Anybody pulling one?

Just seeing a few up this way, look pretty good but the proof is in the pulling. :D

There are a few around here too, but not very many. Mostly Featherlite and Wilson for ranch/livestock trailers. So what does that tell you? :D
I know years back Duralite was cheaper but didn't hold up. Not sure how they are now though.
There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Have only seen 1 Duralite and the guy said it was good thus far but only had a few trips with it. We bought a Hot Shot by Trails West. Corrugated steel, light like aluminum, pulls really nice. Had it 4 years, lots of miles through the mountains between AB & BC, really happy with it. Nice latches, paint holding up well, no wiring issues, etc.

There's 2 dates in time they'll carve on your stone, and everyone knows what they mean.
But what's more important is the time that is known, as that little dash there in between.
