Pro-Line Trailers - April 14, 2013, 04:45 PM

So I am looking at either a 6x12 or a 7x14 trailer within the next couple of weeks. Anyone have experience with Pro-Line trailers? Pro-Line Trailer Sales|Pro-Line 6x12|Enclosed Trailer Any other recommendations?

Going to start off simple and just pop a Pitbull TRS in there and a chock for the scooter so I don't need anything super fancy.

Double or single axle?
DA have floor joist spacing at 16" (maybe 18"?) where SA are 24". IMO, the 16" spacing is more sturdy. Hit up Dave (Toecutter), I know the owner of the company he works for uses a Proline. The 7x14 DA we borrowed for VIR was pretty well built. A bit beat up, but that is abuse and has nothing to do with build. Floor joist were C channel and not angle.

Single axle if I do the 12 - dual if I do the 14.

The plywood walls are a big + over the Luan shit. One thing to think about: DA uses more fuel to tow and (if you go to NJMP) tolls will hurt. Also, they tend to have brakes which require annual inspection. On the flip side, DA is easier on your vehicle and generally tow better.
Hit Dave up. He can probably get you some more info on Proline while at work tomorrow.

Yea the F150 is going to not even notice a 12 ft trailer with a couple of bikes. Typically planning on only having 1 bike, scooter, and gear for most trips... maybe two bikes and a scoot.

Ended up getting the 7x14 dual axle. Added an electrical package and stabilizers so it will be ready in about 3 weeks.

Oooh... wish I'd seen this earlier....

Our F150 sucked balls towing our dual axle trailer. I seem to remember we averaged 8 mpg towing the race trailer. We usually had a 150R, the tool box and an ATV in the trailer. Part of why we ended up with the diesel Excursion.

Hopefully the newer F150s are better....

I would love it if they would offer a diesel engine in the F150.

Yea its not that hateful. At most its going to have 2 sportbikes, scooter, and general track stuff. Most of the time it will be one bike and all the previous stuff mentioned. I actually towed a much bigger, heavier trailer with the 150 and was surprised how well it did.

Did you have the 5.0L?

I don't remember which size engine it was... the truck was an 01 with a V8. Google is implying it was a 4.6L...

Yea the gearing and engine in those were very low compared to my 2012 5.0 with the better gearing and 6 speed.

Hey you guys with trailers.... what BTU A/C units do you have? Is 13500 enough for a 7x14?
