    Maybe its time to start boycotting the larger trailer manufacturers. Too many stories about bad QC and then not standing by their warranty. You spend $10k-$20k and should expect at least decent quality build for those prices. Not something that needs repairs every 6 months or so.

    After my bad experience with another big trailer manufacturer I decided this time to find a smaller less known company and voice my concern for quality. Hoping for a good experience this time.

    So add up the weights of what you were hauling & prove you didn't have it overloaded.! Then go after them! I wouldn't stand for that crap.

    This is sad to hear because their sister company Load trail stood behind me. I had a 2014 that needed some minor welds repaired in 2015 & 2016 & they fixed it no questions asked. Nothing structural though..

    This must be in every small/medium duty trailer manufacturer handbook. "You must have overloaded it".. What a cop out. They all claim this same crap..

    No, they won't load for me either.
    I got the "You must have overloaded it" BS with my first texas pride car trailer and they couldn't tell me how heavy "overloaded" is.

    It comes down to cost. More or less you get what you pay for. Something high end like Alum-Line is way more than most want to spend.
