I'm getting ready to move out of here, and figured I'd just buy a triler and hook it up to the diesel to bring everything out west.

Are all these things made the same. I had a Wells Cargo I used when I was racing and it seemed to be pretty good. Are names like Pace and Haulmark overpriced because of their names? What are some other good ones?


Thanks


John

H and H Trailers is big around here, I've had a Haulmark and they're about the same.

They are definitely not the same.
I cant recommend a specific brand-
but I would recommend trying to find trailers that guys are using everyday and see how they hold up.
You may notice that alot of companies in your area are using the same trailer, or maybe a couple seem to be more popular than others.

Check the sheetmetal screws and see if they are all there. Sometimes those things just back out of lesser quality trailers because there isnt much to attach too, or the workmanship is poor.
Check for water leakage.
Do the doors work well after a while?

Many trailers look great at first, but break down after use.

I looked for one for a few months before I got a company van. The below quote about sums it up.
