I found a Valley 2 horse BP I like for a great price...I'm just wondering why.
I also live in a coastal area. Steel trailers are cheaper to build than aluminum, Aluminum also holds it's value. There's also less maintenance on an aluminum trailer. I have a 16ft steel stock bp that is a 96 model and it is just now starting to show it's age as far as rust. It's not pretty but it's safe and reliable.If you can park it under a shelter and keep a coat of wax on it they will last a long time. Mine sets out in the weather and has held up well....Good luck...
