Best Way to Buy Landscape Trailer

I'm looking to finally buy a NEW landscape trailer. I've had used ones since we started our business but am now expanding and have decided to buy at least one new 16-20' landscape trailer (open). I want a box on the front for supplies, along with racks. My question is, should I buy a base unit and then have a local trailer shop weld all the pieces on, or find someone who sells a ready made unit? I'm having trouble finding dealers who sell anything but basic trailers in Virginia.

Buy the trailer you want and then have fab/welder put what YOU want on.

Avoid superior trailer sales over priced. Bad customer services the messed up my title of origin last October and still have not made it right. I bought a new trailer from Commonwealth trailer in sandstone they order the trailer I wanted. Also its cheaper to have a fan shop put on what you want where you want it. From a dealer it where the manufacture puts it.
