New. Needs to be long enough for a full size single cab short bed truck with a 16" wing and a golf cart. Would 15-20k be enough for a fully optioned deal (winch, bench, cabinets, interior/exterior lights, geny, nice floor, extended ramp/door, outlets, and anything else I'm forgetting, the works).....

I'm thinking 32-34'. I've tried pricing these around with options and my face ends up exploding before I can make any decisions or get to any final numbers. I'm in Houston, Tx so I would like to buy local if I could.

Used - yes
New - no

What you spec'd is around $30k

My GN is 34' (26' on the floor). I have a G body and I might be able to sneak a golf cart in and my cabinets are on the side. If I had a 36' (28' on the floor) no problem. The deal I got on it, I couldn't pass it up.

I would look into getting something 36' or longer.

I spec'd out my 38' Vintage much like the one above except with a tapered nose and 12" extra height and it was just over 21k.

If you keep an eye out you can find a nice used one with what your wanting in your price range.

I got a used 2007 36' United (28' on floor) in very good condition last fall for $10,500. Has cabinets, winch, finished floor and walls, 3 x 6K# axles.

How does the SRW truck handle the trailer?

Truck actually drives better with the trailer on it then not... I am not kidding....

Truck does great.. Stops awesome.. Pulls Awesome... Don't even know its back there really..

Trailer is 8k. 2600k car 1k gear and a 600lb quad...

The triple 6k axle setup with the larger wheels and heavier rated tires was the best way to go. No issues..

My interest in getting one new would be financing. I don't have 20k in cash that I can straight up spend on a trailer and while much cheaper, I'm not sure how financing a used trailer would work or if anyone even does that. I also, I'm not real interested in paying for someone else's much needed maintenance. I really don't have the room to refurb a trailer at the moment.

When you get a used one it will have usually all the extra hangers, maybe a winch, maybe a generator and a bunch of stuff you don't think of when you spec a new one. I had all that in our Pace we sold and didn't realize how much we had added till we got the new one.

its simple time is money. add ons you install saves some money but cost you time. youll be doing some add on's plan on it. buy a used trailer do some maint, cost you time but saves you money. good used trailer are out there!! its all about choices, time and money your willing to spend.

That looks like a pretty good deal. Should give you about 26' of floor for your car and golf cart. Only thing I would do different is mount the cabinets on the road side for 2' more floor.
