While there are exceptions, the majority of I-beam trailers I've seen are all the same. They look like they've been bolted together from a parts catalog. About the only thing you "probably" can't get from the catalog are the I-beams.

One thing I noticed on an All American trailer this past weekend was the orange-ish poly pads on the V bow stop; probably a real "nice to have" since they are non-marking I think. What I like about the McClain is they use square tube instead of channel for the vertical bunk supports. Plus they have a cool step guide for stepped hulls.

I was pulling on a Nextrail I-beam...It was like a lipstick on a pig or a pair of tennis shoes with a tux.
The reverse/backup lights on the trailer are friggin' cool...

Same with me - I got a great price on the trailer for my 33 Powerplay through Allison Bill, ended up having to detour from my CT to Miami trip through Panama City because the trailer wasn't delivered to Miami in time and I had to pick it up at Hi Tech. Hi Tech came through, and I couldn't be happier with the trailer. Is a Myco nicer? Absolutely, but for $4,500 (and I actually think I paid less), I have no complaints with the Hi Tech. The trailer has all stainless hardware, triple axle, disc brakes on all wheels, removeable spindles, spare tire, toolbox, LED taillights, etc. etc. I've used it a lot in all salt water and moved the boat between Florida, CT, and upstate NY, and never had any negative experiences or close calls because of its I beam construction or surge brakes. For those of you highly recommending the Myco, out of curiousity, what are your concerns with I beam trailers? I guess I kind of look at this as a Corvette ZO6 vs. Ferrari 360 kind of debate. Yes, the Ferrari is definately nice, but the Corvette gets the same exact job done...
