On that note, I would not buy a Haulin again. The paint on the frame was not good and started to have rust break through right away. I also had a huge problem with galvanic action between the aluminum siding and the frame. I would look seriously at the higher end name trailers.
One other note, no matter who and what you go with, make sure you do a few things.
- Get the RV latch on the side door.
- Go with the extended tongue.
- If you don't see the need for a 4' side door, go with a 3'. Interior wall space is important.
- I think it's worth it to get it prewired and insulated ceiling. I had determined where I wanted my work bench and they installed the plugs in custom locations where I wanted them.
I weighed the cost difference of wiring & insulation and decided it was worth the up front money.
Granted its a open trailer, but father inlaw has had a haulin trailer for the whole 6 years I have known him, has stored it in the weeds the vast majority of the time, and it still looks brand new.
