I loved the 12' dove on the DC, but the very few I was able to look at in person had some QC issues that I think should not have left the factory. They only run their torque tube for the front half of the flat section, and to be perfectly honest I'm not crazy about buying any new design within the first few years of production - referring to their new engineered beam frame. They seem to get good reviews, but I'm just a skeptical person and can be overly analytical at times.
Pricewise in my case, the D-C and Load Trail were too close to call, and PJ has priced themselves out of the market when comparing apples to apples. It'll be a month or two before my trailer gets here, so time will tell.
There's a lot of difference in pricing between dealers on the same trailer, so don't be afraid to shop around and take a little drive to find the best value. When pricing the D-C trailers, there was a $5900 spread on quotes for the same exact trailer from highest to lowest. And no, $5900 is not a typo.
Best of luck in whatever you decide.

If cfpinz selected the Diamond C trailer that would sure be a good enough sign to me to choose it to. He knows equipment.

There is a big sale at Tyler Brothers and Maryville TN (no buyer premium) this week and just going through the auction quickly online I seen some nice trailers. It is unbelievable how cheap some of this equipment is going (talk about farmers losing their azz on equipment)
