I know it's not on your list but I just bought a 6x12 PJ open landscape trailer and it is the best built nicest trailer I've ever owned. It's got features that other comparible trailers don't have and it's priced right. Built rugged. Channel iron frame instead of angle iron. Radial tires. Enclosed lights,spring assist gate and the way the gate closes is really neat. Comes with a bulldog flip up jack instead of that permanent jack that hits the tailgate of my truck.

^ I second that. We bought a PJ 6.5x12 new in 2003 and the wheels just keep on turning, this thing is a workhorse. Hopefully there is a PJ dealer near you.

Out of the three brands above I would get the sure trac. I almost bought one until I found a company called NNT. Trailer is built really nice. The sure tracs are nice though

I'm kinda limited here, but I've always heard good things about H&H trailers also. Been looking at buying one the last couple years, just have spent my money on other more important things. Most of their floors are O channel steel and everything else is built heavy just like the floor.
