I'm upgrading my decoy trailer from a very light-duty 6x10 enclosed trailer to something in the 7x14 or 7x16 range with dual-axles. Mostly to eliminate the hassle factor, gain some height and not feel like I'm playing Tetris every time I pack up.
My question is: Do any of you find that the gross weight of the trailer has much bearing on how much you tear up fields, how much you get stuck, or just generally how much nicer/worse it is? I realize that the law of physics tells me that I'm more likely to get stuck, etc but I'm wondering if anyone has made the switch and it was night and day.
With the little trailer I can pretty much go anywhere. Decoys aren't heavy and if the field is sloppy we generally aren't hunting it anyway. Even if a wheel gets stuck in a pivot track I can just pull it out. Maybe not with the larger trailer but I'm assuming that with the dual axle, that risk is lessened.
I just thought I would ask before I got into trouble. The trailer I'm looking at is around 2200lbs dry weight so I'm assuming its not a huge deal.
Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.
