    I'm looking at buying a used 2003 Haulmark. It's 13', a V-nose (?), single axel, and has aftermarket brakes. It's covered.
    I'll be carrying around about 2000 pounds of machinery on a highway, slightly bumpy.
    Do I need dual axels with 2000Lbs? I'm told it's a good thing but I want to cut any weight off that I can for mileage.
    There are other brands out there but Haulmark seems to be moderately well built. And well built for the price. I just can't afford one of the expensive models.
    Any thoughts on that?
    Anything in particular that I should be checking on the trailor?
    THANKS! I appreciate anything at all here.

    double ax. will make you more stable at higher speeds and less stress on the rear

    Thanks Mtman. It's true. That much uneven weight needs more than what I've been doing....
