This doesn't help you with your question but...
I bought a new Northern flatbed semi trailer back in 2004. I googled them and from what I figure they are probably the same company, as I bought the trailer from a dealer in Marshfield WI which isn't far from Ringle so they must dabble in making different pieces of equipment. Although they probably don't make any more trailers or at least very few of them cause I sure don't see any of them for sale.
The trailer has treated me fairly well I guess. Paint job was cheap and I had to reinforce the headboard. Some wiring shorted out once and caught on fire at the plug in. Overall I would say it's a decent made trailer but not much you can screw up with a trailer.
Just thought I'd give you an opinion on the company from my experience.
