Has anyone used the aluminum brackets vs. galvanized? They are a little more expensive, I found a set of 8 with stainless u-bolts, nuts and washers for about $210 compared to $150 or so for everything galv.
I'd gladly pay the extra $$ if they last even a year or two longer.
I've thought about notching the carpet and putting the brackets right against the cypress, but I've never seen that with all the trailers you see at the ramps???
Any input would be appreciated.
