Big Tex is probably the best goose neck (manufactured) trailer you will find. I Run the northeast and i see some Big Tex trailers that are 10 plus years old and still have paint and look O.K. The salt up here trashes most steel trailers in a few years.
If you are getting a dual wheel trailer make sure you get a torque tube, also electric over hydraulic disc brakes are the only way to go.
I have about 5 18' bumper pulls at work and they are good, no known issues with any of them, I have hauled up to 8k on them which is a little over it's max. Good simple designs, my only complaint would be the fenders ben easily.
i have a couple of lighter weight trailers from big tex. ones a 7,000lb rated, the other is 12,000. from what i have seen of these and many other's i have been around, they are pretty good trailers for the money, and i wouldnt hesitate to buy another. this being said, i wouldnt by any means make the claim they are the best on the market. they have a major building plant about an hr away from my home, been there several times. if you are trying to save a little coin, try buying a left over model from them. i have seen brand new trailers on there lot that were a year or two old. they are starting to cut deals on these rather then sit on them.
we just bought one for work. only had one load on it but it was around 13,000 lbs if not more. and I asked the guy who delivered it what he thought of the trailer and he said it worked great. Goose neck with tripple axles btw
