Haulin By Forest River Trailers??

Anygood?
http://www.johnstrailersales.com/haulin/ls.html

6X10 $1655
v-nose $200
Ramp door $165
option pkg $165
total $2185

good deal? I know i can get an aluminum for 2x the price.

are these good quality, or do the screws and frame rust right away, bouncy ride???

After i buy a place for myself and the soon to be family, I was going to treat myself to a trailer and use "gramps" van to tow it and sleep in. No more tents

I've hd mine for almost 3 yrs and theres no rust and its steel. As for bouncy ride, they are pretty stable even empty. They weight 900-1100lbs empty so its really not that big of a deal (mines is leaf sprung). If you are that worried, get a torsion axle version. ALot "smoother" ride.

Would you buy one again? I don't see an option to upgrade the axles unless you get the 7' version... how much smoother is it?

I was pretty amazed at the pricing since used trailers are selling for about this much with compareable features.

Hmmmm....US Cargo makes them under the Haulin brand? US Cargo makes a good trailer, not sure why they would brand a cheaper model.

I highly suggest staying away from leaf springs. Very bouncy.
