Has anyone had experience with Load Master Trailers on a 22' Whaler ?

If you're talking the Florida Load Master guys, then not whaler specific, but Load Master Trailer specific experience, yes.

Yes, I am considering an aluminum trailer from LoadMaster Trailers. They gave me a quote that sounds quality but at a price- Did you have any impressions of their work ?

At a price, yes they are. Worth the price, absolutely. Are the guys from the factory good guys, absolutely.
Experience: In '97 my dad bought a 20' Edgewater, with a Load Master trailer. His first complaints started in roughly 6 months, but were related to the Tie Down engineering Disc Brake calipers and not the trailer construction. He called the factory, talked to the VP or one of the guys "up the food chain". The Load Master guys checked out the deal with the calipers and said Tie Down was "reengineering them". A couple of months later, dad called Load Master again, they picked up the trailer at the house on their next visit to West Palm Beach. They hauled it back to their factory, and installed the "reengineered parts". The initial reengineering was better, but still not "great". So dad talked to Load Master again, and they picked up the trailer and hauled it back to the factory to swap the discs for drums, and delivered it back to the house. They didn't do it for free on the 2 year old trailer, but they did recognize that a customer is a customer. In talking to them again early this year, dad is debating whether to convert back to the Tie Down Discs now that they have reengineered them again. Load Master guys still say "Sure, we can do that for you..."
Says something when the factory guys will pickup a trailer 200 miles from their factory, modify it, and drop it off again, just to be sure the customer is a satisfied customer. They didn't say they would swap it back to discs for free, but they haven't stopped wanting to be sure the customer is happy with their product!
Find me a car maker with this attitude, I'd probably buy their car...

They'll build the trailer the way you want it, with stainless hardware if you want it... Talk to the factory guys about that. My dad built a floating lift and had Load Master supply the stainless U-bolts for that project. The lift gets dunked in saltwater atleast 5 times a week. The bolts look fine...
