Hi everyone. We are considering a trip this fall that would be 9 days and would go from Utah to Canada and back. We have been looking into trailers. I talked with Tom about a Tailwind. He is a great guy, has an enormous wealth of knowledge, and there is no doubt that would be my first choice if money were no object. It sounds as if they are an engineering marvel. Bushtec and the Escapade (from California Sidecars) seemed like nice trailers too, but were both in the $5,000 range nicely equipped and with matching paint. Just recently, I have been considering an Aluma MCT which would be $1500 brand new. I have been talking with Thomas Bus Sales about the Aluma and they seem like awesome people to work with. Obviously, it is not in the same league as the others mentioned above. But considering that we would likely only use the trailer a couple of times per year, it is hard for me to justify spending all the extra money on the more expensive ones. Just wondering if anyone has any feedback or suggestions. Is the lack of shock absorbers a problem? Seems like any of the four mentioned hold their value pretty well. Anything else I should be considering?
