    Texas Pride Trailers

    Any reason not to buy one? I can drive down to TX and buy a new gooseneck from their outlet for as much as a beat to shit GN costs here in Colorado


    Just want a shorty 20ft or so for hauling around my chit. If I need to haul another rig I'll just rent.

    2nd hand info, take it for what it's worth.

    My buddy had one and sold it because it was way too big. He also said he'd never buy that brand because the axles used one of a kind parts that were hard to find.

    I was interested in them when I was dump trailer shopping. They have 18 and 20k single wheel models which I thought was interesting.

      That is a good point on the axles -- apparently they are made in house.

        even their new trailer prices look pretty good. I noticed a few things i dont like in the pictures, bu for the price i expected worse.
        My areas the same way, a destroyed trailer cost just about the same as a new one

          Seems like for 5k I can buy a new trailer that might need axles and wiring work or buy a used one much the same

            May not be a huge issue for you, just worth mentioning.

            Why a gooseneck in that length? Keep people from borrowing it?

            Do they make a "buggy hauler" version? (full width deck and drive over fenders)

              Yep, that's about it


              Also, the convenience of parking in suburbia and a driveway in a ski town


              ​​​my buddy is pushing me to look at a 24' for the convenience of hauling full sticks of tube and any full size trucks if I need.

              I found this trailer which seems like a better value. I rented a 40 ft Iron Bull and liked it. Full width deck, drive over fenders, and they have Dexter axles too...

              A car hauler would meet the majority of need so I should be considering a cheap one. I have been using a loaner 20' PJ for the last year and have been content for the most part.

                I'm not fond of TPT. I had one of their 5 car trailer's. I had wiring issues within the first week then over the course of a year had axle issues, 2 separate hydraulic issues, original tires wore out in 3 months and some structural issues. Had to take it all the way back to Texas for them to fix it, I love in southern Oregon. That being said they fixed everything at no charge and paid my fuel to get there and back. That's a pretty nice trailer in that last post, I'm looking for one like it but with a tilt deck and a little more GVW

                  They're a solid meh. I passed as I was willing to pay more for a better trailer. It's a trailer you give your hired hands to go fuck up and buy another one in a few years.

                  If you want to jew them, just get on their website and do the live chat.

                  I'd buy this, as the same price point, over texas pride any day

                  8" I beam instead of channel and true drive over fenders. I liked how much attention to detail iron bull does on the toolbox. But they waste a lot of deck space with how the build their tongue supports.

                    Isn't that the company that got fined TWICE for having tons of illegals working there?

                    Nothing to ad other than I drive by their mfg facility a few times a month when going out of town, yet nobody around here uses those trailers. It's all Big Tex, Kearney and PJ trailers out here. That should tell you something about them.

                      Yeah after all the feedback I'm gonna buy a cheap car hauler with dexter axles and keep on keeping on. Need for the GN has dissolved with some life changes over the last few months but that hasn't kept me from wanting one anyways.

                          .
                          I am pretty sure that Big Tex had the same issues.

                            They use dexter axles for those referring to the odd axles.

                            other than that..their trailers are nothing to be prideful of. rewired ours before it even hit the road. electrical tape connections, etc

                              Not the tandem dual dump my buddy had.

                              Lots of those places hire illegals, why do you think all the trailers are made near the border except pj, they just straight up make them in Mexico. Pick your poison.


                              I still like Maxxd, the company I worked for had dozens of 20' tilt trailers and I liked the Maxxd the best. They aren't leaps and bounds better, but I got by dump trailer otd for what other places had for sticker price. And I got all the little options that are extra on most brands (roll up tarp, spare tire, solar charger, ect)

                              They also make a tilt deck buggy hauler.
