Default Anyone know about Nextrail Trailers?

I got a price for a triple axil trailer, 10,500 lb, brakes on 2 axils, 14" wheels, 6 ply tires, built for my boat. $4300.00 delivered to my house.

Are these good trailers? Good Price?

I have owned the same exact trailer for a couple years now,have put a lot of high speed miles on it and it's been a great trailer.I went up to the factory to pick mine up and the people there were totally straight up to work with.It tows like a dream.Are you getting the torsion bar axles , if not i would recomend them ,they were only a few hundred to upgrade to.

I talked to Gary and he said the torsion bar axels are not good.

We just pulled a brand new 37 Active Thunder back from Pompano Beach on one. Had no issues with it after 1100 miles. Brakes worked, boat was well supported, and it rode real good, even on rough roads.

Ditto used to be Towmaster. Had the same trailer. Paid $3400 with one set of brakes seven years ago. Seems a good price delivered.

What weight are the individual axles rated for? 3500lbs I am guessing?

NOT good. Torsion axles are fine, however, go for 5000 or 6000 lbs axles. You will thank me later. If you blow a tire/wheel/bearing, and try to limp home/off the road with 2 out of 3 on a side, you willd damage your good axles. As you ascend and decend ramps with the boat on the trailer, you will find most of your weight is on the front axle of the trailer. Often the rear axle is completely off the ground. This will wear out and possibly break the torsion suspension of your front axle, as well as bend your spindles, create havoc on your bearings, and obviously destroy your tires. I have a 9500 lb boat on a trailer rated for 15000 lbs. You can't have too much capacity.

yes, it is a "good buy" to purchase more than you need up front...definitely.

I have a Fastload (very similar to the Nextrail) and agree with what Sydwayz has to say about capacity. I'm pulling a 8,000 dry weight 31ft boat on a 15,000 trailer also.
