I read thru posts for the last couple of years and would like any fresh opinions/experiences with these trailers.
I am in the market for a GN with 26-30' deck with the typical features. Would prefer aluminum but the galvanized logans seem popular.
Any comments are appreciated.
thanks

If you can afford it, and have a big enough truck to pull it then a Logan hands down. But man are they heavy....

We have a bumper pull that we haul all over the country to shows and it's only 24' total with the V and i think it is like 6500lbs empty.

I ordered a Rance renegade gn w a 24' box. All aluminum. I can answer any ?s you have just pm me. I love it. I'm heading to togwotee now if you happen to me in the area and want to take a look. I completely agree, the Logan is a beautiful trailer but I wanted aluminum, less weight, and most importantly I didn't want to be pulling a barn door for a trailer. Those things are high as snoop.

U can buy a all sport logan which is lower and has wheel wells. I currently have a bumper pull mission that has wheel wells and it doesn't bother me one bit. I am going to be on the market for a GN trailer soon and it will either be a Logan or mission. I just haven't decided that I want to drop 50k on a trailer.

I am not familiar with all sport logan. I am looking at the horsepower they don't seem excessively tall.

Well I guess I can cross Logan off of my list of brands for a new trailer. Check the insulation out at the 5:00 mark on the video. Definitely looks like pretty bad. Granted it's not a horsepower but u would sure thiink it would be better then this.

Bet you would be surprised when you find out they are all like that.

Spent a lot of time hauling a mission 28' GN around the last 5 years. in the higher option. Still has small wheel wells inside but a good balance of ground clearance for when your in some more tricky terrain but still fairly low and hides behind the truck good for towing nicely. Its all alum frame besides the gooseneck nose so that makes a big difference and it still looks great after pounding it all around the western US. Really the only external damage is because of clipping cones in construction zones and tweaking the fender flares.

Its pretty light, has heat stereo and a couple boxes so very mild build out and it is NOT heavy when empty. I would say 5k max, need to hunt down the tag on it. Definately built a little on the lighter side but also nice to pull it. I have been inside some of the logans and they are for sure higher build quality but thats reflected in price and weight. I think each brand sort of fills in a good niche in the market and just ifguring out which one best suites you.
