I was hoping for a few responses to this question. I am considering a new trailer also. I've been researching the Aluma trailers, they look pretty sweet. I am almost for sure going aluminum. If it's a raft trailer as mine will be it makes a lot of sense to me.
I'm going to second steel. Gravel and dirt roads are tough on aluminum trailers. I see a lot of aluminum cattle trailers that are riddled with cracked welds from back road use. They are pretty stinky to repair. If you do go aluminum, make sure it's overbuilt.
I just went to Billings and bought one of those trailers that Sweencat refers to. It is real nice and a great deal. It's also nice paying the guy who built it. Super nice guy. Thanks for the info guys.
