Trailer shops?

Any recommendation on trailer stores?
In order my preference is:
B'ham area
Nashville area
Knoxville area
North of Atlanta

My preferred trailer is a pointed nose 7x12 with dual axles. I can flex on most things except the axles. (tow vehicle is a GMC 1/2 Sierra with a 4.8L) One with bunks would perfect but probably out of range (places that carry used ???)

Thanks

Re: Trailer shops?

Why the pointed nose? I've been told they're not as stable

More inside space and better mileage. I have heard conflicting reports on the stability.

Re: Trailer shops?

just a heads up sheep, I know in canada if you have more than one axle you need to have trailer brakes, not sure how it is there but that can get to be a lot of money when you figure every thing into the equasion, how much are you hauling?

Exactly why I want dual axle. In the mountains where I will use it a bunch the brakes will save the truck a lot of wear and tear. Also it is safer should I be on slick surfaces (snow or heavy rain). Also to a lesser extent if I am headed across say Kansas and get a flat I can keep going since I still have 3 left and change it at leisure (still plan to carry a spare though)

Actually from work I have some interesting ideas on mileage that might be fun to play with. First though trailer and bike

PS the mileage t=difference I heard was small (0.5MPG)

For instance one thing that would be interesting is take the bubble they want to put on the front and put it on the bottom of the back door (low so it does not interfere with the ramp)

Re: Trailer shops?

North of Atl... It's not excatly what you're looking for ... but the best deal I know of.

Other than that... There are some trailer manufacturers in Ga., one that we sell to. I'll see what I can find out tomorrow.
