Which is a better trailer, can you still put shelves in the nose? If i want a 20ft trailer's space do i have to go larger with a v nose?

V-nose's are great in that they give you more space than a conventional trailer would. I've never owned anything other than a v-nose so I can't comment if it's better than a flat front. Yes, you can put shelves or anything in the V that you would like. On my trailer I have a rear ramp door, 36" side door and a ramp door on one side of the V-nose. No, you can get a V-nose in any length you want... Here is a pic of mine. Mine tows great but is heavy when loaded, about 11,000 lbs total...

V nose all the way for me. I used the V to put all my tools, supplies, oil and gas.

Otherwise you need to go to a next size bigger trailer and backing and maneuvering becomes a beotch.

I get much better MPG's pulling my 16' V-Nose loaded then I did with my old open 16' trailer. The V really cuts down on the drag and it gives you a little more room w/o taking up real cargo space.

Is reversing a V-nose any more difficult than a regular trailer?

I find no difference.

I have a V-nose, the extra space is used for a porta-pot, workbench, fridge, and microwave. The girls just don't like going in a coffee can. There is a wall (closes off the PP) that has pegboard on one side and shelves on the other. The shelves are right by the walkin door, so it's basically wasted space anyway. With all this, lunch breaks can be taken without going to a convenient store or fast food joint. It saves about two hours a day, and gas going places to take breaks.

Pics please, the inside mainly, with the porta-pot, workbench, fridge, and microwave. How do you power the fridge and microwave?
