What Taz said. I'd be afraid that the frame is just two pieces of channel. That's not very strong by itself. A good sturdy trailer will have sides a foot high or more. Those add a lot of strength.
And where Rio is talking about is Sikeston in south east Missouri. There are several trailer manufacturers in the area, and they probably all build a good product.
Do ask about tires though; a friend picked up his new trailer and found that it came with four Bald Eagles. They told him that unless you specify different, they put used passenger car tires on it, just to get it home.
