These guys will build anything you can think of, and reasonable. Have had one for over 10 years that was 102" between the edges and the fenders were above the deck.

What are your hitch limits? My W24 came with 5000/500 class III. I have upgraded to a class IV with 7000/700 limits. Most any pickup I can think of will be well over 3000 lbs. and figure another 2000 + lbs. min for an open deck steel trailer and you're right at or over the limits for a class III. That doesn't allow anything extra for the weight of your bike. I thought about towing my 900 lb. bike in the back of my Chevy 1/2 ton short bed std. cab using a lift but even that setup would have been over the class III limit for total weight.

you know i swear these guys, kearney and big tex all use the same blueprint
big tex wont negotiate price
but the other guys are very eager to wiggle around, i think we are lucky in east texas....must be a dozen trailer builders around here building great products

for reference my truck is 5700 lbs with half a bag of gas
i had a new 2 5/16 bull dog tongue and extra bracing added so i would be in limits.....as it is now i am 200 under what they rated it at. so new axles might be soon
