so many

I hate sounding stupid, but why are there so many different brands of trailers by the same manufacturer, how do you determine what to buy, and which brands are the most/reliable with the best track record I have been learning a lot from these forums. thank you

Weight range, floorplan, and colors (in that order).

Make sure you are looking at a weight range suitable for your tow vehicle's remaining payload..

In that weight range, find a floorplan that fits your lifestyle and intended use.

Find a color/decal implementation you like.

Negotiate (using the tips on this forum) to get the best price

for us it was: type of trailer(there are many), floorplan, price and finally quality/fit & finish.

brand didn't matter but we narrowed it down dramatically through finding the floorplan we wanted.

of course, the capabilities of your tow vehicle, will also dramatically eliminate a bunch.
