Mine stops very good, like anything else that size and weight you sure don't want to tailgate....and need to perform the recommended maintenance and no problems....pulled mine up an down the east coast last year for eight weeks and never had a problem

Although it's an older trailer but this looks to be a decent deal, if I were in the market I would be inquiring. jmho

You get what you pay for in this world and the bank will give you a loan if you have a job. I bought my first one in 88 (with a loan) and didn't lose any money on it so in the long run is it really ludacriss expensive? i think not just a good investment.

I meant air ride was on a straight axle not independent like the torsions (but hey maybe somebody does make one now).
The problem with torsion axles and cheap trailers is they mount on a small pad and transfer all of the shock torque into the week chassis and then the frame cracks/breaks. Not the axles fault but the trailer design/steel thickness.....I have welded the frames in 2 different trailers with torsion axles after they were torn out. One haulmark and the other was a Pace
Well lets see about these great torsion axles you speak of. Here is a quote right off dexters site:
CAUTION: Triple axle assemblies are not recommended for Torflex axles" I didn't make it in bold either they did. here is the link: http://www.dexteraxle.com/torflex_axles

So they must know something.

Isnt this the whole reason were in this mess right now. Cause if you got a job you get a loan. I have excellent credit, I have a very nice Classic LQ trailer, a nice racer, two Juniors, all the toys I want. I just didnt see the need for a $1,000 a month trailer payment. Lets make sure we got it right. I am saying a Goldrush is the TOP OF THE LINE in trailers. I am also saying the majority of racers dont want/cant afford one.

As far as the triple axle recommendation. Hell, I have no idea. I cant believe Dexter or the 10,000 manufacturers out there who build triple axle trailers could let this happen if there was an issue. I've warrantied Dexter via their in house warranty on triple axle trailers and it was never even mentioned. DUNNO???
