What are you going to haul in it? If you are only planning to haul grain get an ag hopper so you don't have to worry about the hoppers getting stuck on ditches or railroad tracks. If you are planning to haul commodities I would suggest getting the biggest trap doors available, nothing shorter than 78 inch sidewalls, and a good rubber mallet. When it comes to brands it's easy to get in a pissing contest, but who is your closest dealership? Are they decent to work with? What kind of resale does that brand get? Semi trailers are good property if they get taken care of. I always suggest buying new trailers and used trucks because trailers keep their value, and new trucks often times are not any more reliable than older trucks. Just my 2 cents.
