I bought an enclosed trailer last year (7'x16'). I've always used open trailers and wanted to try out an enclosed. I ran the enclosed this season and actually sold it last week because I just like my open trailers more. Here's what I liked about my enclosed: mowers were always out of the rain and I didn't have to unload all the equipment everyday. Now what I didn't like was it made my fuel costs go way up, took longer to make my routes due to going slower because of more weight than my open trailer, and it was alot more difficult to get into some driveways if I couldn't park on the road.
I never had it wrapped with my name and info. on it just because I was trying it out for a year but that definately seems like it would be good advertisement. I'm looking into buying a box truck for next year. They seem easier to drive than an enclosed but have the same benefits. You should look into those before you make your decision. You can get a good used one for under 10k.
