Thumbs up

V.O. I would deffinatly talk to Jay at South Florida Trailers. I researched buying my aluminum trailer and found Jay to be a customer oriented person to deal with who knows his product as well as his competitions.I like the torsionbar setup much more than the old coventioal spring style.Both in ride and reliability.My trailer is very well built with all stainless hardware and the layout is perfect. I had Jay biuld mine to accept a step and a none step V bottom he made the bunks reversable.He completed the job in one week for me with all my modifications including all L.E.D. lighting, turn signals on the fenders, extra bunks ect. I wanted a spare hub assembly, Jay sent it to me within 2 days. He payed shipping. Sorry to ramble, I cant say enough as to how well I've been treated in dealing with S.F.T. Good Luck in Your Search. Hope this info has been helpfull. Mark B. P.s. I'll include Photo I have many more if you like.
