ATC Cargo or Legend Cargo Trailers

I'm shopping for a very good 7x14 cargo trailer to carry a Polaris General side by side. We're planning to take a couple of years and travel the country including a trip to Alaska. I've narrowed it down to two Trailers. The all Aluminum Legend Deluxe or ATC Cargo Trailers. They both come standard with all the good stuff like Dexter Torsion Axles, Aluminum Wheels, Screwless exteriors, Led Lights, 7' interiors and, and, and ..
Any Pro's/Con's on either trailer ?

Have no experience with the Legend. However, I did own two different ATC '24 enclosed car haulers. Both very nice trailers. I bought both used. One had a number of issues but all were related to the cabinets that were installed by the dealer and a repair to the roof which was done poorly. I sold it and bought the second. Again, a very nice trailer. Reasonable light, towed nicely. Owned it for less than a year before it was stolen.

My advise would be to put a tracker on whatever trailer you buy. I have one on my current trailer.

I would lean on the Legend. Look into the fine details, the Advantek floor is huge bonus. Extremely strong and dense. All of the wiring is run through the tubing and not scotch locked. I personally have a 6x13 Legend that is standard height, it's a 2009 and looks great. It does have the normal dings on the front from stone and such, but never lost a weld. The frame looks as good as the day it was built, and I live in Michigan. I should also mention that I used to work (sales side) at the dealership where they are manufactured in St Johns MI.

Mine has finished walls inside and no brakes. You don't have to worry about drilling and through bolting for D rings, the floor will handle it. I've really only used mine to haul the Ultra classic I had for a while, now it sits more than anything but I can't get myself to get rid of it.....

I forgot all about Intech, I did see them online. Probably the nicest, most complete and finished trailers on the market. Thanks ..!

Not to hijack Stufarmer's thread, but I am looking to do the same thing, with a small caveat. I will be using it in my business (rarely) so I will need a larger trailer. I have priced steel and aluminum trailers with the following specifications: 24' V-nose, 7'6" interior height, plywood finished walls w/ 1 row e-track on each wall, 2 rows e-track on floor, barn doors for loading freight and machinery, 7k torsion axles, electric/hydraulic disc brakes, G-rated tires, spare mounted inside, extra set of tail lights (mounted high like the stacker trailers), and reverse lights. The steel ones were all around $11k. The brands are Continental Cargo, Anvil, and Cargo Mate. The Aluminum ones are Sundowner, Intech, and EZ Hauler. The aluminum ones were all around $20-21k. Having never owned one of these trailers I am looking for someone (besides the salesman) to talk me into the aluminum trailer. I know I will regret buying the steel one in 6 months. Aside from weight savings, what is the major benefit? Any suggestions. Thanks.
