Default Trailer overhaul - need recommendations Fairfax/Loudoun/Prince William...

Hi all - I did a search and didn't find anything more recent than 2013. Anyone have any recommendations for a company that will do a complete trailer overhaul - wheel bearings, electric drum brakes, and a complete rewiring?

I have an older open deck steel trailer, and through using it last year, discovered that apparently it's had an unsorted braking system (brake wiring on two of the wheels were clipped/disconnected). It's also had an intermittent issue with lights. The existing wiring is all vampire splices.

Looking for recommendations ideally in Herndon/Sterling area, but will take recs for places in western Fairfax, Loudoun, or Prince William as well.

Thanks in advance,
ed

Taking notes. Wish I had that last yr. before I tore my trailer apart, installed new rough cut floor boards, new stake sides, wiring and complimentary bunch of busted knuckles.

Not sure if he's still in business, but hit up Freeman Trailer Services (Jamie Freeman).

202-390-6568 is the last number I have for him.
