i have had good luck with timpte and wilson, have never used a jet. i think the wilson has an edge over the timpte in quality though IMO. Both are good sturdy trailers, i have grown to like the traps on the wilson a little more than the timpte, i haven't used the strap style traps on the wilson just the standard style.

We have a wilson and this past year we needed another trailer and we got a jet. I like the jet better, its got the curved corners so it cleans out nice, the hopper doors aren't geared and open a lot easier than the wilson. I like the ladder on the jet better to and having two windows on the side of it is nice too.

For quality, capacity, and resale value, they would be ranked Wilson- Tempte- Jet , have owned all three.

We have had Wilsons and Jets. Both good trailers and there are things I like on each of them. The new Jet hoppers open as easy or easier than the Wilson strap doors and the rounded corners clean out a bit easier in 25% or better moisture corn. I like the side Windows in a Jet but I think I saw Wilson offers that now. Wilsons probably have a bit more aluminum in them but they usually weigh 500 more than a similar Jet. I can't say we have had more problems with one over the other. Our last Wilson just got traded for another new Jet. More to do with the fact we have a Jet dealer 10 miles away and We have to go 100 or more to get to a Wilson dealer.

strap openers are a option on wilsons I've been told they are trouble in the winter with snow and ice buildup
