    my first thing I noticed is 24 OC floor not good IMO
    Outside screws need to match the paint
    Check the metal thickness of the frame

    I have one of their tandem open trailers that seems to be made well. I see a lot of Gator trailers on the road here but mainly open and gooseneck. I believe they are made in Somerset, KY.

    They do have a production facility in Somerset KY yes. I have had 2 of their trailers, still have the 1, both equipment trailers. They are well built. Decent price, but they just dont compare to the more "top of the line" trailers but thats to be expected with their prices the way they are. Their trailers serve a purpose. Think I got my current equip. trailer for 2250.00 for a 18' 10k trailer...good deal

    I have a 16ft tandem axle new last year. No real problems, solid trailer just not as nice as some top line trailers, but was cheaper.
