Gooseneck length...

Well we have a 22' tilt bed trailer, 6' stationary, 16' tilt and we are looking to get rid of it and move to a gooseneck so we can haul hay for our farm now and stuff... my dad doesn't know exactly what we should get but he was thinking around 26', what do y'all think we should get??? we use it for snow removal in winter so it will be used in town some but yea, what y'all think??? thanks!

I suppose it all depend on your situation. Our farm delivers allot of hay in tighter areas, so we have a much shorter trailer. How many bales do you deliver on average. We usually deliver 200 bales at the most and we can fit it on a 16' trailer okay.

Would you use it to haul snow removal equipment? Then it would depend on which pieces of equipment, and how many, you would need to haul. If your doing allot of town driving then I would want to be close to 20', especially if you have to maneuver in tight parking lots.

There would be no tight parking lots and yes we would use it for snow removal! it would be for personal use on our farm with picking up hay and hauling our skid loader and stuff...

Yeah, I guess the standard small square bale size, maybe about 3-3 1/2 feet long. 200 bales is a BIG load for us, don't get me wrong, but we've done it before. We have also modified our trailer a bit in the front so the bales can hang over a few feet, so maybe we have closer to 18' of usable space for hauling bales. Sorry I don't have any pictures. I wish I would have taken a picture that last time I hauled hay. I had about 50-60 bales in the bed of the truck, and another 150 or so on the trailer (bumper pull)

This is 100 on our 18' bumper pull, there is no way I would be willing to go over the road with 200 on this trailer.



Sorry back on topic.
I'm looking for a 35'ish gooseneck.

We have a 26' gooseneck that we use to haul hay and pretty much anything else. we havnt bought a square bale in years but it will haul 8-11 round bales pretty easy. I have hauled it through tight streets several times and have never had any trouble getting where I am going. you just have to drive like you got a little sense.
