I'm in the market for a new trailer to tow the 855D and was wondering if anyone with a 8xx series Gator has used a CargoMax trailer to do so. Living in the northeast aluminum and polymer bed have it's advantages. Biggest concern is with the 72" width. Currently using a 77"x120" steel trailer that has seen its better days.

Cargo-Max Trailer

Looking for thoughts, experiences and concerns from the group.

Nice looking trailers, are they using different material on the tandem axle or are they using the same material as the single axle ?

I use a 20' flatbed which is overkill. It is a tilt so easy to drive stuff up on it vs. ramps you have to aim at. Since I got it for my tractor with whatever accessories I need for the job, I never saw a need for something else. That said, if I were to do a lot of hunting/camping at various locations, I'd go for a smaller unit.

I believe it is the same. Not looking for a lot of capacity, but concerned the bed is a bit tight for the Gator width. Thinking about 13’ length.

Torsion galvanized axles.

Thinking it could also handle other chores - wood mulch etc.

Torsion axles are great, my only concern with aluminum trailers is the tendency for welds cracking and frame twisting -if- you use on unimproved roads.
