Never heard of them but just like 99% of the trailers out there go through and cut out of all the butt splices and scotch locks and do the connections right.

I have yet to see a "mass produced" trailer that isnt full of butt connectors and scotch locks.

We bought a trailer from them two years ago. The paint was cracking and falling off with in a week. Took the trailer back before it was ever used to have them repair the shitty paint. Picked the trailer up and the ramps were missing, ramps were in the ramp pockets when the trailer was dropped off. They argued with us and never did make it right. They will never see my business. It was also one of three brand new trailers purchased at once.

Does anyone have trailer building plans for a 5x10 utility trailer they'd share?

Wow.. That sucks. I did notice the paint chipping. It does suck. Thought it was just normal to chip off. Sucks.. Bare metal equals rust

It looked like the sprayed too much paint and then it started to crack. It was horrible. The whole trailer looked like that. It was just crappy to buy three brand new trailers from one place and then have them lose our ramps and not correct the issue. And the paint still isn't right.
