Yeah, you really notice how rough roads are when towing a trailer. Makes you grit your teeth. Gotta say other than the issues mentioned, this trailer floated along well when loaded.

A friend has it this week end to haul a small tractor so it is getting good use.

Re: Bought a new high quality locally built car trailer

I called Imperial trailer about the ramp falling out and the retention pin bent upwards. They said sorry that happened, bring it down and we will take care of it for you. While I havenít had time to take it there, I am really pleased with their response. Awesome customer service.

Now, the jack foot retention pin disengaging was my fault. I screwed the jack up too high, causing the retention pin handle to contact the frame. This caused the pin to back out allowing the jack foot to drop. Hmm...I need to post this one over in the stupid mistakes I have made discussion thread.

At least they are going to take care of you and you didn't bend the jack.

For sure! It could have been a lot worse.

A friend borrowed it to haul a small tractor and it was pretty dirty after. I couldnít stand that....
