There are a number of things I really like about your trailer. The spare axle and parts is a big necessity to me. I like the built in gas tank and the recessed D rings.

The only thing I would do differently is not have drive over fenders like that. I prefer a flat bed over the fenders. Winching/dragging an A arm over a trailer fender is not fun.

Its a matter of choice. We build both but this keeps a lower center of gravity.

It was the 06, 1000 we were just before Puerto Escondido, I was the last guy in the caravan, the truck was a new Chevy with 4 wheel steer in front of me towing a huge enclosed low profile full of bikes and quads. Semi coming the other way, I saw and the other driver saw and he pinned it, I backed off, he just cleared the bridge when they passed each other, the wall of air just pushed the trailer off the road and was now crabbing down the lip on the edge of the road, rear steer made a tug and it jumped back on the road and bounced a couple of times, by then he was off the gas. There was no way he would have survived if it had it not been low center, there wouldn't have been any thing left for a yard sale.

For a relatively light buggy....wait for it. A narrow, single axle trailer with the new Timbrin 7500 lb independents and 16" wheels. Sweet sauce for Mexico.

My Yiro trailer came out pretty nice. I specifically wanted a small light trailer I could tow my UTV on with a 1/2 ton vehicle. Between the two boxes on each side, the tongue box, and the back of the Suburban we had more than enough room for all our race gear for NORRA. It also has a 40 gallon fuel tank built in which comes in super handy for a race like NORRA when you can't get premium gas or when PEMEX stations run out of fuel.

Its 85" wide, the bed is 15', and it weighs 2500 with the fuel tank. No problems towing with the 1500 suburban with the 5.3L engine.

I drove a Dodge with a TT from Anaheim to Park City Utah on Monday and I think the owner said it was a YIRO flatbed and it was one of the first ones they built (he has two matching flatbeds). I was really impressed with how well it towed. Speed limits in Utah are 80mph and this thing felt perfectly stable the entire drive.

The new craze in off road trailers coming out of Yiro Trailers are the 22’ and 26’ deck overs which feature plenty of storage and available upgrades.

Diamond C was running an add on RDC for a long time as well. I liked how they ran the frame the tongue is attached to all the way to the axels compared to Yiro stopping at the full width of the chassis. Please let me know if you guys think that makes a difference at all.

Thanks!

I seen the tongue's crack on a couple of yiros a few years back and i was looking at a nice 32' vimetal trailer last week that was built last year and the gussets on the tongue had been rewelded because of cracking, they use 6 inch tubing and probably to thin of wall for the size of the trailer, where diamond c and carson use 8 inch.

I have a carson deck over thats never had an issue in the 15 years i've owned it and i ordered a Diamond c deck over that i need to go pick up.

I know the trailer weight that vimetal and yiro have told customers inquiring have been lighter than what the diamond c is but i'd rather have a trailer that is a few hundred pounds heavier and doesn't crack apart over time.

And across the board really. I've recently been quoted by local dealers of about 4 months from PJ and about 6 months from Diamond C.

Call trailer source in nevada, they have a lot of stock and on mine they had a production slot that was 5 weeks out and they replaced there stock trailer with my custom built trailer and it was finished on time.

I'm building out my trailer currently. Tandem 8 lug 7K axles. Looking to add tire storage in the front, a fuel cell, winch, and tool storage. What are people using for the fuel pump for the onboard transfer tanks?

Thinking about it, we're just filling 5 gallon Hunsakers, I guess we could use gravity with a bung on the bottom. Already burned through one fill-rite motor. Thanks in advance.
