This is true, though I believe once you reach a certain point you can make a good bit of money as an enchanter doing high-level weapon and armor enchants. However, it is an extremely costly process to get to this point and I can't say that it'd be worth it. But you can charge out the ass for enchants, though.
The best thing about skinning is how easy it is. You can skin more than half the mobs in the game, and it levels up extremely quickly. My Warrior's skinning is up to 287 now and I'm only level 44.
