Default Competition trailer, brand recommendations

I am getting serious about buying a trailer and have been looking into a couple brands. Leaning towards all aluminum cargo. A couple of the brands Im looking at I know their reputation. Has anybody had any good/bad or information about Stealth out of Indiana?
I'm also talking with James at Extreme but that isnt a aluminum.

TIA,

Ken

Another vote for Extreme. I have also been to the factory, great place. James does a great job, from design to production to follow up. Its been great working with him.

Smoke, are you the one that had all the trouble with mold and caulking? I couldn't remember the brand.

Yes, and that wasn't the only problems I had with it.....

sealant
axle
frame welding
tires wearing uneven... back to axle problem
siding not sealed


and to make a long story short, I don't have it any more.... I totaled it and my truck during a winter storm almost 2 yrs ago.... ice, bridges, truck and trailers don't play together too well....

at least I don't have my nightmare any longer.
