    Nice trailer. I saw this posted on facebook last week. Davis Industries LLC out of Dayton Iowa makes the trailer.

    Yea that's all that I have seen I would be interested in the specs and pricing just out of curiosity or watch a video of it unhooking but it's a neat design for a pickup

    What’s the point?

    any machine that’s too tall for a regular flatbed will probably be too heavy to pull with that.

    I’m not mad at it I just don’t see the point.

    It will be nice for farms that want to haul a tractor with something hooked to it you can load it on a normal gooseneck but is hairy backing on or off with the height when you cant see behind you

    Yeah I do that a lot with skid steers, it takes some time to get used to backing blind on a trailer with whatever you’re loading teetering on the edge of the trailer/ramps.

    We hauled bobcats sideways on regular flats, you can unload them off of anything. lol
    I can see the use for that trailer, but I bet the price means a guy better have a lot of use for it. The trailer itself I bet is on the heavy side too.

    I’ve picked up a bomag roller with a skid before at set it in the back of a landscape truck lolol. Super sketchy but it worked. Flatbed was too short for both.

    I’m sure it has it’s uses but it’s a super niche trailer.
