I heard back from PJ today and what you say is more true than I realized, their 16+4 tilt deck weighed almost 4,200lbs and a 18+2 was under 3,000. I knew there was more steel in a tilt but 1,200 worth is crazy, it sure uses up a chunk of your capacpity.I've only been around one tilt deck trailer and that was years ago. That one was a manual tilt deck, bumper pull in the 20 foot range. It was stupid heavy and expensive in comparison to the non-tilt deck trailers with same ratings and sizes. But the bossman had a good year, so wanted the more expensive option for tax purposes.
