Best value tandem DRW gooseneck

OK, lets have it. Based on first hand knowledge and experience, what's your opinion on the best value dual tandem gooseneck (price/quality)
Want to go with tilt and 30'.
Not looking for highest priced, but best value. I have the truck to pull it, now I need the trailer.
I have only looked at PJ & Econoline.

I like my PJ, although its a 28' beavertail with pop-up deck on tail. I like the wide gussetting on hitch both forward and to sides of hitch frame riser compared to some of the other brands.

From what I have seen in my search for a 20 + 5 GN.

Best all around bang for buck is Corn Pro.
PJ and Gator where about the same.
Load Trail or Load Max ( Same company) Have what I think is the best product out there but you pay GREATLY for it. But that is just what I have seen and gathered. I got my prices this year the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, KY. ( Show prices seem to be about 250-500 bucks off normal price. or at least that is how it used to be )

Found a nice used H&H goose I can get for ~$5,000 that has adjustable beavertail and slide out ramps. Tires about 80%. 24K GVWR.
I kind of like the idea of a tilt, though.

Brute trailers out of texas look very well made. We bought a Delta lo pro 28ft. It is ok but the wiring isn't as good as the canadian built trailers. The freight on the Brute took it out of our budget. The brute tail is the best that I have seen.

I have pulled some enconolines and was not impressed with their sping setup. I think there are better trailers out there. How ever the ones I pulled where not G/N they were pintles like the one shown at the top of the page, the G/Ns look way better from the photos.

I started checking out Diamod C trailers because we'd like a gooseneck for hay. They seem to have a bit of everything.

I ordered me a new PJ gooseneck this last summer. Have put 10K on it including a trip from GA to AK over some pretty rough roads with no problems
