Trail et or Titan

I am looking at getting a day runner. Both trailers are 2002, two horse slants with front tack room and in better than good condition. The Trail et is a little taller. Titan (avalanche) is galvanealed which is suppose to be a little better than galvanized but the Trail et is aluminum over galvanized steel. Both are priced the same. Anyone have knowledge of these trailers?

If I read your post correctly, the Trail et is Aluminum skin over a galvanized frame ? While the Titan is steel sheet metal skin ?

I wouldnt even consider the all steel, put whatever fancy term or coating on it, but they all rust.
Id buy the aluminum skinned one, then undercoat the heck out of the frame.

I recall around that time period there were a couple makes (don't recall which) that had issues with aluminum and steel trailers. The problem was galvanic corrosion from the dissimilar metals and not being properly treated. So look that Trail et over carefully, if all looks good then go for it. If it had an issue it should be showing obvious signs.

Sundowner had some issues with that. We will look it over.

My friend has the Titan. It's only a few years old and it is already starting to show some corrosion around the seams where the skin meets the frame. I like the design of their slant load. It fits my TB well, but I'd be concerned about the longevity.
