What GN to go with?

I'm currently looking at GN trailers, for the first time. Looking for a deck over 25'-27', 5-7ton cap, not sure if I want the stand up ramps or the fold flat ones. I've looked at Maxum locally and Appalachian trailers online, Gooseneck Trailers, Gooseneck Trailer

Just looking for advise, what others would suggest looking at, any help is appreciated
Thanks.

P&J trailers would be my preference. I really like the 5' dovetail with fold flat ramps.

Thanks for the replies so far guys. Those P&J trailers look good, I like those hydro jacks. The Big Tex trailers look good as well. How pricey are the gators?
So what is the advantage to going with dual wheels over singles?

I know that if it is under 25K it isnt considered commercial, but I'm not getting anywhere near that, I think at most I'd get a 16K trailer. Is turning or handling any different when towing a trailer with duals over singles.

Only ever hauled singles, but I assume it would ride more stable, never seen tandems on anything under 20ft tho
