PJ trailers are great, but honestly no difference in quality with the larger trailers. I've seen both being used commercially, and they both are great trailers. It's like trying to compare Ford and Lincoln, same exact thing, one might just have more bells and whistles haha

Those bells and whistles are nice. Real nice. A lot of standard upgrades. My 6.5x12 was bought from a trailer dealer. I haven't just seen both used commercially, I have owned and used both commercially. Big upgrade. But to each his own. One just needs his equipment to do what he expects.

Just my opinion. I'd take a PJ over a Carry-On, but I'm happy with my trailer, especially just starting out, I didn't even have a trailer last year! Ha. The reason I said I have seen is because my dad has uses a Carry-On dump down in AZ and its a very well built trailer. Beat the hell out of it with skidsteers and it just keeps trucking. He left a early 90s PJ up here but it's just collecting rust. If it had some TLC it'd be a great trailer, but no title, so I bought my own trailer. My next open will definitely be a PJ.

Rootytalbot, good purchase! You'll be glad you paid the extra.
Thanks brother. I'm proud of it.
