I have an Integrity steel trailer, I'm no expert but it is nice. They used to build the trailers for PowerQuest for awhile.

be sure to impress upon them that you are fussy and want a quality job when dealing with manning. the first one of mine was such a poorly built , cosmetically challenged pos that Saber had to step in to insist upon a new one be built ( thanks Doug ). it also took over two months longer than promised, right in the middle of summer. having said that the one that i have now in very happy with.

I had a McClain bolt together. It was decent. Nothing special, but it was built with good components, axles, brakes, lights, etc.

My good buddy had a McClain welded for his same model boat. It has not held up.

I've got an aluminum Manning on order right now for my Active Thunder. $5k cheaper than Myco.

I would highly recommend All American Trailer Manufacturers at 954-468-5544. Just purchased a new 50 Foot Aluminum "C" Channel and everything is top of the line, including Stainless Steel brakes with vented discs, Air Tight Hubs, etc. The channel is 10" x 1/2" and it has lots of cross braces that are custom fit and welded, BUT are then bolted to the C Channel. This prevents the weakening and/or cracking of the main channel, at the numerous welding points, found on other brands. Everyone has their own theory, but this made sense to keep the integrity of the main structure.

So far, it has been an excellent trailer during loading and towing. It stops on a dime with the Brake Rite II EOH system. Everything is extremely well built with several custom options. Most importantly, All American Trailers has provided excellent customer service before and after the sale.
