    Who makes a quality enclosed 6x12 trailer?

    Looking for a good quality 6x12 enclosed trailer that is well built. Currently looking at Car Mate but not sure what else is in the same class. I have looked at Haulmark Passport and Transport and there is not really much difference between the two in quality and construction. American Hauler looks a little better but the fit and finish just isnt there compared to the Car Mate. Are there any others to be looking at? The 6x12 Sportster is $3500 and the Custom Cargo is $3750 which has torsion axles. The trailer will be used for moving around the country. It is hard to beat the one piece aluminum roof and lifetime warranty on floor and roof.

    All aluminum is the way to go. I previously had a SnoPro all aluminum snowmobile trailer and it was very well made. They're manufactured in Maine.

    Welcome to SnoPro Trailers Used it for about 10 years. Sold it for what I had in it and purchased a Featherlite in 2009. Car Trailers - Race Car Trailers | Featherlite Trailers

    The Featherlite is also a very well made trailer as well. Invest in a Featherlite and it will last a lifetime. Here's mine which is 8' w x 16' l x 6'6" h.

    Wells Cargo makes them and actually the plant is close to me. Never asked about prices though.

    Haulmark and Pace were well made when I was shopping for ones a few years ago.

    Some manufactures offer a wide range of inexpensive to pricey trailers. Most dealers, however, generally stock the cheapest models so you're forced to special order a higher grade models and cross your fingers.

    I'd also recommend Featherlight aluminum trailers....expensive but you get what you pay for. You'll have to decide if your needs warrant that kind of investment.

    Thanks for the replies, i finally put eyes on a Car Mate yesterday. It was a decent trailer but there is no way it is worth the extra $1200 over a Haulmark Passport. The wiring was no better than the wiring on my utility trailer, they did have LED lights and they were mounted with so much sealant that it was running down inside of the trailer. I do like the fact of the one piece roof and the lifetime leak warranty along with the lifetime floor warranty. I dont want to sit hear and nit pick their brand as people have different things they look for in a trailer. Going to look around and see what other trailers are in the area and take a look at them as well.

    Actually, I would recommend AGAINST aluminum if it will be dragged in the winter months, specifically because the salt eats at the aluminum badly. And, as far as SnoPro goes, I can't say enough bad things about them and their product. I had more quirky little issues with their clamshell top on a snowmobile trailer than I would care to even remember.

    When looking at trailers, be sure to get a sense for overall integrity of the structure - especially the floor. 16" center for support beams and heavier plywood on the floor will give you years more use than 24" centers and thinner plywood (just one example). The torsion axle trailers will generally pull more smoothly with lighter loads. Once loaded up, they will be comparable with leaf spring axles.
