It should.  But my trailer isn't a deck over so i'm gonna have to widen it so my tires aren't hanging off the edge.

I assumed it was a deck over pintle hitch.

I don't care for them either. Unfortunately the 30k trailers I pull are all pintle though.

Yeah, that makes sense for that weight.  mine only has tandem 7k axles so its not rated for that weight.  But, for two rigs it works fine.

Does it have stake pockets and a rail down the side? I've seen some guys make extensions that just set down in the stake pockets. They were pretty nice and simple.

No, it doesn't have stake pockets sadly.  There are some half assed rails down the side that are small.  I'm gonna have to cut them off to widen the trailer.  Once i get the rear wheels put back together, that will be my next big project.  I also want to cut the diamond plate out from the center of the trailer so that i can use that space for storage for my propane tanks and spare tires for the trailer among other things.  The trailer also has slide in ramps that suck since they aren't wide enough for a 4 wheel drive to drive on plus they are heavy as hell.  so, i'll get rid of those and weld some rackets for my 7' aluminum ramps to be used then.  The aluminum ramps can handle 5k per axle so they'll have no issues with my rig going on them.
