48 ft spread Hopper Bottom

Looking at purchasing a 48' spread hopper bottom. Wondering what trailer would be best Wilson, Timpte or a Cornhusker. And if anyone might know the weight on any of these trailers. I was looking at a used Wilson and he was saying it weighed around 10,300. Didn't know how accurate that was and if the Timpte might be around the same weight.

I had a 2010 48x80x96 cornhusker spread that was 9200 pounds. Wilson and timpte will be heavier.

I used to have a 48x 79” husker I think it weighed like 9100#. Great trailer!

I actually just spec’d out 48’ spread axles and Wilson and Timpte both were around 10,500 with duals, aluminum couplers and subframes. Well actually the Timpte was steel subframe because for some odd reason on their spread suspensions aluminum is heavier than their steel. These were 48x96x 78 tall trailers

Sounds like the Cornhuskers are the way to go, been talking to a few other guys and they were saying to go with a cornhusker also. What are the biggest doors you can get on a cornhusker?
