Trailer Recommendations

So I'm looking to get a new cargo trailer to use for daily towing of construction equipment. Looking at getting a 7x16.
Over the years i have owned haulmark, cargo mate, car mate and american hauler. Now i see so many new brands and it sounds like every company splits and becomes a new company.

Looking for recommendations on brand you guys like that was bought in the last 2 years (as anything before that may have been a company that sold its operations)

Thanks so much

I don't own a flatbed, so I rent one. The local rental place has Cronkhite trailers. They are very good trailers, they trail nice, are well build and they definitely go the distance. I would buy one in a heartbeat.

Edit: here's a link to what the rental place has. They have the model 2600DR according to the website:
1993 K3500- 4x4, single cab/long bed, single rear wheels, 4.10 rear end, F vin, GM3 turbo, Nv4500 manual with Luk clutch and single mass conversion, 3" front lift/level, factory red interior.

A few mods: 3" straight pipe, Bosch boost gauge, Bosch glow plugs, Draw-tite class 5 hitch. Hi-flow water pump, 94+ radiator and coolant tank conversion, kept the original single thermostat setup (at least for now).

Gone but not forgotten: 2001 silverado 2500hd CC/SB, 4x4, 6.0 vortec, 229k miles when I traded it.
