    Yeah I’ve heard the same on there car trailers as well. I haven’t seen anything as of yet on the rgn. But I’m still researching that. Thank you for your first hand experience. That’s exactly what I was looking for here, some one with hands on experience with the brand I’m looking into. I appreciate it very much.

    In my opinion your cheaper trailers, i.e. rampant, Kaufman, witzco are throw away trailers. I doubt you'll see a significant amount of cracking, typically the folks that own them are your local workers, and they beat the ever living #### out of them and they keep going. But wouldn't put 110k on a 55 ton Kaufman? Probably not.

    My choices are Dorsey, Rogers, roadrunner, Fontaine.

    Trailking is no longer on my list, some love them, I won't own another.

    I have a buddy that bought a Kaufman 55 ton. He's had it for almost a year and has nothing bad to say about it. Even their car haulers have actually gotten better over the years, but no, they can't measure up to the big names.
     
    RollinThunderVet Thanks this.

    They have some ugly welds, resale value is ####, no one wants them when they're worn out.
