    Hey Bart, I would go with a steel trailer. They are heavier but in our part of the country one hail storm will ruin one with alum. skin. I got one here in town from Youngs. May not of helped you but gives you something to consider.

    I vote with Iceman. Featherlight makes a good trailer. You should consider adding the chocks inside the trailer. They make it much eaiser to secure a bike.

    I would look into the enclosed trailer that has an area with a tv, a shower outside and in front an area that pulls up and has a stove and microwave. I cannot remember the name of the company though, sorry. I seen them at a show a few weeks ago and they were really nice.

    Be patient. My husband found a nice enclosed trailer for less than half the retail value on Craigslist. They are out there if you have the time to wait it out.

    I think it might be a Haulmark.

    I've been using Craiglook: Craigslist Search for a while. It allows you to enter Zip and Price filters to narrow the search. Sort by Price Low to High for the cheapest of similiar items. Its much easier to use than Craigslist.org IMO.

    I've used Alumna open trailers and have always been very satisfied with them. I prefer them over Featherlite due to the lower cost for the Alumna. Like others have said, you can same some bucks if you find a used trailer.

    Yeah, I don't want a 5000 + dollar trailer being trashed by a hail storm for sure. I'm just trying to find something to get the scoots out of the ice and snow and to friendlier roads, but I definitely want it to be around for a while.
