If you have the budget for an aluminum trailer then Itech, if not then Vintage which is currently the best built steel trailer.

I would say it depends on your budget and desires. I'm looking for a class c and eventually aluminum trailer to tow for weight purposes. If I needed more amenities and didn't care about the weight, I would go with vintage. If all you need is a decent box for the car, a gold rush sportsman would be at the top of my list if the budget allows. Sure they're about the same price as a really optioned out vintage for basically a bare bones trailer, but my family has one that is 40 years old and is still going good. Never an issue, just maintenance, brakes, wheel bearings and tires in my lifetime. Towing with a truck, I wanted a shower and all in case I stayed somewhere over night. I got a great deal on a used millennium trailer, and it's good for what it is.

Just sold a 30' Vintage that was a 2009. Longest we have ever kept a trailer and it was still in fantastic shape. Also have a newer Bravo 26' that is just as quality built as the Vintage trailer. I would buy either brand again.

Last two BRAVO I looked at were very nice

Whatever you are looking at, look under all the finished shiny stuff.

Look at the frame welding, etc.

You might be surprised at what you find. Hoping most are good. I know for a fact, some are not.

This ^^^^ I had one of the brands mentioned above and it was flat out junk. Maybe mine was an exception but that was my experience. I had priced out a few other trailers but once I looked at the frame on a few Perfomax trailers, I got a quote and thought the extra cost was well worth it. Bought my 32ft in 09 and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

I would not feel comfortable with an aluminum trailer. Seen way too many cracked welds and how much weight does it save anyway? The advantage of aluminum is lighter weight and less corrosion.

Not talking about the money if it is lighter and lasts better than a steel trailer then probably worth the money. I just am not convinced the aluminum is as durable as a steel chassis.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

I've seen a lot more broke down steel trailers than aluminum. True, there are a lot more out there. Gold Rush, Featherlite, and T&E have quality welds and welders. The others are a crap shoot.
