He lied twice. Can you spot them?What makes you say this?
I have a N&N dump trailer and love it. 6x12 10k gvw and it cost me about $6k US dollars. I bought it a year and a half ago when the exchange rate was favorable. Drove from Pennsylvania to Ontario to pick it up and had no issues getting it back across the border or titling it in PA. Had to pay 13% Canadian tax but filled out a form to get a full refund (took about 8 weeks).
Telescopic front mount 3 stage lift, tarp kit and adjustable hitch come standard. Aluminum box to house the controls. I got the "light duty" model so no ramps (available but extra and are side mount). Empty trailer weight is 2700#.
Heavy duty version has ramps that mount underneath and the entire trailer weighs considerably more. I didn't want to mess with DOT regulations with trailers over 10k GVW. If I went with trailer over 10k GVW, my local trailer store said I would have to register my truck (2008 GMC 2500 Duramax) and trailer in combination at an annual fee of $400+! I know there is a lot of debate about this but I didn't want to bother. Bigger trailer costs more and is heavier so payload isn't significantly more.
I live in the rust belt so paint/powder coat wasn't an option - most look awful within a few years. I also looked at aluminum from Mission trailer in New Hampshire (IIRC) but a 10K GVW trailer was $10k!
