    I need a new one, local dealers sell top hat and CAM Superline. Any opinions?

    I bought a Cam Superline dump bed insert for a truck in Buffalo this spring and it seems to be quality except 2 things...the ram started leaking a week later (they sent me a new one) but them or the dealer never offered to pay for someone to install it and the stake pockets on the side rails weren't even with each other from side to side which was a real pain when we made our new leaf box. Other than that I think they're built a bit heavier duty than a lot of others out there. Where is this dealer?

    Check out Appalachian over in Salem Ohio. We bought a 16k deckover trailer 5 years ago and it has been the best trailer I've ever had

    I got 13 years out of my pequea trailer. Replaced it with a Kaufman which has been trouble free so far,no issues with tires,electrical or paint finish.And its tough to beat the price if that's an issue.Whatever you decide,I would upgrade the tires,those cheap tires that come stock on many trailers are junk.

    I have a Pequea deckover as well. I don't even remember when we bought it, but it's well over 10 years old and going strong. Haven't even replaced a deckboard yet.

    Moritz International. If you don't have a dealer close it's worth the drive.

    Peaqua would be second for me.

    No experience with Cam stuff, but everyone that has them seems to brag them up, they just seem pricy.

    Thanks for all the advice guys, after having several dealers who wouldn't return my call, I bought a CAM yesterday.

    Pricing didn't seem out of line for what I got vs quotes from other manufacturers

    I bought a brand new Kauffman. 22' long with a 8' platform and 14' of tilt deck. Seems to be holding up great so far and I optioned it up with nice Firestone tires and some other stuff like dual jacks. I think it was around $6k delivered factory direct.

    I just picked up a new Griffin trailer. Was a few bucks more than the same size from PJ and Big Tex, but it weighs 2000 lbs more. I am wondering where the other guys cut corners to lose 2000 lbs. Plus they painted it red for me instead of black.

    Well over what that 2500 will ever be able to tow. :laughing:

    I like the CAM trailers, priced well. Local dealer used to carry CAM and they were nice trailers.
