"Looking at a GN"
Absolutely...YESSSS!
A GN is truly fantastic compared to a bumper pull!
Although it may take a little rigging to get it to work with my Expedition, but I'm sure we can find some way of getting it to work. :D

Either that or I will have to use my dad's Ram 2500 or my BIL F450 until I get my own rig.

When I had a GN I had an F-250, and it was GREAT!
Then bought a Suburban with 454, and had to get a bumper pull.
Using the 14K (loaded to 12K max) bumper pull behind the Suburban was miserable, compared to the GN on the F-250.

Just cut the top off that Expedition, and the GN will work fine.😪
Being nearly 82 now it is all gone ......except for the 14K bumper pull, which is in my barn on blocks.
I could pull that with my son's Suburban, if I should need to.

Perhaps you can send me a couple of yours for an independent evaluation. I will send them back ... I promise! :unsure:

If you overnight them I can test them out on the MX6000HST this Saturday as it makes its way to its final resting place on 50 acres up near Polebridge, MT. A beautiful spot to live out its days. :cry:

It'll probably be puttering around Bowman Lake from time to time.

Here's a few pics of the new trailer after applying a coat of used ATF on the PT decking. 20 ft trailer took every bit of a gallon of ATF. Total cost, about $2 for a brush. Sorry, no tractor in this picture.

There is no greasy feel whatsoever on the deck boards after a day. The ATF soaked into the wood almost immediately. It would appear to me to be a better option than the used engine oil I used on another trailer. I'm planning on a second coat of used ATF before winter, maybe.

Looks good. Is there a piece of steel plate that covers the transition from the flat deck to the dovetail? My trailer has that to protect the wood at the joint.

No, unfortunately.
