Trailer manufacturers...any of these to avoid?
 
Finally looking to upgrade to a comp trailer. I'm looking at prices from the following companies, all of which are roughly the same price:

Colony cargo
Continental cargo
Diamond Cargo
Freedom Trailers

Anyone have experience with any of these brands, good or bad?

Thanks for any help!

I purchased a 8.5x18 tandem from the company with the 'birdy' logo. Worst mistake I have ever made.

I just finished reading a thread here about that same company and a mildew problem on the sealant. I'll definitely be staying away from that one.

We've had a Wells Cargo since the first of the year and it has been great so far. A 7x14 v front. When doing my reseearch I had pretty much decided on Wells Cargo, Haulmark, or Featherlight and settled on Wells Cargo since we have a local dealer. Cargo Mate and the other brands made by the same company had more unfavorable reviews.

I have a Freedom trailer. It is a cheap trailer which is built pretty cheap. If you go in to it knowing that you will be fine. Remember you get what you pay for.

That said I have cooked out of mine for the last two seasons and only problems I have come across are improperly aligned door jams, bad tires from manufacturer, and the floor on the deck needs to be re-glued.

Good to know Rich, thanks. I have full expectations of getting what I pay for. I'd love to get an Extreme Trailer, but that quality just isn't in the budget.

Make sure the tires it needs are not some strange size that nobody but the retailer can get
