Which steel is best suited for a horse trailer



2004

Hi

We are looking into purchasing a horse trailer and found they are made of different metals each claiming to be better than the other. The two are electro galvanized or galvanneal steel. Which would hold up better and withstand the elements rain/ rust etc. We don't live in a salt water area.

Thanks,

Galvanneal steel is steel that has had a modified galvanized coating designed for application under paint. Electrogalvanized steel is steel that has been zinc electroplated. I think the galvanneal will greatly outlast the electrogalvanized.
