Seeing as you're the most knowledgeable group of guys on the planet, I thought I'd pose this question to you.
I'm looking for a trailer that is at least 3000# that has high clearance and is galvanized. Brakes would be great, but no necessary.
What do you recommend?
Thanks in advance.

Please define "high clearance". The axle is usually the limiting thing in trailer ground clearance- a trailer with spindles dropped below the axle would have the most clearance. How much clearance do you need?

3000# trailer will have brakes....unless special ordered.

Clearance . . . right now I have about 9 inches, and it's not enough. 12 inches would be nice. More would be best.
I'm not sure what the technical term for the cross-section is on the trailer, but mine looks like a cradle and sits fairly low.

If you can find a helpful EZ Loader dealer, I could see you configuring an "adjustable" model, with a torsion-axle suspension. A torsion axle suspension can have the "axle" crossmember set higher than a leaf-spring axle. Additionally, you can get "risers", that fit between the axle mounts and the frame, raising the frame.
On a leaf-spring model, look and see if the axle can be set under the leaf springs, rather than above (sitting within) the spring.
