    I am new to trailers and do not know much about them.

    does anybody have any input on the company?

    I have bought 4 or 5 trailers over the years from them.... utility or car type....
    you have to be VERY specific in specing if you are going to have them build you one.... and the quality varies from weldor to weldor.... you used to be able to even buy one with used tire takeoffs to get it cheaply,,,
    I think all in all you can get a good value from them if youre careful

    Yeah well I went to buy a trailer from one of their dealers, and I found that they use angle iron not box tube or channel for the frame, and their prices are not that great either, and they charge you extra for stuff they are required to have by law after a certain weight rating.
    I still didn't buy but so far I found the best price vs quality has been the PJ trailers.
    Still looking for better deals though.

    youre right about them using angle instead of tube...
    but Im talking 1200 dollar car 7k car trailers... ok for a light heep... not for k5s.... and they didnt hold what they were specd at... youre also right about everything being an option,,,, its been several years since I bought one of their specials,,, and I knew them "when" they started out...
