    I plan on ordering a new all aluminum 48' flatbed with owner operator specs. I'm looking for some advice from those of you who have experience who either of these brands which one is the better trailer.

    I have had two Reitnouer trailers
    A 49’ that was custom built and now a 53’

    I have personally had no issues with either of them but from research and what others have experienced I wouldn’t have any problem getting a MAC either.
    They both make a nice trailer
    Might come down to price. Availability. And what specs one might offer over the other that’ll make you decision??

    I did tons of research before buying this trailer. This is my first all aluminum trailer. So I was pretty timid about it. The only thing I wish I would have got that I will definitely have on my next trailer is the stairs. I've got the steps on this one. No comparison there at all. This trailer is 100% welded and it's pretty stout. A few of my buddy's have had macs before and one had a retenoir big Bubba. I was more impressed with the quality and workmanship of the Mac. However, neither are bad imo.

    My buddy is picking up his new one at the factory next week. His is an off brand though. I don't even remember the brand off hand. I would venture to say that any reputable/mainstream brand is a ways out.
