anyone have experience/opinions on Spartan brand car trailers?

Recommended Posts

Been doing some shopping around for a new enclosed car trailer.  As most of you know the prices and options, build specs, quality, etc. are all over the place.  In the past we've owned Wells Cargo, Pace, etc.  This trailer will be for personal use only, no hauling of customer cars, lots of long trips, etc.  I'm not concerned with the name, and I'm not looking to spend a fortune on fancy paint jobs and doo dads.  What I am looking for is a strong, well constructed trailer, with a reasonable warrantee and good dealer/manufacturer support.  Thus far for quality and pricing I've been somewhat impressed with the Spartan line, but haven't had any experience with them and don't know of anyone else that has had one either.  Looking to hear from anyone that may have.  Thanks

Don’t know Spartan but 90 percent of what I see today is junk. I have owned Wells and Pace. Had issues with both of them, way more than I should have. Unless you spend over 25 k expect issues. Sick but true. Ed

Hi Ed, I fully understand where you're coming from.  With over 40 years of playing this game behind me, I pretty much agree with you.  Trailers are mostly a PIA, but a necessary one in our hobby.  I must say that the last Pace we had was probably the best of the lot.  I put well over 150K miles on that rig and except for normal maintenance it never gave any real  problems.  Unfortunately our local Pace dealer closed and there isn't another that close by, although I still haven't ruled out buying another Pace product.  I have heard that their overall build quality has gone down over the last 5-10 years so I'd definitely go have a look in person before buying.  The Spartan thing came up when a local trailer dealer advertised one. Never heard of them before but it's not a bad looking rig, not bottom priced but not what a Pace would cost either.  This trailer will not see near the use that our past trailer's have experienced and will be stored inside so I don't necessarily need the toughest thing out there.  I'm no longer hauling commercially or transporting customer's cars.  So I just was wondering if anyone had any experiences/opinions on the brand.  Thanks again,, Bob
