Default Trailer Vendors

Looking for a triple axle aluminum I-Beam and have narrowed down into the following vendors;

TechSun
Nextrail
Sportline (Loadmaster)
Hi-Tech

Can anyone provide feedback/experiences? Issue is that I am trying spend as little as possible because I want to upgrade to a larger boat in the next year or two however, do not want the future owner to have a crap trailer.

In case your wondering, I want a triple axle as Nordics come with triple and I want to maintain the look - even though a 7500 lb tandem would work fine. Thanks for feeback....

My friend has one of these trailers. They are local to you too.

Were you unhappy with the trailer that came from Nordic?

Not at all....it is really a nice looking trailer. The issue is that the previous owner dipped it in salt water a few times and it is deteriorating badly. I have had several folks tell me it is unsafe and in VA you need an inspection sticker on trailers that have brakes and I am having trouble finding someone to pass it

That really stinks. Sick Nordic's trailer is holding up pretty well going in and out of the salt water up here. It looks like a pretty beaffy trailer.... And towed the boat well.

Look below the paint, after my experience with Nordic trailer I wouldn't trust it as far as I could throw it!! Nice trailer for fresh water however. That's my old boat that he's talking about...Shawn, have you looked at So. Florida Trailers?

Steve - great to hear from you! Boat is doing great however, trailer is toast. Yes, I did actually look at them...someone on the board pointed me there. I never got to pricing as I tried to stick with larger manufacturers as it seems they can be more competitive with pricing. What do you know of them?

I bought a Hi-Tech trailer this year for my boat and Love it!!! I would highly recommend these people for a trailer. They were great to deal with.
