Any experience with the Covered Wagon enclosed trailers from Georgia?

Anthony,

It would appear they use an I Beam frame which means they have outriggers extending to the bottom of the trailer:

@ https://www.coveredwagontrailers.com/size-8.5x26---8.5x32-ta.html

The outriggers are notorious for broken welds.

This leads to trailer frame flexing - racking of the structure - tearing of the roof.

I am on my way now to Fitzgerald, GA to pick up my replacement trailer from Colony Cargo Trailers:

I will only do business with them .... :-)

Wow, that's a $5000 increase in price for an all tubular frame?

Thanks for the tip Jim. I called Tim and he quoted me a better price than the Colony Cargo website had. At $1.60/mile he can deliver it to me cheaper than what I can buy a (non-tubular) Covered Wagon trailer for here in League City!

Thanks Bob,

I went and looked at the 8 1/2 x 20 enclosed Covered Wagon trailer.

Anybody own a Covered Wagon enclosed trailer or know anything about them?
