hitch pull trailer for ~7000#

Im looking around for prices and different designs of trailers to tow my suburban with dually axles. im not sure what exactly i need to look for in a builder so some input on different manufacturers to look up would be nice.

I know it needs a deck about 96" wide because my track width is 91" with just 12.5" wide tires and at least 18' long. I'd like it to have 2 axles and be rated to carry about 7000 pounds, and have e brakes. I've seen a few like this in hitch pull versions rather than gooseneck and i want to try and one for a hitch, or find a builder that will make it.

Are there regulations limiting trailer width for privet vs commercial vehicles or could I go with a whole 100" wide deck?

The tow vehicle is a '94 Chevy Van 3/4 ton with 120" wheelbase but Im adding a 14b with 4.10s, 3500# rated helper springs, and a few other mods that'll bump the towing capacity well above 7000#. Some input for extra mod ideas for this tow vehicle would also be appreciated. Ill be looking to buy somewhere in the summer.

102 inches is your width limit. Go the full 102 with rub rails.

I would go with a low deck with drive over fenders.

Ask Eric "Bruiser" he had a nice on awhile back.

Yea I think I'll do 102 wide but I like the idea of a deck over just in case I have to drag something up the whole trailer.

Do you know of any good builders within 100 miles of houston area? I prefer to buy local.
