Trailer choice

I am looking into buying a 6x10 enclosed trailer, the two brands I'm looking at are cargomate and Carry on anyone have any experience with either of these trailers?

I have a 17yo 7X16 US Cargo (cargo mate) that I haul my mowers in. It gets used about 4 times a week. I would recommend one in a heart beat! I am just now having to replace the floor in it. It isn't rotted or anything just starting to sag where my walkbehind wheels sit and bounce all the time. -Jason

Just bought a new Carry On 8.5x16 a few months ago. Its ok but doesn't seem as well built as the Triton I had years ago. Price was right though. It should do what I need it to.

cargo craft is the best, imo. whatever you get, make sure to get one with steel tube studs and roof bows. don't get hat post or z post. try to get a one piece roof as well.

Went with the cargomate. What kinda miles do you get on your tires on the USCargo? Are they bias or radial? I have bias and I am about to make a 3,000 mile trip the tires are new and shop told me that usually get about 6k out of a set of tires.

I really don't know about the mileage of my trailer tires. I usually go by the years. I have goodyears on it now and have had them for about 8 years with no troubles. I am planning on replacing them soon just so I don't have a blowout at 60mph on the interstate. -Jason
