    A good sign that you are still considering a twenty year timeline! Never get old.

    Not all. The Interstate we're looking at from Trailers Plus is a tank and has screwed panels. I-Beams for the main frame rails over the axles, steel framed doors with welded on hinges that you can swing on, etc. I've not seen a better built trailer yet, and we've looked at a lot of brands. But most of the higher end trailers in most brands are screwless. And I would live with that if it came to it. Not putting it down. We just feel better about having all the screws.

    Can't argue with that. Thats a good commercial grade trailer that will still have value after 20 years. I just sent a 15 year old Featherlite to auction that the foreman kept so much crap inside overloaded to the point the suspension was completely bottomed out eventually crushing the frame. Not worth rebuilding the frame, sent to equipment auction where someone paid 6k. I bought it new on sale for somewhere around 9k.

    I looked at the UXT you mentioned, but they are .030 thickness. Which seems to be what most of the higher end trailers use. Lower end mostly use the .024 stuff.

    Does not surprise me. Featherlite has really made a name for themselves. And a well deserved one, at that.

    The Interstate is not sold around here for some reason and looks similar to the UXT. And they seem priced very well after looking at the dealers in the south. You cant go wrong with that especially if you have a diesel pulling it.
