With a powder coated system you have a better bonding, harder and scratch and chip resistant paint. It also holds off rust and keeps your trailer looking good for a longer period of time. Since your trailer and load will rely on the axles and tires, you need to find one with good axle quality and size. You can either get one with torsion flex axles or leaf spring axles. It is more expensive to buy quality torsion axles. And when they are loaded, they give a much better ride and pull. The reason is because of its more controlled torque load on the flexible mechanics of the axle. The leaf spring axle focuses more on the down pressure of the load. Towing and handling is better will torsion axles since the trailer height can be lowered. One important thing to consider are its brakes. Make sure that each axle under your trailer has brakes. Manufacturers build them with brakeless axles, the retailer sells them and the consumer deals with the consequences. Always make sure that every axle on the trailer you are viewing is equipped with brakes.
