It will come down to, like a lot of things, how much maintenance do you want to put into the trailer as time goes. Buy a cheap one, spend some time upfront taking care of it, ie spraying the salt water off etc, making sure the water is out of the tubes to the best of your ability, when rust starts to show, wire brush it and rustoleum it ASAP. Maybe a coat of wax of all things on the trailer. In the end a cheap trailer could be the best option.
On the other hand, if you are a lazy SOB, then a more expensive trailer may be te better choice, ie one that is galvinized etc.
For your small 9.5' boat, not sure that it is really going to matter that much.
