    Lol, my trailers carry furniture. All hand loaded debris. Far from abusing.

    He’ll tildord. I hope my writing didn’t insinuate you abuse at all. If it did it was not my intention. Wanted to list how mines used as a gauge for you is all.
    Kemco. My trailer in a diamond c was almost 3 k more. I think I’d be too worried to use it, it was so oretty

    I found a dealer in Kentucky with a new diamond c 7 x 16 tandem with cage for $5k plus tax. The big Tex I got same size with cage was right at $5k with tax. I only had to drive about 45 min away to pick up the Big Tex.

    The Diamond C I was about to buy was from Kentucky lake trailer sales in Calvert city KY. Same size everything. I should've gone with it. Again, many hours away from me and I kept thinking "but everyone says big Tex is the best". And I'm thinking im about to drop $5k I want the best... I didn't get it.

    My single axle trailer which looks old and rough, iveI'had it 12 years is a Diamond C. I use it as a backup. It's a tube top rail and built like a beast. I completely agree, if they are still built like that diamond c is the winner.

    Oh man. Same price for the diamond c equivalent is a dream come true. Chalk it up to lesson learned i guess right? Please don’t get me wrong, I’d buy my trailer again in a second especially for the price. But a diamond c it is not. Nor (around here) was it priced like one. My scissor lift, solar charge kit, literally everything has been flawless. But myself and I doubt any other person would ever compliment the big Tex paint jobs. I actually rattle can over the rust spots as they arrive. Might as well try to keep her looking sharp as I can. Zerk the hinges, wd40 the hinges that don’t have zerks. That’s about all it takes on mine.
