Default Georgia Trailers

Is anyone using one of the built in Georgia enclosed trailers ? If so then pros/cons, happy/unhappy, how long have you had it, how many miles ?
I realize you get what you pay for but there is a substantial price difference between those and me buying one locally here in New England.

The ones i have seen were cheaply built,i had a customer buy 2 of them and take them to Canada,2 different times.
Cheap price,cheap trailer.
They really went cheap on how namy screws held the wall skins on,the roof was supposed to be one piece,and they were 2 pieces,having a seam in the roof is not a good idea.

There is a big trailer dealer close to me and I've looked at them some and talked to the sales guys. Carlisle Events is one of the bigger venues for classic cars and this place gets a fair amount of business from guys buying cars in Carlisle .I think the cheaper trailers are probably fine for people that rarely use them and never load them to capacity. I am rather amazed by just how little you can spend . There can't be much to them. I'd never buy a cheap trailer to pull behind a MH . I'm not crazy about pulling any trailer but if I was going to do it I would probably buy a feather light maybe try to find a used one

I too am looking at buying a trailer. Cost is always a factor but I really measure things by value (to me) more than just a dollar amount. The base trailer I am looking at (22x8.5) isn't terribly expensive. Around 5100.00. Of course when I add the options I think it needs to do what I want it to do and be strong and stable, such as 12" spaced floor joists, welded in E-track on the floor and walls, 3/4 plywood on floor and walls, 3/8" plywood on the ceiling, a third 7000lb axle, heavier gauge aluminum, and the list goes on and on. By the time all of the extras get put on I wouldn't call it cheap anymore. If they do a decent job putting all of the parts together then I believe I will have the trailer I want. If they don't execute well, then I guess I will have to investigate other options.....

If you think about what many people haul in them and what could happen if a fellow would have a catastrophic failure it might make spending more easier. In addition the better made trailers just look better which is of itself of some value

I have three of them. Very cheap. We use in our demo business and the guys destroy them no matter if cheap or expensive so i went cheap. Also have a wells cargo and a lark, Both are built well.

Back before I retired in 2011 I was faced with the trailer decision to move the family before I could follow them. The Georgia trailers were very tempting, but for the same money I bought a '96 26ft all aluminum Featherlite off C'list. An additional benefit to being extremely well built is that the lighter aluminum frame gives you more cargo capacity. I hauled it many times at max axle capacity (9600 lbs) with zero problems running 15" Marathons. I also determined the easy way to know when max loaded without scales: when the tires are set to max pressure and the center of the axles are at 13" from the ground she is at 9500bs +/- verified later on the scales. I've used it to haul cars and other stuff since, but I don't pull it behind the bird. It exceeds Tennessee max length restrictions (65 ft total I think), I couldn't get it out of my drive hooked up if I tried, and then there is the "what to do with it at the campground" issue.

I bought one from them, cheap cheap, on the way home rivets/screws were falling out, pure junk in my opinion.

Haulmark, Cargo Mate or much more expensive Featherlite are the trailers to buy.
