So for money reasons ill be going to Lowes, Home Depot or Tractor Supply for a trailer since I can apply for a credit card to put it on I have it narrowed down to the 3 following links im asking for a little help pick the best one to haul 3 gts. All three of these are in stock at local stores ive read all the reviews just having a hard time deciding which one to get.

I don't know Greg, none of them really have good reviews. You might be better off going to a local trailer dealer and looking around. Might cost you a little more, but the quality will be much better than what you buy at any box store. The Home Depot trailer doesn't have any reviews yet, however after looking the trailer over, I don't think the jack will last long as it doesn't appear to be of good quality. I personally like the jack stands that can be folded back and out of the way when not in use. 

I'd rather spend a little more money and have the comfort of being safe, rather than go cheaper and worry about my load each time I used the trailer. Just my two cents worth.

Out of those three I vote for TSC unit as we have one at work and I used it several times to hall mine to shows until I bought an enclosed trailer and had no issues with it. The 7x 12 will only fit three and the small side gate is very helpful. If your thinking of doing more shows and expanding the collection my pop traded up to a 7 x 16 and he fits five on his but a bit tightly with decks on. Like Troy said the nice thing about buying one from a dealer is warranty/service . The choice is yours but I will say an enclosed trailer makes it great for storing them

If money would allow it this year I would go to a dealer to get a dual axle 18ft landscaping trailer. But I'm hoping a decent one will get me by for a year or two until I can afford a bigger trailer an by then I might have enough gts to fill an 18ft trailer.

Looks good Greg! Congrats. I can see it fully loaded, and pulling in the Root's parking lot. Now you'll just have to repaint it from black to John Deere Green!  :lol:
