Well you folks talked me out of getting a wood chipper and perhaps rightly so. Now let's see what good advice you have on trailers. I plan to start developing my property in the spring. I expect I'll be wanting to haul a certain amount of material out to my property, especially considering I live in a province with no federal sales tax and a lower provincial tax then the province where my property is. I want to get a trailer to haul material & equipment but am a bit undecided on what to buy. I'm leaning towards the lowbed tandem axle trailers with breaks but they pretty much start at 16' and I'm thinking that might be a bit much and also 'big bucks'. On the other hand the few trailers I've seen in the 10' or 12' range have no breaks. I'm really wondering about the merits of taking a trailer with a GVW of 2,000 to 2,500lbs. and no independent breaks on the highway and through the mountains even though it is legal. I would be using an Explorer which has a GVW of around 5,000 lbs. What are your thoughts on using a trailer with no independent breaks? Thanks for your oppinions.
