5 x 8 Carry-on frame only trailer at NT

Postby EOCharley » Fri Jul 19, 2019 10:14 am

Yep, saw them myself at the Lafayette, La location. Frame only, no sides, no floor, didn't see a price so i went inside and was told these are special built Carry-On trailers, for NT only at the time. $549 for anyone interested. The sales person could not give me an SKU at the time.

I might be confused, but, Carry-On's 5x8 flatbed, sold locally by Tractor Supply and Northern Tool's 5x8 (branded as Ironton) are different animals. Times change and so do trailer offerings. If Carry-On are now carried by NT I stand corrected.

Before I bought my Northern Tool trailer for build #2 I asked about Carry-On's 5x8 flatbed at Tractor Supply. The model number is just 5x8 NF (no floor). The quote was $900 shipped to the Michigan store. Yes, they wanted more for the special order trailer than the one in the yard with sides and expanded metal floor. Eventually I selected the Northern tool 5x8. $300 cheaper and definitely not the same trailer as Carry-On's. But, it's perfectly adequate for a teardrop build if you can accept that the axle will not accept brake brackets without major modifications (ordering a new axle was the least expensive upgrade which brings it closer to the price range of the Carry-On). I decided brakes were an unnecessary luxury for that build.

And Carry-On's 5x8 (though the NF model is special order without sides and floor and different han this one, but, the same basic trailer.

They list quite a few trailers since last I looked a year or so ago including some with 13 and 15 inch wheels. The 6-4 X 12-0 with 15" tires might be a good basis for a home built canned ham.
