Can anyone relate their positive or negative experiences with the Haulmark Edge race trailer. We are considering one with the Escape Living Quarter package installed so any experience with that option would also be appreciated.

A good friend of mine has a Haulmark thats is 3 yrs old. 1/2 the screws are loose and rusty. So the sides have gotton real wavy and it looks like junk. The dealer says T.S. (tough s-it). For what those trailers cost they should hold up much better.

I own a Pace Trailer (no living quarters)I have had it for 3 years now, the trailer is just like new, I did have a few problems with wiring and cabinet hinges/latches in the first year-I simply called pace with my problems and they scheduled it to be fixed, in fact they went through the entire trailer and found a few more items that needed repaired that I was not aware of (door latch, exterior lights falling out, ramp door cables needed adjusted etc...) They repaired everything under the 1 year warranty.
I would reccomend a Pace trailer to anyone, they do cost more but I think the customer service is worth it.
since I had the repairs done (2 years ago) I have not had any thing else go wrong with it.

I have a 44' Millennium Trailer with the 12' living quarters. got it last year and only had one small problem with a loose electrical connection. this winter I tightened all the screws holding the interior together as they all seem to work 1/4 turn loose.

All of those less expensive screw together trailers that are lined have 2 problems.

First, nothing is there becasue they are giving you something. The interior forms a unibody type frame when everything is kept tight. They use self drilling screws as it is faster and cheaper to build.

Second, most are heavy. I don't put a nickles worth of faith in the spec plate or title weight on them, weigh them and see. Usually to get the same stuctural strength out of cheaper or lighter weight material means you have to have more material.

Whatever you buy, be sure the axles are rated to carry the load of the trailer, what you plan to haul in it, and your car. And make sure it has trailer tires not passenger car tires. Again DO NOT BELIEVE anyones published weights, weigh it.

This probably doesn't help but I bought a used Classic trailer this year. I think they are about the best trailer you can buy. Not a lot of them around either. They are quite a bit more expensive though. about 9000 for a 24 footer with no options. I think you get what you pay for when it comes to trailers.
