    I see a lot of guys at the Minneapolis Auto Auction using their 3 car wedge trailers and every guy I've talked to about them says "good trailer for the price". So I take that to mean it's not the best available but it's good enough.

    I work with a guy that has a 18ft deckover 15000 with the pop up dove tail. Its an alright trailer for the money. I personally stick with cronkhite, belshe, brooksbrothers, the bigger name in trailers because you get what you pay for. If you wouldn't use it everyday then its probably a good deal.

    I looked into buying from them, seemed like good trailer. Accually they told me they are on of the biggest manufactuing co of trailers. I think most are made about the same, good luck with it

    I had a 14K Kaufman deckover tilt....pretty heavy duty but didn't haul that well....tracking was mediocre....other trailers I have owned did much better over the road.

    Just purchased a new Cam Superliner 16K deckover semi-tilt 24' long....really nice trailer....fit finish light etc. top shelf....was pricey but quality seems well worth it.

    Check out Cam....will be worth your time.
