    My motorycle trailer is a Cargo Express, and my car hauler is a Haulmark, and I have nothing bad to say about either one. The Cargo Express is in general a cheaper (Price wise) trailer than a similar Haulmark.

    If price were no object I'd tell you to look at Thule trailer (Yes, Thule the bike rack company makes trailers as well) they are damn nice, but a little on the pricey side.

    Yes, I have seen thule at my local trailer dealer, they market a crazy expensive clamshell snowmobile trailer that looks like snopro but with their logo now almost double the price!

    I have always wondered about the ones home depot or lowes sell, any good?

    Carson +1. I had one which was real nice. I bought a piece of equipment on a 'Texas Bragg' trailer which wasn't so good.

    I have a Wells Cargo and can't say enough good things about it. All steel construction and build like a rock. They do tend to weight more than the Haulmarks and Paces because of the all steel construction though. My 2.7 4-banger pulls it though loaded with dive gear.
