Excel Wild Cargo

In reading posts, it sounds like the best choice for FT use of a TH might be the Excel Wild Cargo, but I am having a hell of a time finding one for sale. First, the idiotic Excel web site doesn't make it easy. It will only offer a single nearest dealer. I've tried 4 different zip codes and all four dealers have ZERO Wild Cargos available...are these still built? Or does the manufacturer have trouble keeping up with demand...or am I just unlucky. They are built in Kansas (and I am in Idaho), so maybe these are rare in my neck of the woods. If anyone knows a dealer who might stock these in decent numbers, please let me know. I don't mind traveling to find one, but right now, I only have a few pics to wet my interest, but not sure how many zip codes I'll have to try to simply find out what these sell for. So, if anyone knows a good source to get prices and other info, I'd appreciate the help as the manufacturers web site isn't much help (no prices and very limited pics other than a floor plan).

I have to wonder how much they want to sell their product and if they put so little effort into their website, how much does this spill over to their product????

Regards.

Excel

Excel makes a good trailer, they make their own frames for start. But their quality comes at a price. Try looking for it on the Traderonline.com site, using the year make and model - google it. I don't think you will find many since they do a lot of custom builds. I think the Excel web site had one but I think it was sold already.

I don't think many dealers are stocking these units since there are so many options available that most of us have factory ordered with the options we required.

Custom Order

If I was going to purchase a $50K+ FW or TH it would definitely be custom ordered, especially if it was a Excel.
