I am looking at purchasing a new goose-neck tilt trailer and have a few questions. What is the best fit trailer i can pull with my truck? I've seen them range from 7ton to 12 ton and up. My truck is a Ford f350 7.3 diesel with a single rear wheel. Does any one have any suggestions on a manufacturer? Ive looked at pj and load and trail which both seem decent. I'm thinking i want a trailer in the 24' size range with a full deck tilt. What do you guys think?

I have a PJ 28+5 tandem dual GN that I pull behind my '06 6.0 F-350. I load it heavy and the truck has no problems. However, I don't believe that your truck is equipped with engine braking as mine is. I think that 24 ft would be a very long full tilt. If I were buying new I would look for paint as opposed to powder coat. The powder coat blows away in the wind pretty fast.

Are you going to put more than one object on the trailer? The tilts I've seen only are a part tilt deck,make loading 2 pieces on relly difficult. Might be better off with a dove tail that levels out flat.

I have a new 14,000lb PJ Model F8 24 foot 102 wide low profile with third ramp and weight empty 4,400LBs. The trailer is a nice pulling trailer loaded or empty. I like the low profile for loading and it brings down your center of gravity.What I don't like about tilt trailers is you have to load and unload on a flat surface. If you were setting on little side hill and raise trailer with tractor in nose of trailer you could flop trailer.

i think you should stick with 24 foot any more and your rear tires will get hot and might blow with a load if you had dual rear wheels you could get most any size you wanted

I pull a 24' goose neck behind an f-250 with a 7.3 diesel and have had no problems. My traler has two 7000 lb. axils with single wheels. I can haul two smaller tractors(m, 88, 44, u, ect)but a GVI MM is a big load by its self.

04 F350, crew, 4x4, single rear, 6.0 diesel.
Bought a LoadTrail (LoadMax)23+5 GN triple single with weight reduced on plate (my choice). Was cheaper than tandem dual and I haul pt and small sp old combines.
No problems, but next truck will have dual rears. Gives you a wider frame and bit more stability with the dualls.

id go with a partial tilt, and even them get a power tilt, we USED to have a manual tilt trailer at the company yard, fine if your hauling say a loader by itself, push the bed down with the loader bucket and hop on the trailer, BUT whatr if what your loading doesnt have a front bucket? grrr! now you got to figure out a way to tilt the trailer so you can get the machine on it, and then what if you haul 2 machines, with a full tilt you load the first one, the bed goes down, your chain the machine in place, then go for the second... guess what? now you really got a problem with a full tilt, you cant get the @#$%! bed to tilt with the 1st machine on it, partial power tilt is the only way to go the bed tilts no mater what your loading, with fixed front half the 1st machine is usually clear of the tilt portion so loading the second machine is not a problem, as to the full tilt trailer ... the company no longer owns that one,lol

I have a 22", 7K car hauler with 18" tilt. Like ericlb says, 1 narrow unit is okay, like small tractors, etc. I just ordered a Load Max GN 34" with 10" hyd tail with duals. I will be pulling it with F250 6.7 SRW short bed crew cab. This way I can haul 2 tractors and put the Kubota RTV on the rear. I have a 53" DD Transcraft with a 5" beavertail and ramps. I can get 4 tractors and an ATV using the top deck but the ramps do not have room to fold over flat. Also getting into some places is impossible but it is heavy duty. I only gave $3500 for it but after new tires, rims, beaver tail, and floor, it is still a rusty trailer.

I want a deck over with a pop up dovetail. I have
parked a F-20 on the tail and popped it up with one
hand on the lift bar.

First off I"ll say what are you hauling. Match your trailer needs to your loads. There are a lot of good trailers out there and alot have great features. In my case I needed a trailer that would handle wide and heavy loads. I chose a Donahue made in Durham ks. 29" (24" deck + 5" dovetail) The trailer bed expands from 8.5" to 12.5" hydraulicly. Triple 7000lb tortion axles with brakes on all axles and 14 ply tires. The same hydraulic control also runs the hydraulic jack (landing gear) Really great when you need to detach when loaded. I pull it with a Ford F-350 4x4 single rear 14 ply tires with 7.3 and auto. It handles the weight fine. This is NOT a cheap trailer or a light weight hauler. But will be around long after I"m gone.

I like the torsion axles on my tandem trailer but a while ago someone posted a link that torsion axles shouldn't be used on a triple axle trailer.

I wouldn't know why. mine is 14 years old now and never a problem. still carries weight fine and side stress doesn't show. And I have cranked mine hard several times with a load. I have seen triple axle with spring carriers bent from side stress.
