    I am looking at American Hauler enclosed trailers at a local dealer and am wondering how the quality is. Anyone have one?

    I purchased one myself three years ago. 7 by 18. Dual axle the whole nine yards. American Hauler is the sister company of US Cargo. These trailers usually come with many standard features that are options on others. Mine came with brakes on all four wheels, an adjustable coupler, LED lighting, Beaver Tail on rear door, 1 inch thick plank flooring. Also came with floor beams placed every 12 inches as compared with the standard 24 inch spacing. These trailers are heavier, but hold up really well for many, MANY years. I will never buy anything else. I've owned several others, and am glad I've made the switch. Well worth the extra coin. Good luck and don't be afraid to ask further questions.:usflag::usflag:

    go with the dual axle trailer. Much easier to tow and easier on the truck. Also, trailer will be less likely to sink in soft ground. Two more tires to distribuite the weight. Also, get a trailer for where you see yourself in five years. If you grow, a small trailer will need to grow as well. These things don't have a high resale value. Keep the questions coming:usflag:
