FW/GN would've been another $3k plus  another 2k lbs. def would've handled better then the bumper!  even though i was tongue light, i know once balanced that side winds will grab that no matter what.

so yes i do. personally i do not mind the look of the GN vs the FW front. i did discuss it while ordering and it would've been a modified version of the FW frame , same price and weight according to them.

F that! there are some scary trailers out there.  i hope the owner and futur buyers never exceed 60 mph with 53'er lol

sat/sun, i looked at 6 manufacturers for a 24' flat bed.......1 offered a heavy duty car trailer at 24' long but all the others were 20' to 22'. only one company that offered full width deck ( deck over) and up to 22' only. this was all bumper pull of course.

They are like a cheap band-aid. They fail to perform when you need them to the most.  I did my time with them and they were,IMO,better than nothing but fall far,far short of a GN/FW.
