I bought a 7x12 BriMar and not happy at all with it. It has never been used after the 1st snow of the year so it has never been in the salt. The paint is peeling off terribly. I plan on selling it come spring and buying something else. Also my trailer has never been overloaded since I must be weighed at the pit. Most I ever weighed was right around 9700 gross. One day one axle ripped out the axle hangers while trying to back up with a load of mulch. I did notice that the same size PJ trailer is about 350 lbs heavier. Have been told that the scissors lift is the best setup,followed by single cylinder and the worst being a dual cylinder. I am looking possibly for a custom built 6x12 12k capacity just for the heavier axles in case I happen to overload it by accident.
