I don't have your model A-Frame, can you remove and put back the top rails easily?
It would be a Flagstaff just like yours with a rear bed. Yours looks exactly like the schematic in the Flagstaff brochure with the same removable rails ( I think) and comes with two drive on attachments for an ATV.

My ATV weighs about 400 lbs.

Dealer just told me that the sale price would be $12,395 + $600 for the anti-sway stabilizer attached to keep it level and not pull down the back end of the truck.

The rails come off the TH easily. It uses a 2-5/16 ball. The gear deck holds 600 lbs. Tongue weight is 335 lbs unloaded.

Ya that's the one I want. Unless something else comes up. I keep learning more and more. If I was in a hurry I would have bought the wrong one. This one looks exactly what I would like to have.

Thanks handbuilder.

Youre welcome! I love my A-Frame Toyhauler (pictured above with one rail off)...good luck in your purchase! I got mine for 12500 which included the screenroom and upgraded CO2 detector, upgraded furnace, 14" tire and an electric jack. (I had them remove electric jack & place manual jack for now)

At the time, I wasnt impressed with the electric jack it came with. Since I would be using this trailer alot on my own, I wanted to simplify any poss problems without my spouse with me. The electric jack just wasnt a 'must have' item for me & if I decide to ever use one in the future, it would be one of better quality than what was on it. For now, I dont mind the manual jack.

I think it would be much noisier running in the truck bed. All that metal would make a good sound box.

How much weight on the tongue with a 400 lb. ATV loaded on the deck?? What will be necessary additions to pull level with my 4-door 2011 4X4 V6 automatic Tacoma??
