Never heard of the other one. The OSO boat rides on a South Florida and has been all around the country this year. This is third South Florida, never a problem with any of them. Stay with name brand for re-sale. Myco aluminum are nice also.

A friend bought one for his 38 fountain SC. I THINK he called "south florida" , When the trailer came in it was a completly different name on it ? It is a pretty good trailer though . All aluminum with disc brakes . I think there was also something missing . I can't remember what . Ask quesions when ordering it .Like does it have tires , lights ,wires, brakes on how many axles, stainless hardware , etc. !

The trailer was cheap and pulls great . I pulled it at 90mph passing cars on a little 2 lane road ! ( I was late for dinner) ! and it handled great .

Again ,I could be wrong on the name . but I think it was South florida he called . If I'm wrong ,I'm sorry ! Don't hate me !

Thumbs up

Todd, I would highly recommend going with South Florida Trailers, Jay is a stand up guy, and true to his word. I had him build mine to my specs, i.e. extra lights (led), turn signals on the fenders, extra bunks. He turned it around in a week so I could tow it home from my vacation. By far one of the nicest towing and loading trailers Ive ever had or pulled. He uses all stainless hardware and the torsion suspension is great. Spend the money for the polished aluminum wheels ...well worth it! Good luck, I have many pics if you would like. Mark B.
