Most 7k steel deck 18' trailers weigh 2500lbs. Wait....crew cab diesel ON a steel 7k trailer? I'm not comfortable with that even if you are.I think you guys are over thinking this, most buggies weigh 4-5k pounds? I got just a regular 18' steel deck trailer with 2 3500lb axles and haul crew cab diesel trucks all over the place, never any problem, just keep good tires on it.
I've seen crossmember spacing of 16", 18" & 24" on various 10k trailers. It's probably no big deal given our tire width, but 24" makes me nervous too.Sooo i went the new trailer route here a few years ago and went steel deck. removabel fenders. I wanted to be able to haul material with a side kit. The other reason i picked metal was to get the crossmember spacing closer (18") vs 24" with the wood deck....was i crazy for worrying about the 24" spacing on a wood deck for a buggy hauler?
