I'm just curious about what you don't like about Thuro-bilts. I've owned one since 2003 and I absolutely love it. I've also owned a Circle J too and I like those too, but my Circle J didn't have all the fancy options that my Thuro-Bilt came with. The only down side I've found with my Thuro-Bilt is it's a little heavy, but I figure the trade off between that and a lighter weight aluminum trailer is that mine is sturdier in case of an accident, plus it doesn't cost as much. It also hauls really straight and true even with super heavy horses and I haven't had to put on sway bars ever. After 16 years of ownership, the rust on my trailer is quite minimal. Much less than my Circle J had. I think it may be due to the double wall construction. It will have more rust though than any aluminum, but I'm ok with the small amount it's incurred.
