    Default opinion of Carry-On trailers

    I've been looking for a used utility trailer but have not had any luck. I've started looking at new trailers. A local place has Carry-On trailers and I was quoted ~$1200 for this trailer.

    Any opinions of Carry-on or the price?

    Local Home Depot, Gander Mountain, and TSC stores have similar trailers. Don't know their prices but have seen the trailers.

    I looked at a Carry-on trailer about a month ago.Not to buy,i was just wasting time waiting for the woman who was at the mall.By habit whenever i look at something that is basically a welded assembly,i always check out the welds,mostly because thats what i do for a living.
    Anyway,the first trailer i looked at looked good,even the welds.But the second and third,the welds were terrible.Lots of porosity.Real bad.Not to say they are all like this,but it is a good place to start looking at the quality
    of a trailer.Maybe it was a new guy with his first day on the job.
    But nobody should have to pay for inferior craftsmanship.The design looked good and seemed like a good compromise between weight and strength
    for the trailers intended use.But the welding quality didnt impress me.
    Of course,this could be a isolated case.Pricewise $1200 doesnt seem too bad for that unit.
    Three years ago i was looking for a used 16' tandem trailer to haul my tractor on,could'nt find one anywhere.So i bought new.Would'nt you know it 2 days later i found 3 used ones for sale.Maybe you could wait just a little longer and get a good deal on a used one unless you are in a hurry.

    thanks for the comments. I didn't know these were the same ones offered by TSC & Home Depot.

    Who makes the best trailers? Is there a "big three" of trailers?

    I need to trust the brand because I couldn't tell a good weld from a bad one!

    hey i dont know if they have any big pawn shops in your area but tonight i went by one that had about 15 used utility trailers, also look on craigs list there is always some on there in my area. that seems like a big chunk of change for not much trailer to me. i helped my frinds wife pick up his christmas trailer last year and he got a 10 foot utility trailer with full size tires and fold down ramp brand new for 800.00. awsome trailer he overloads it every chance he gets i swear. look at some places besides box stores of any kind, IMO they are at least double what you can buy one for at a trailer place. it may be different where you live but around here the only people that buy trailers from box stores are the ones that need financing.
    just what ive seen who knows what you see
    equipment = L45 tlb, zd326p
    attachements = disk, pallet forks, box blade, 4n1, thumb, ld material bucket
    past equipment = b???? old slow no p/s, bx23 tlb, b3030 tlb, mf 175, jd301a

    its me again,lol
    i went to 3 trailer places today because im looking into upgrading mine so while i was there i asked about the price on the same utility trailer for you.
    down here a 5x10 single axel with mesh gate is anywhere from 650-850.
    the 20' goose im looking at is about 3400.00

    good luck man

    I've been checking the pennysaver and craigslist and think I'll just keep doing that. I know that I'll come across a deal the week after I buy a new one.

    If these were good trailers and the price wasn't off by a lot, I'd get the new one. But it looks like these are nothing special and neither is the price.

    thanks for the info.
