I have a 28 ft Cargo Mate, good value and havnt had any problems with it. I used to sell Vintage trailers and I had one. They used to have some problems but I think that they have them straightened out now. They are a good trailer Once you get into a certain price range it is just a matter of what you want. There are good and bad with all of them.

I have an '06 28' Raptor by American Hauler. If you have a dragster, order a flat floor and roll the axles back, I know this from experience! Extra height will also get you a longer door which helps too. Good luck! 8) JB Forgot: wish I had ordered 30 or 32' instead....

Thanks, I have a door car (1972 nova) If you had to do it all over again would still went with a RAPTOR? I can get a haulmark for about $800 cheaper but it don't have near the options as the raptor! I know the guy that owns the trl company here in columbus ohio where I'm buying the trl and he gave a big $$$ break on this trl..$9,600 plus tax which put it at $10,100 out the door.The haulmark out the door is $9,300 but don't have cabinets,110,runners and a bunch of other little things I would have to put in it.

What do you mean by rolling the axles back?How does a flat floor give you extra height? Excuse my ignorance just curious.

The way I understand it it gives you less wheelwell which allows you to open the car door so you won't have to climb thru the window. I don't think he means floor to roof height. Just height for getting in and out of the car.
