What is a high fender?

A low floor right?

Gold Rush, Featherlite have high fender low floor.

Low floor, low center gravity



I'm showing you the low hitch here.

So the real story is the lower floor?
Which would require taller inner and outer fenders of course..
Why don't the "pros" want you to know about needing taller fenders if you drop the floor?
Does a dropped floor require a dropped axle(s) or ?

It's trailer performance, the only reason you haven't heard this before, is probably mostly because there's only a couple builders w / low center. If you built trailers with a high center, would you wanna discuss a low center?

I'm sure many will find it interesting.

Have you ever towed a Gold Rush or Featherlite trailer, w/ low center?

Lower floors means lower ground clearance which equals more bottoming out on uneven terrain, no thanks got enough of that already.
Also higher fenders mean less space to open doors inside the trailer for those of you who do it that way. I used to do my monza that way but monte I have to take the door off.

Yes as to towing Goldrush. Its also a lot better built.Has no frame rails to speak of. The floor is a extrusion,the walls are ties in with weld and aluminum side panel the covers floor and wall base plate. .Making it one big engineered beam basically. Heck of lot lighter. Now I am talking all aluminum trailer.Their is reason they are so highly rated and rarely do you find use for sale unless someone is reiring from sport.

Not me, BUT the bottom choice describes you exactly you dumba$$

"Friend: Bro I'm sick of all these people just repeating shyt...."
"Me: It's hard to move forward with all these NPCs"

It's been years since you knocked over that foam block dude.....get over it and move forward....do you really want to continue to live your sad little life in the past for another 5-10 years??
