We have had Titans. Gooseneck and flatbeds. They are good. We had a problem with paint on our gooseneck and Titan was good to work with. When I called in I got right to the owner. That's been awhile ago, so things may have changed, but it was good then and so were the trailers. I've seen photos of Denny's and they were really slick and I bet tough.
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.

We've had good luck with Titans. I have two 16' x 6'8" bumper pull stock trailers, and a 24' x 6'8" gooseneck stock trailer. All are real good outfits. We also have a 30' triple axle flatbed Titan trailer that works very well.

If you do buy a trailer from Denny I will have to find out when he's coming through Plentywood so I can buy him lunch.

I like my Titan. It is an 2002, 6'8" X 24' gooseneck stock with smooth sides. I haven't pulled any others, but this one pulls easy, and is stout. Easy on tires.

If you buy a Titan, get their upper end models. They are pretty good. Their cheap line rattles and the sides sway when you go through the pasture.
I have an old Trailmen. Pulls easy and has stood the test of time, but Titan bought them out in early 2000s.
I think Travalong makes a good trailer but I have never owned one.

We knew someone who had Travelong and they had a lot of problems with the gate latches. They may have fixed that by now, but sure something to check on.
The best, toughest trailer we have ever owne was a Swan. They stopped making them a long time ago, but what a trailer. Heavy though, because they were so tough.
