Gatormade Enclosed trailers on Ebay

Are these trailers any good?? $4200 for a 8.5x20 is pretty good but am I better off spending the money on a Haulmark or a better brand???

I would be leary of that cheap of trailer for that big of a trailer. I had an ebay trailer and it was OK at best but I made out like a bandit with insurance when they totalled it this year. But I think 4200 for that big of a rig is just too low to get a good quality rig. Maybe if you dont overload it and really baby it you might be fine but that price tag would have me guessing about the quality.

I think a better investment would be a pace summit or wells cargo. Even the lower model hallmark's are not made that well. If it starts falling apart you gonna hate yourself everyday. If the company will stand by there 5 year warranty you might take a chance for an attractive price. Then again it has no triple tounge, no side door, and no kick plate. That already sounds like a headache to me.

Wow

Just think of the rolling billboard that truck could be. I would put a full wrap on that bad boy if I bought it.
