soon, and plan on bringing some of my belongings with me in a trailer and having the rest moved professionally.
I have the following options:
1) Buy a SA 6x12 v-nose for about $1800 and trying to add brakes. I don't want to carry much more than 3500#'s for the sake of being easy on the truck anyway, so the axle rating doesn't bother me too much.
2) Buy a DA 7x14 v-nose for about $2500 and adding nothing (brakes included). It can carry way more than I feel comfortable with, but for the price difference it almost seems worth it?
The problem is that the bigger one weighs in about 500 lbs more. So I'd be paying about $500 extra (after brake install on the smaller trailer) for more space I may/may not use and hauling an extra 500#'s for nothing.
What do you guys think?
