You may not need it today, you may not want it today, but an 18' 5 ton trailer will almost certainly do whatever you want whenever you want it. After the fire that took my flatbed (along with a couple hundred thousand dollars of other stuff) I replaced with a 16' 3 ton. The trailer is too darn small for what I need now. I will sell it this fall and go larger. I only use my trailer a couple times a year, but when I need it, I need it. One of my tractors is overweight for my trailer, and while I might get by with a short haul, the dealer is 90 miles away and the DOT would be on me like white on rice if they saw me hauling that one. Buy for the future. That particular future may never come, but you never want to be accused of having small equipment.
